Comedy

Greetings from Vox Phamalia!

The whole point of Vox Phamalia: Quadrapalooza, the Physically Handicapped Actors and Musical Artists League comedy show opening tonight at the Avenue Theater for a two-weekend run, is that differently-abled people (or whatever the politically correct terminology is this week) have a sense of humor about themselves.

And they think you should, too. While director Edith Weiss promises the material is funny upon funny, the Phamaly troupe thought they would drive the point in a little more by selling souvenirs at performances: a special line of greeting cards tailored to the disabled community. Following are a few of our favorites.

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.
