EAGLE – Comedy Night at the Bowlmor returns to The Back Bowl in Eagle with two hilarious acts on Saturday starting at 8 p.m.

Making a reprise appearance on the Bowlmor stage will be popular Denver comic and award-winning sports journalist Sam Adams. Adams puts a new twist on the all-too-familiar vagaries of daily life that will leave you in fits of laughter. The best part is that he lives by the axiom that comedy doesn’t have to be foul to be funny, making this a great show for everyone to enjoy.

In the best comedic tradition, his clean and incisive act led one reviewer to say, “He brings down the house with a string of well-delivered lines that are notable for their lack of profanity, scatological or sexual references.”’ Smooth, clever, clean and colorful are words that are often used to describe his act. Adams is a past winner of the Great American Comedy Festival, as well as other comedy competitions held throughout the region.

Adams is currently one of the top local headliners at Denver’s Comedy Works, as well as clubs throughout the region, and has opened for national acts such as Frank Caliendo, Kevin Nealon, Keenan Ivory Wayans and David Letterman. He has also shared stages as a leadoff and featured act for touring musical artists including legendary jazzmen David Sanborn and Al Jarreau. Adams has performed on some of the biggest stages in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Boston and New York, as well as Red Rocks and the Paramount Theater in Denver.

Locals may also recognize Adams from his work with The Denver Post or from national appearances on ESPN, Fox Sports and NFL Network. In 2003, he received the Print Journalist of the Year award from the Colorado Association of Black Journalists.

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley.

David Rodriguez will open the evening. Originally from Fort Collins, Rodriguez recently won Denver Comedy Works’ 19th annual New Faces Competition and was a finalist for several other accolades in the 2015 Denver Comedy Awards, including Favorite Newcomer and Comic to Watch in 2016. His comedic style is a mix of animated storytelling and acerbic insights into being a responsible young parent in a generation where growing up is generally frowned upon.
