EAGLE — Comedy Night at the Bowlmor returns to The Back Bowl in Eagle today at 8:30 p.m., when comedian Brent Gill makes his debut comedy series appearance.

As a regular headliner at both Comedy Works Denver locations, Gill has entrenched himself as a mainstay in the city’s extremely deep live-comedy culture. Plying an onstage presence that exudes charisma and energy, he has a gift for communicating the many absurdities he observes as he stumbles awkwardly through daily life.

This talent — along with plenty of effort at honing his craft — has not gone unnoticed. Both Denver’s Westword and The Denver Post have recognized Gill as one of Denver’s top comedic talents, with Westword calling him “a paragon of Denver comedy.”

In the Top 10 Comedy Shows

Gill has also produces several comedy shows, both live and for television. His “Boulder Comedy Show” was recognized as one of the Top 10 Comedy Shows of 2015 and The Best of Boulder 2016. He also created the critically acclaimed “In-Faux-Mation” show, in which he hosts other comic talents from around the region to contribute their own twisted observations and commentary regarding today’s headlines, using a mix of standup, satire and improv. The show has successfully toured across the country and Canada.

When not headlining or opening for national acts at the Comedy Works, Gill has become an in-demand presence at many top comedy showcases and festivals, such as the High Plains Comedy Festival and the Telluride Blues and Brews Festival.

Opening this summer edition of Comedy Night at The Bowlmor is Los Angeles girl Janae Burris. She’s performed standup and improv comedy for more than a decade. With chops that include acting and improv with some of the top performing arts groups in Southern California, Burris is now tearing it up at many of the top clubs in the Denver region. This is also her first appearance at The Back Bowl.
