Dying Alone Standup Comedy Tour**
Aug 7 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Dying Alone Standup Comedy Tour**

The “Dying Alone Standup Comedy Tour” promises to be an amazing experience! Full of self realization, unfulfilled fantasies, and love, this will be a show that is not to be missed!

John Campanelli. He’s awesome! Opens for Dane Cook, he’s been on Reelz Channel, Playboy Radio, Sirius, and he’s a regular here in LA at the Laugh Factory, as well as tours the country.

Peter Sers is a quadruple threat! With initial ambitions of being a Pop Star, he was universally rejected by such shows as American Idol, Making the Band, and Star Search. He finally made his professional TV singing debut in 2001 on the MTV show Say What Karaoke. He has been a back up dancer on numerous tours, as well as a talented actor. Ironically, his first acting role was as a Boyband Member on the MTV show Homewreckers. His first major role was on the hit TV show Law and Order LA in 2011. He also made his big screen debut in 2013 in the movie Gentleman Explorers. His comedy is a high energy mix of stories about dating, being Mexican, being a pop star reject, and everything in between. His on stage energy is infectious, and memorable. He has performed across the country in various comedy clubs, and festivals, as well as Hollywood’s top clubs. With a pilot in the works, 2014 looks to be an exciting year!

Brock Wilbur Standup
Sep 20 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Brock Wilbur Standup

Brock Wilbur is a 6’7? twenty-something white male from Los Angeles trying his best not to be part of the problem. He was raised in Kansas and drank himself to death in Chicago indie bands, so the odds aren’t in his favor. On September 20th, he will be taping his third one-hour comedy special at Voodoo Comedy Playhouse in Denver, Colorado. Opening act for the special will be follow LA comic and podcast co-host Joe Starr, who will be recording the follow-up to his award winning debut album “Heroic Effort”.

We recommend Brock Wilbur if you’ve ever experienced the following symptoms:
- Anxiety from having too many ideas in your brain
- Delusions of pop-culture superiority
- Breaking someone’s heart to learn how it works
- Recurring thoughts of escapism
- Fear of a darkness that dwells inside you
- Book reading

If you believe you are a good candidate for Brock Wilbur, we prescribe his one-hour comedy specials “Crime Travel” (named one of Pandora Radio’s Top Comedy Albums of 2013) and 28 Years Later , which are both available through Rooftop Comedy. Or the feature film “Your Friends Close” and or the books “Exquisite Corpse” and “FILMPOCALYPSE!”

Wilbur has appeared on Comedy Central, NPR, NBC, Adult Swim, BitesizeTV, Huffington Post, Hopeless Records, 100% Wrong, Live Through This, Joe Moses Showses, various national commercials, and a guest arc as the bad guy in the award winning Top Cow Comics series “A Voice In The Dark.” In the Los Angeles area he produces bad-ass shows, the weekly BROCK PARTY podcast, the Ready! SET Art!!! web-series, and previously booked comedy for the prestigious Hollywood Fringe Festival.

“Wilbur is a comedian that will quickly enrapture audiences with quirky and original material, appealing to multiple tastes in nerdiness and pop-culture alike… Make no mistake; the material is flat out funny.” -Nate Rankin, America’s Comedy

“Wilbur soars with impressive comic effects. Highly recommended.” -Nathan Rabin, The Dissolve

“Pop-culture obsessed comedian Brock Wilbur taped Crime Travel on video inside a video store, an effect that makes it look as if the special was filmed deep inside the dystopian universe of Videodrome.” -Playboy

“Consider Brock your new obsession.” -Comedy Cake

“Trust me, this dude is going places, take this chance to say you knew him when.” -Joanna Robinson, Pajiba“BROCK IS LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE A STALWART COMBINATION OF BEING BOTH HILARIOUS, ERUDITE, AND PROLIFIC.” -Film Crit Hulk, Bad-Ass Digest

An Evening Of Shitty Magic
Sep 30 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
An Evening Of Shitty Magic

Join us on September 30th at the Voodoo Comedy Playhouse for something very different—“An Evening of Shitty Magic.” Who knows what trick our magician will fumble and destroy next? Who knows what dirty sock or monster he’ll pull out of his hat from another dimension?!! Who knows if he’ll be able to reattach the limbs of his beautiful assistant? Mystery, sorcery, and comedy collide in this show that the Magic Castle has called “an abomination; a pure mockery of all we hold sacred.”

Denver Actors Fund KARAOKE!
Oct 11 @ 10:00 pm – 11:45 pm
Denver Actors Fund KARAOKE!

It’s our usual karaoke late-night – with a twist – when it’s a Denver Actors Fund night at Voodoo. Put your name and a song in the jar, like usual. Or … put someone ELSE’s name in the jar. You can select from a wide list of accomplished (and fearless) singers from the Denver theatre community and (for $10), they will sing whatever song you want to hear … so it might actually be good! It’s an evening of silliness, terrific talent and a great cause. The Denver Actors Fund provides financial and good-neighborly assistance when members of the local theatre community find themselves in sudden situational medical need. Good deeds like errand-running, meals, construction, rides and company. You’ll be in good company if you come on in for an evening of karaoke night quite like you’ve ever seen it before. Help those performers who enrich our lives every day, but often have the least in terms of salary and health benefits.
