Denver, We Set A Record!
Phew, it was hot yesterday wasn’t it? I didn’t really get to experience the 100 degree weather much yesterday – thank goodness – but the brief time I was out of my air conditioning haven, I was ready to crawl back into the cold.
To escape this heat, a few of us headed down to the Denver Performing Arts Center, the Garner Galleria Theatre, to be exact. We saw the preview performance of The Second City’s “How I Lost My Denverginity”. The show was part Improv and skit’s that often reflected life in Denver. The cast were all very unique in their characters and routines, which made the show even more entertaining. They involved the audience by asking for words or phrases to base their improve skits on, which to me, were remarkable! How they can perform ‘on the spot’ off one word is very engaging. Of course, crazy silly words are given to them and they manage to make a coherent skit out of it.
As this was the ‘Preview’, they asked for people to stay after the show for another audience involved Improv set. The cast announced that anything they performed tonight may be used in their other shows, if it turned out well. The cast improv’ed off things like “I ain’t buying that” and “I’m a Thai European American”. Comical routines at their best! They asked me and a friend, with me, for our initials and then for words that started with our initials, “B” and “M”. The most obvious, “Bowel Movement”, the cast passed on and went with “Bisexual Minority”. To me, despite having such strange things to act off, they did a fabulous job. Of course, the reasonably priced drinks, helped!
So, if you need an evening of fun and laughter, I would recommend you check out The Second City’s “How I Lost My Denverginity”. Tickets are $20 and drinks are reasonably priced (which makes it all the more easier to knock ’em back).
