The local comedy scene in Denver has exploded over the last few years, like Seattle and those grunge bands in the 90s. The GRAWLIX  guys (Adam Cayton-Holland, Ben Roy & Andrew Orvedahl)  are a big driving force behind the scene’s rise with their monthly show & numerous bookings around the city.  The fellas are putting on a two-day, multi-venue comedy showcase next month High Plains Comedy Festival (HPCF). The fest will showcase the ridiculous amount of local talent as well as a plethora of nationally-touring comics such as eggie Watts, Kyle Kinane, Rory Scovel, Kurt Branholer, Matt Braugner and Howard Kremer to name just a few.

Fans at the UMS  are getting a sweet comedy  teaser  on Saturday July 20th @ The Hornet (1st & Broadway) from 11pm – 1am. If it’s anything like last year’s comedy showcase at the Mayan during UMS 2012 then folks will be in for a treat.

Here’s the lineup of comics performing at the UMS showcase:
