Rising Comedy Star CP (Empire)
Buy Tickets COMP - $7.50 $15
You know you've hit the big time when people don't even have to use your full name to refer to you. Comedian Chris Powell might have been born "Christopher," but today he's known on comedy stages around the country as CP. And in the last couple years he's definitely earned those initials. He nabbed the role of L'il Prince on the smash TV series Empire, killed his set at Russell Simmons' all-new All Def Comedy, and even wrote and starred in a few episodes of Comedy Central's hysterical Detroiters. CP might just be the next big thing in comedy, and you can catch him live when he hits the stage at the Denver Improv to perform his signature style of high-energy stand-up.

Fast & Funny Comedy Competition
Buy Tickets $10 $20
ComedySportz, the ingenious improv show that pits two teams of quick-witted performers against each other in a balls-to-the-wall battle for comedy supremacy, has been around for 30 years -- which is long enough for it to have its own abbreviation (CSz) and tons of famous alumni, including Wayne Brady (Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Let's Make A Deal) and Jason Sudeikis (SNL, Horrible Bosses). Now coming to the Avenue Theater in the Mile-High City, it works like this -- you and your fellow audience members provide suggestions to each squad, who throw down by coming up with scenes, bits and songs on the spot. Each show includes up to a dozen different improv games, out of a list of more than 100. A referee oversees the action, calling fouls (groan-worthy puns'll get you a flag) and keeping score. Yep, there are points and everything -- but the power to bestow winners and losers is ultimately in your hands. It's no laughing matter, except for the fact that it definitely is.

Then Colorado's own uilleann piper Dirk Mewes climbs aboard for The Brendan Voyage by living Irish composer Shaun Davey. (If you're asking what the fugue uilleann pipes are, they're basically the rare Irish version of bagpipes.)
