Lucky '13: Stand-up comedian Heather Snow

This past year has been tough for many people, and we're eager to kiss 2012 goodbye. In hopes that 2013 will turn out to be much luckier for many, we invited some of the town's cultural tastemakers -- entrepreneurs and entertainers we're lucky to have in Denver -- to answer a trio of questions. We excerpted quotes from these Q&As in the New Year's Guide inserted in the December 13 issue of Westword, but we'll be featuring the complete interviews in a series of posts through the end of the year. Up next: Heather Snow.

Heather Snow is just one in a strong cadre of comedians continuing to push Denver as a viable place for standup comedy. Best known as the woman behind the famed (and co-ed) Ladies Laugh-In comedy night and a regular at open mics across the city, Snow has been putting herself out there for almost three years. Fresh off filming TV Guide Network's StandUp In Stilettos, Snow is getting some national attention she definitely deserves. But she took a moment to talk to Westword about having a September 11 birthday, and what it's like being a six-foot tall woman looking for a guy tall enough to kiss at midnight.
