Back Bowl hosts adult comedy show in Eagle Saturday

EAGLE - Comedy Night at the Bowlmor returns to The Bowlmor Cafe and Lounge, located in The Back Bowl in Eagle, on Saturday at 8:30 p.m. with the reprise performance of comedian Ben Roy.

Since his last sell-out appearance at the Back Bowl just over year ago, Roy has gone from opener to an in-demand headliner. If his own sold-out shows at Denver's popular Comedy Works is any indication, he's clearly one of Denver's fastest rising stars. The Maine native captivated the local comedy scene with his unique blend of rant, sarcastic, observational and high-energy humor.

Roy has been a finalist in several local and national competitions, performing at the Boston Comedy Festival, The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, The Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival, The MTV Comedy Showcase, and most recently The Just for Laughs Montreal Comedy Festival. Ben currently resides in Colorado and headlines several clubs nationally, including the world famous Denver Comedy Works.

Entering his performance last year at the Back Bowl, owner Joe Gonzalez was more than a little anxious about his first foray into the more adult realm of comedy.

"We had reached out to a wide variety of audiences with our acts over the years, but Ben's show was definitely not for the faint of heart," he said.

It turns out, audiences were more than ready and Roy's show was an unequivocal success. He played to standing-room-only house that evening.

"Ben has garnered an amazing following in Denver," Gonzalez continued. "His delivery takes on an edge, but his humor is so spot-on that the laughs just seem to follow."

Opening for Roy will be rising star Chris Carpentier. As a regular opener at the Comedy Works, Carpentier took second place in the club's "New Faces" competition. The last couple of years have seen him taking his show on the road, garnering a solid reputation for bringing a relaxed and infectiously silly style to the stage.

Tickets are on sale now for $12 in advance and $15 on the day of the show. Groups can take advantage of special pricing for groups of 8 or more. Tickets can be purchased in person at The Back Bowl, or by phone with a credit card.
