If you haven’t noticed, the local comedy scene is growing by leaps and bounds, by people who have the same mindset as the bloggers in this network. Bloggers are all about the doing things and going on new adventures that traditional businesses in Fort Collins businesses might not take a risk on. The local bloggers and stand-up comedians in this town are starting with nothing, and trying to make something pretty cool from it. And while it’s incredibly difficult to do in these parts, we still do it because we love it, we enjoy the challenge, and seeing what we can make from it.
So, we’re teaming up, and with our grassroots, bootstrapping powers combined, we’re hosting Stand-Up Fort Collins – a night of showcasing the funniest comedians in Fort Collins. And the cherry on top? Our headliner is nationally touring comedian, Spencer James, winner of the 2014 World Series of Comedy in Vegas. NO JOKE.
We’re going all-in with two back-to-back shows at the Downtown Artery. There’s one at 7pm, and another at 9pm. Each show will have a different lineup of comedians with Spencer headlining both. I’ll be there if you want to chat about food and drink happenings from Feasting Fort Collins, or I will be more than happy to talk your ear off about the latest and greatest trail adventures on Fresh Air Fort Collins. Some of the other bloggers will be there too!
You can buy your tickets in advance from the Artery for $10 per show. If you’re a procrastinator and wait to buy them at the door, you’ll get in for $15 per show.
A BIG thanks to the Downtown Artery for working with us on hosting these shows, and for our corporate sponsors Noble, Inc for making it possible to cover the event expenses so that people get paid for their work. We chose to work with the Artery because of their mission of believing that artists should be able to make a living in Fort Collins. And we’re down with not being starving artists.
