Glassworks Improv with special guest Governor Jack
Apr 14 @ 9:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Glassworks Improv with special guest Governor Jack

Glassworks returns to Denver as a part of their fifth national tour, which will bring them to the Phoenix Improv Festival and through the deep south. Other stops include Albuquerque, San Antonio, Austin, New Orleans and St. Louis.

In the first act, one of the Glassworks members will join the Governor Jack gang and be interviewed for an episode of Governor Jack Watches You Sleep. The second act will be the whole Glassworks crew closing out the show with a full set. You won’t want to miss this!

Glassworks consists of Alex Raney, Elliot Heinz and Mack Hastings. Like the best bands and improv groups, Glassworks brings both a frantic energy and a focused poise to every performance. Like Philip Glass (their namesake), they can find energy and new life in repetition and in variation. Glassworks is three hungry young artists on the search for honesty, and the fun that they have on stage is palpable. Join them as they explore the absurd, yet brutal reality of life that surrounds us.

Governor Jack is one of the longest running and most celebrated improv comedy groups in Denver, Colorado. (Named Denver’s Best Improv Troupe by Westword Magazine – 2014 and Best Improv Troupe at the Colorado Improv Awards 2014). The group was thrice selected to perform at the Del Close Marathon (NYC) and were profiled in the Upright Citizens Brigade’s feature length documentary. They have been closing night performers at the Denver Improv Festival and have performed at the Chicago Improv Festival, Out Of Bounds Comedy Festival, Detroit Improv Festival, Omaha Improv Festival, SLC Comedy Carnivale and Colorado Improv Festival.
