The ten best comedy events in Denver in August

While previous summers have given comedy fans a handful of semi-decent shows to look forward to, this August is so packed with top-shelf talent that it's difficult to limit a list of the highlights to just ten shows. In the month ahead we have two female comedy duos, two local festivals, a bit of food humor, and a drag queen who loves bingo. So do some sit-ups and strengthen your core, because August is going to have your abs cramping with laughter.
