The comedy night was mean, it was ugly, it was the toughest crowd in town -- if you could even get them to listen to you in the first place. But for many fledgling comics, the Squire was home on Tuesday nights. And then, in the cold of winter, they were kicked back out into the streets.
But while Baumhauer's thrown in the towel, the Squire's new general manager says that Comedy Night is definitely back every Tuesday night, hosted by milder but very good local comedian Sam Tallent. And it's the same funny, jeering dive-bar crowd.
Since there are many would-be comics needing to test their chops in the worst possible of all club environments, why not give the renewed tradition another chance? Admission is free and the laughs begin cutting through the murk of the Squire late, and keep going... until they go; call 303-333-9106 or visit the Facebook page for information.
