Comedy clubs miss audiences

As with music, theater and other forms of art and entertainment hurting from lack of stages, 2020 initially promises record year of audience and revenue growth for LIVE Comedy in City filled with young, moneyed stand - Up fans. But coronavirus brought that to grinding halt, cutting short plans for events like High Plains Comedy Festival, which was set to return in September. I was still tentative about going back to shows, say Denver comic and booker Kronberg, whose Denver Comedy Lounge had only debuted in October and was already seeing pack houses in Its RiNo - area space behind Colorado Sake Co. But I go to Safeway on regular basis and do all of things, so we think, should we try it? Key for Kronberg, as well as Denver Comedy founder Anthony Kapfer and Colorado Sake Co. Owner, William Stewart, Was Making Comics Feel Safe. Venue Is Known For Being Dog - Friendly, For Example, And Balancing That Sense Of Casual Accessibility With Strict Health Mandates Has Been Tricky. It turned out had enough microphones to be able to give every comic their own, Kronberg say. Some of these people being asked to do shows still live with their parents, and we want to put anyone at risk. Denver Comedy Lounge also put its usual practices of flying out - of - state comics to Denver and putting them up at downtown hotels on hold in favor of - area headliners. Past Three Weeks Of Shows Since Reopening Have Seen Cordial, Respectful Audiences Seated At Two - And Four - Top Tables That Are Socially Distanced Outside, Kronberg Say. Most shows between 25 and 30 people. Venue is charging {matheq}17.50-{endmatheq} 20 per person, price that's slightly higher than before pandemic hit. Live comedy has value, Kronberg say, performers need to get paid. People have been willing to participate in that keep their favorite restaurants alive, he say. Why not comedy? Constantly Changing Nature Of Restrictions And Lockdowns Means Every Showcase Could Get Shut Down Again In Matter Of Hours, Bookers And Comics Admit. Some, such as Wide Right Co - owner Meghan DePonceau, have taken to social media to explain their actions to community they once court. We bought & opened this bar for community, We doubled down on Denver and have put our blood, sweat & tears into it full force every day since we bought it on October 7 and will continue to do so, write DePonceau, who also stand - Up, on Facebook. But we will not get same community that we invest in sick as result of our need for business. No matter results of this current experiment, comics will continue to hone their skills on podcasts and livestreamed showcases until fully public shows can resume. But culture of LIVE Comedy, as addictive to some audience members as it is to comics on stage, may never be same.
