Comedy Works has been Denver's premier destination for the very best in stand-up comedy since 1981. As one of the nation's true comedy landmarks, we routinely attract the country's top comedians. We also enjoy a strong reputation for developing new acts and fostering a talented base of local comedians. Many of our homegrown acts have become major forces in the national comedy scene, appearing on Comedy Central, The Tonight Show, Craig Ferguson, and Last Comic Standing, which our very own Josh Blue won.

I expected it to be better. Firstly, the show was much shorter than expected, which alone is disappointing. I have seen 2 other stand-up comedy shows before, both in much smaller towns so I figured that a comedy show in Denver would be hilarious in...More

We went on a Thursday evening and had a great time. They serve food and drink quickly and with a friendly attitude. The atmosphere is fun and of course we laughed and laughed. Great adult entertainment.

The comedians were OUTSTANDING. Hippy man was our favorite, even though he was the opener. That being said -The staff all seems like they're being forced to be there. No one is really overly friendly and the guys who did the seating were pushing people...More

Impossible to sit comfortably, packed in like sardines. Miserable experience. My wife had to sit in front of me rather than beside me so we didn't even enjoy the show together. The aisle was behind my chair and the waitress constantly pushed on my chair...More
