Chuck Roy on POTroast and his favorite public places to get high

Update: The location of Roy's upcoming set has been corrected below. If you know Denver comedy, you surely know Chuck Roy. The former anchor of the satirical newscast The Crop Report -- an Onion News Network-style series of short sketches on marijuana, Roy is one of the most established names in Denver comedy, hosting an endless rotation of events at Comedy Works (after making a name in L.A. on Craig Kilborn). And this Wednesday, Roy joins some of the town's most celebrated local comics at Comedy Works for POTroast -- a somewhat traditional roast, though instead of grilling a beloved yet past-his-prime icon, these roasters will be taking on an entity that many of them still love as much today as they did years ago: Ganja. We recently caught up with Chuck Roy to chat Amendment 64, his favorite public places to smoke, and why a stoned audience isn't as ideal as it sounds.
