While the Labor Day holiday has strayed from its collectivist roots, it’s still possible to enjoy some of the finest entertainment that Denver has to offer on proletarian wages. Thrifty locals can welcome the weekend at First Friday delights and midnight-movie screenings, guffaw and debauch at a comedy drinking game on Saturday, pet farm animals or boogie to cumbia on Sunday, and spend their Monday off at a burlesque birthday party. Admission to any of the ten events listed below is less than ten dollars, and six of them are free. Whether here in Denver or farther afield on the Front Range, an abundance of good times awaits Coloradans this weekend.
Designated Drunkard: A Comedy Drinking Game
Saturday, September 2, 7 p.m.
El Charrito‘s Comedy RoomRoom
Comedy and alcohol have always shared an enduring but volatile symbiosis, but few shows court boozy overindulgence like Designated Drunkard: A Comedy Drinking Game. A local franchise of a showcase format that originated in New Orleans — where dignified day drinking is a resident’s birthright — Designated Drunkard turns the foibles, obsessions and tics of local and traveling standups into prompts for the audience to take a drink. Co-hosts Caitie Hannan and Westword‘s own Byron Graham not only produce and emcee the show, but one of them will be sitting on stage in the titular role, leading the audience in shot challenges and rotating roles each month for the sake of their livers. Presented in partnership with Sexpot Comedy, September’s show features local mirth merchants Georgia Rae, Patrick Scott and Zac Maas along with the well-traveled Reid Clark and Chicago’s Basil Faraj opening for Denver Comedy Champion Nathan Lund. Visit the Sexpot Comedy calendar to learn more, and get tickets, $5, from Nightout.
