Dong Gong Show – Karaoke Competition
Mar 6 @ 9:00 pm – Mar 7 @ 2:00 am
Dong Gong Show - Karaoke Competition

We had SO much fun at the Thanksgiving version of the Dong Gong Show, we decided to do another!!

Our hosts for the evening are CJ and Tater! They’ve been collecting the BEST duck jokes on the planet, so big round of interweb applause for our fearless MC’s!

And now, the JUDGES!!!

The Inappropriate Lifeguard
Mistress Mamba (making her first DGS appearance!)

For those unfamiliar with the Dong Gong Show, here’s a break-down. We’ve taken karaoke to the next level by integrating our favorite 70’s “talent show” The Gong Show. Three judges will critique the evening’s karaoke performances and if they feel it’s necessary, they will gong any performance at any time by striking a gong with a dong.

While the performance will be stopped at that time, judges will still explain themselves. All performances will receive a score. The top 3 performances of the evening will compete in the championship round. The overall winner will win a prize. Must be present for the championship round to win.

Show starts at 9pm. Championship round to start around 12:30ish…or so. The Judges promise to BRING IT this time around, so PREPARE FOR THE DONG(gong)!!!

Alvin Williams with Heather Turman – Standup Comedy
Mar 13 @ 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Alvin Williams with Heather Turman - Standup Comedy

It’s hard to be likable when you’re being brutally honest, but Alvin Williams has found a way, and he’ll show you for a small fee.

From the little things in life that truly matter, to the big issues that shouldn’t matter at all, Williams finds the funny in all the places you forgot to look. Whether it’s celebrities, politics, relationships, sports, family, or random tv commercials, you won’t know which direction he’s headed next, you’ll just be glad you took the ride with him.

Born in Chicago, IL, Alvin shared his childhood between Illinois, Tennessee, Colorado, Oregon, Louisiana, and Idaho (yes, Idaho), making him a “native son” in many of his performance destinations. Growing up he learned to rapidly adapt to his ever-changing environment by turning strangers into friends through laughter, a skill that is noticeably on display as soon as he hits the stage. He has wasted no time making his presence felt on both the national and international comedy circuit with a non-stop tour schedule that has spanned the entire United States along with Canada, Mexico, and Central America to his credit. In 2008 he hosted the inaugural Mile High Comedy Festival in Denver, CO. Later that year he became the recurring host of the Shades of Black Show, a multi-cultural talent showcase that tours college campuses across the U.S. In 2009, he was invited to perform at the Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival in Asheville, NC, and in 2012 he headlined the Bob 93.7 FM Comedy Festival in Reno, NV.

Aside from live performances, Alvin can be seen in a variety of national network television appearances, including commercials for Big Brother Big Sister, Columbia Bank, and Powerball MegaMillions. Most recently he performed on the new tv series Comedy Unfiltered on NuvoTV as well as the shows Comedy Brew and Quicklaffs on Hulu.com, and is a 5-time Featured Comic on the viral video network Comedy Time TV.

Glassworks Improv
Apr 14 @ 9:30 pm – 10:30 pm
Glassworks Improv

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.

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.
