BY BYRON GRAHAM OF DENVER WESTWORD

The fireworks may be over, but Denver’s creative community has plenty of delights in store for adventurous and thrifty locals that will light up their days and nights. Craft markets, literary bloodsport, cultural festivals and croquet represent just a few of the appealing entertainment options in store for the week ahead. Cash-strapped Coloradans needn’t fret about money, either, as each of the events listed below can be enjoyed for $10 or under.

 

Guest List Comedy Album Recording
Friday, July 7, 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.
The Bakery Arts Warehouse
$10

Last July, local comedian Ben Bryant took a big gamble on a new venture, a monthly standup and sketch-comedy showcase called Guest List at the Bakery Arts Warehouse, a DIY-friendly venue that had never hosted comedy before. Investing large sums of time and money (scarce resources for comedians) into renting the space, curating the lineups and attracting a crowd, Bryant weathered the dizzying highs and dispiriting lows of producing a comedy show, persisting until he reached the milestone of a one-year anniversary. To celebrate, he’s inviting forty different local comics (including Westword contributor Byron Graham) to perform streamlined three-minute sets and compiling the results into an album. Essentially a mixtape of some of Denver’s best comedians circa 2017, the recording is divided into two different shows, with one beginning at 8 p.m. and another at 10 p.m. on Friday, July 7. Visit Guest List’s Facebook event page to learn more, and follow the Eventbrite link to buy tickets, which cost $10.
