Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

He's an animal, that Adam Cayton-Holland. Therefore, the hyphenated one will fit right in tonight, when he headlines this year's Denver Zoo Comedy Night, which benefits several environmental and wildlife conservation agencies, including the Orangutan Conservancy, Madagascar Faunal Group, WildAid and DECOIN. And although the funny former Westworder will be the stand-up guy at this event, there will also be tasty hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, plus both live and silent auctions, each featuring animal-themed items, to keep the crowds busy when he's not joke-ifying.

Comedy Night runs from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. tonight at the zoo, 2300 Steele Street in City Park; tickets to the over-21 event are $25. Get information at or call 303-376-4916.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
