Funny Business

February 1999

With two full-time comedy clubs, and the re-opening of the former George McKelvey's Comedy Club on Hampden Avenue, Denver will have more comedy clubs than just about any city in America, even former comedy hotbeds such as San Francisco.

Name almost any city as big (or bigger) than Denver and the support for its local comedy clubs doesn't match Denver's. Atlanta, Phoenix, St. Louis, and Miami all had at least three comedy clubs in the early '90s. Tody only Miami has two (three, if you count the baseball stadium where the first-to-worst Florida Marlins Play).
