EAGLE, Colorado – Lori Callahan returns to the stage at the Bowlmor Lounge at the Back Bowl in Eagle Saturday for Comedy Night at the Bowlmor.The longest running live comedy series in the Valley is familiar territory to Callahan who headlined the first show three years ago. Callahan is considered one of the funniest female headline comedians working today. She is also one of the most tenured acts still headlining at Denver’s Comedy Works and regularly sells out venues throughout the region.In addition to appearances at comedy clubs throughout the country, Callahan has worked the stage as an opener for first tier comics like Jeff Foxworthy, Paula Poundstone, Richard Belzer and Carrot Top, while her considerable talents have led her to featured TV appearances on Showtime, Comedy Central and she won an Emmy Award for her work with ESPN’s the ‘Lighter Side of Sports’.”Her last two shows were standing room only,” said Back Bowl owner and general manager Joe Gonzalez. “People remember her and make a point of getting out to see her. She quickly develops an uncanny rapport with the crowd…that she’s really just one of us and she has a knack for telling stories we can all relate to.”Opening for Callahan is another Comedy Works regular, Troy Walker. He has assumed the role of both opener and headliner, and has twice won the iconic club’s “New Faces of Comedy” contest.Tickets for comedy night are on sale now for $12 in advance and $15 on the day of the show. Group rates are also available. For this month’s show, the Back Bowl is offering a “Dine & Laff” dinner special with select entrees and the comedy show for $21.95.
