Another 100 Colorado Creatives: Kevin O'Brien

#53: Kevin O'Brien

A fixture in the local standup scene, Kevin O'Brien takes that scene a step or two forward every time he takes the mic. He's also served as the host of Arguments and Grievances, one of Denver's cleverest comedy nights, for nearly four years, and with fellow pop-culture aficionado Taylor Gonda, he co-hosts the thriving podcast These Things Matter, a mashup of culture-speak and insightful interviews with interesting people. We invited O'Brien to answer the 100CC questionnaire; read on to find out what makes his funny world spin.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
