Funny Boy

Indie comic Moshe Kasher has it all going for him: youth, brains, wit, a twisted edge and an inside track on what’s really funny in the 21st century. Once you’ve seen him, you won’t forget him. Comedy Works maven Wende Curtis certainly didn’t after she caught his “Best of the Fest” performance at this year’s Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival; she busted a gut over the anything-but-traditional Jewish comedian’s routine, and brought him in from Oakland for a three-night stand that starts with a 7:30 p.m. show tonight at Comedy Works South, 5345 Landmark Place in Greenwood Village.

Kasher, who’s also appeared on Jamie Foxx’s Laffapalooza and at the San Francisco SketchFest, will continue his limited local run with two performances nightly on Friday and Saturday; for showtimes and tickets, $12 to $20, go to or call 720-274-6800.

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.
