The perils of opening for Jeff Tweedy in Kansas City

Denver comedian Andrew Orvedahl takes on a heckler in Chiefs territory

By David Accomazzo
How do you handle a heckler? This isn’t even a comedy show. It’s not like you’re headlining Comedy Works in Denver; the rules are different here.

Monty Python's Spamalot

Theater

Since the troupe’s classic movies already contain hilarious, catchy songs, it was a natural step to translate the group’s signature humor to the stage.

Drinking away Christmas Eve in Conor McPherson's 'The Seafarer'

By Gary Zeidner
For most of the play, The Seafarer seems to be a tart, cynically humorous morality tale about the dangers of drink, but in the end it cops out, letting Sharky, Richard and the rest off the hook in the name of feelgood Christmas miracles.

How Tig Notaro made cancer her comedy muse

When life beat Tig Notaro down, she responded with a joke

By David Accomazzo
Just days before a performance at Largo in Los Angeles, Notaro received word that she had cancer in both breasts.Her normal set — quirky jokes, such as what a bee thinks about when it’s in a car going down the highway — just didn’t seem doable to her. So she chucked it, went on stage and bared it all. And her career exploded.

By Gary Zeidner
Mary Tyler “Molly” Ivins was a legendary American journalist far too few have heard of. Though she garnered her fair share of notoriety and praise over the course of her long and productive career, her populist, anti-government message was so cogently thought out and entertainingly presented that it deserves wider acknowledgment.

Just like real life

The truth comes out at Rancho Mirage

By Gary Zeidner
I’d be interested to hear the stories from Dietz’s own life that germinated into this play. I bet they’re doozies. After all, it takes a strong person to not only recognize that we keep secrets — often Mt. Everest-sized secrets — from our wives, husbands, parents, children and best friends, but also to take that uncomfortable knowledge and spin it into the kind of play that keeps you laughing out the door then makes you think hard for the rest of the night.

All the way

Boulder Dinner Theatre's men bare it all in 'The Full Monty'

By David Accomazzo
Historically, the terms “Rated R” and “dinner theater” have rarely been used in the same sentence. Dinner theater is something you dress up for, not a place to see, for example, men strip down to their skivvies (and then some).

The walking nightmares

Check out these Boulder-area haunted houses

By Dylan Owens
Under a full moon during the lead-up to Halloween, zombies, killer clowns and a bloody bride mill around in a defunct furniture store in Longmont’s Twin Peaks mall, snacking on burritos and corn chips while they trade scare tactics and reminisce about their former victims.
