Every weekend is a good weekend to get out of town in Colorado, but Labor Day offers even more excuses to pack up your bags and hit the road. There’s plenty to do in the mountains this weekend, but don’t worry if you’re stuck in Denver; between concerts (some free!), food festivals and book readings, you’ll have plenty to do this week.
Andy Haynes is a dynamic standup comedian known for his appearances on Conan, Last Comic Standing and Comedy Central’s The Half Hour. Haynes is also known for his Midnight Run comedy showcase, which gets comedians unreasonably stoned and then lets them sort through the weirdness on stage. A natural fit for the Sexpot Comedy brand, Haynes is in town this week to headline a show on Friday, September 1, that will also include local comics Emily Zeek, D. Kelly and Mike Stanley; the fun starts at 7 p.m. at Syntax Physic Opera, 554 South Broadway. Haynes and Sexpot will also bring the Midnight Run showcase to an appreciative and equally stoned Denver audience at the Bug Theatre, 3654 Navajo Street, at 8 p.m. on Saturday, September 2. Visit sexpotcomedy.com to learn more. Tickets for the Syntax show, $7, are available via Nightout; Midnight Run tickets are $10 at the door.
