Lori Callahan returns to Eagle for Comedy Night

Daily staff report
Eagle, CO Colroado
Special to the DailyWhen comedian Lori Callahan performed last at The Back Bowl in Eagle, Colorado, it was standing room only, said Back Bowl General Manager Doug Cahill.

EAGLE, Colorado ” Comedy Night at the Bowlmor returns to The Back Bowl in Eagle, Colorado Thursday at 8 p.m., with the reprise engagement of Comedy Works headliner, Lori Callahan.

Callahan, who opened the Comedy Night series over two years ago, is considered one of the funniest female headline comedians working today. She has appeared on comedy specials on Showtime, Comedy Central and has won an Emmy Award for her work with ESPN’s the “Lighter Side of Sports.” In addition to headlining at comedy clubs throughout the country, Callahan has appeared on stage as an opener for first tier comics like Jeff Foxworthy, Paula Poundstone, Richard Belzer and Carrot Top.

Back Bowl general manager Doug Cahill expects a large turnout.

“The last time Lori was in town it was standing room only,” Cahill said. “We were amazed at the number of people that remembered her from our opening show a full year before. We’ve tried to book her more often, but she’s probably one of the most difficult acts to get because of her reputation and her touring schedule.”

Opening for Callahan will be comedian J. Marc. His clever commentary, slick delivery, and charisma have marked him as one of the fastest rising acts at Denver’s Comedy Works. His broad appeal has enabled him to develop a strong rapport with audiences of all ages and diverse backgrounds.
