EAGLE, Colorado ” ‘Comedy Night at the Bowlmor’ returns to The Bowlmor Cafe and Lounge, located in The Back Bowl in Eagle, Colorado, Thursday at 8 pm with the off-the-wall physical humor of Bryan Kellen.

This is a return engagement for Kellen, who is a regular at the Comedy Works in Denver. He has been anointed “one of the funniest up-and-coming comics in America” by the National Comedy Hall of Fame and one of the country’s “Top 100 Comedians” by Entertainment Business Journal. Kellen is also a former winner of the Las Vegas Comedy Festival and the Laugh Across America series.

Opening for Kellen will be local comedian Chris Atencio. Based out of Denver, Atencio has opened for comedy greats Jamie Foxx, Brett Butler and Tommy Chong. Atencio, whose brother was a long time member of the Vail Fire Department, was also a member of Vail’s renowned Precision Lawn Chair Demonstration Team.

According to General Manager Doug Cahill, The Comedy Night at the Bowlmor series has been seeing record turnout for recent shows, which he attributes to the affordable ticket price.

“Where else can you get this caliber of professional entertainment so inexpensively?” he said. “Especially when you compare it to a simple night at the movies. Besides, everybody loves live comedy … there’s nothing like it, really.”
