Thick Skin at Comedy Works (Denver, CO)

Screen Shot 2018-09-03 at 5.37.26 PM.png

"Comedy at its Rawest

Enjoy comedy the way it's intended. No holds barred, no punches pulled, and no f**ks given. Watch seasoned pros and future stars battle each other for supremacy. Good sets will be awarded, bad sets will be punished. Feelings will be hurt, fun will be had.

Hosted by Greg Baumhauer and Mike Stanley. Baumhauer named the “Dark Prince of Colfax” by the Westword is who is known for running the raucous and raunchy Squire Lounge Comedy Night, dubbed the "meanest mic in America", helped cultivate the careers of some of Denver's most accomplished comedians, and ended others before they started. A fifteen year veteran in the Denver comedy scene, and winner of the 2007 New Talent Contest, Greg returns to doing what he does best-making fun of new comedians.

Greg's co-host Mike Stanley the host of Food Network's Food: Fact Or Fiction, was named "Best Chicago Stand-up Comedian" in a Peoples Choice poll done by the Chicago Reader and "Best Detroit Comedian" by HOUR Magazine. Another fifteen year comedy veteran, Mike tours internationally and has performed at several festivals including the Oddball Comedy Festival, and TBS Just For Laughs Festival. Insightful, crass and just plain hilarious, Mike has recently moved to the Mile High City and we couldn't be happier to have him.

Comedy is at its best when it isn't scared to tell the truth. So let's stop pretending that the world is nice and fair, and help us celebrate each other by pointing out our differences and similarities that make us all amazing and utterly stupid.

Thick Skin may not be for everybody, but everyone should see it!

"Ian Abramson (Stand-Up) is from Moreno Valley, California, where he learned to walk, read, and drive, but not in that order. His stand-up is a mix of precise wordplay, longer emotionally absurd jokes, and larger conceptual pieces. In 2014 Chicago Magazine named Ian “Best Experimental Comedian” and also listed him in a separate article as one of the “16 Comedians You Should See This Fall.” In 2015 Ian was LA Weekly’s Best Up-and-Coming Comedian and a New Face for the world renowned Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, Canada. Ian Abramson is a regular contributor to The Onion and also the creator and host of the buzzed-about Comedy Central digital show 7 Minutes in Purgatory where comedians perform to a camera in one room while the audience watches in another room. He was also a creative consultant for Funny or Die’s digital series Our Fascinating Planet starring Demetri Martin. Ian has appeared on CONAN, SeeSo’s The Comedy Show Show, Hulu’s Coming to the Stage and performed at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Pemberton Music Festival in Canada, SXSW and Moontower Comedy Festival in Austin, New York Comedy Festival, San Francisco Sketchfest, Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, The Onion/A.V. Club festival in Chicago and Funny or Die’s Oddball Festival. Recent TV credits include appearances on History Channel’s Join or Die and on ABC’s The Middle.

Leading the Blind— Podcast

Buy your tickets or badges today.

  • Roxxy Haze— Stand-Up

    Stafford, TX

    Comedian and storyteller Roxxy Haze can only be described as what happens when you blend pseudo intellectualism with a raunchy Walt Disney fantasy. Haze has been performing for 5 years and has developed her own style through brash and energetic style of geeky observational comedy.

  • Marcus Givan— Stand-Up

    Putnam Valley, NY

    Marcus Givan is a stand-up comedian born and raised in New York who started into comedy after working security at a comedy club in San Diego, California. His act relies heavily on observational comedy and story-telling, and though only a few years in, he’s been fortunate to have featured on several festivals across the country

  • Gara Lonning— Stand-Up

    New York City, NY

    Gara Lonning is the new voice that's here to show you that maybe not all millennials are COMPLETELY out of touch with reality. Join her and her unpredictable comedy as she weaves you in and out of wacky stories ranging anywhere from her closeted, midwestern adolescence to the struggle of constantly getting called "little buddy" by random people on the street. As we millennials say, "It's gonna be lit!"

  • Gabe Stoddard— Stand-Up

    Brooklyn, NY

    Gabe Stoddard is a Brazilian-American stand up comedian from Boston, MA now residing in New York City. With a casual stage presence and fresh perspective, Gabe is quick to charm audiences with a mixture of acerbic wit and increasingly foolish ideas about his family, lovers, and many enemies. You can catch him at bars, clubs, and colleges throughout New York and New England.

  • Austin Smartt— Stand-Up

    Austin, TX

    Bringing a devilish confidence to the stage, Austin Smartt is a native Texan and trans woman whose incisive comedy tinkers with subjects on the border of right and wrong. Austin uses her small town charm to guide the audience into a liminal space where they feel comfortable to temporarily tip-toe over the blurred lines of what is and isn't acceptable to laugh at.

Speechless (Out of Bounds)

Buy your tickets or a badge today.

"Speechless Live — Improv
Presentation Is Everything. There are 350 PowerPoint presentations given every second around the world. But none quite like this. In this show that Wall Street Journal calls "Comedic gold" and about which Newsweek says "PowerPoint may never be the same" Speechless puts entertainers, entrepreneurs, and audience members on the spot with nothing more than a stage, a microphone and a PowerPoint deck full of images that they've never seen. A spinning wheel determines at random what kind of talk they have to give - it can be a TED Talk, a new app being launched, a quarterly report, even a wedding toast - and then our presenters attempt to leave the audience Speechless.

Starring:
Joey Neugart
Shannon Stott
Kareem Badr
Arielle Norman
Ky Krebs"
