Jess & Bent [Improv Comedy]

Two queer teams, one queer as heck show!

Join host Jessica Austgen and a rotating roster of funny friends for an evening of 2-person improv. Each new guest receives inspiration from a line of poetry left by the guest before them, leading to an evening of belly-laughs, book-nerdery and big words. Even better, this longform improv set will be audio-recorded, so it can live on forever in podcast form. Which of one of Denver’s top improvisers will be joining Jess each month? Come find out!

Bent is an all-LGBTQ+ improv ensemble that has been performing regularly in Denver theaters since 2016. What started as a random collection of improvisers quickly turned into a family, and Bent prides themselves on showcasing authentic relationships and genuine chemistry. This cast loves the heck out of each other, and they love to play off of personal stories and quirks to make scenes that much more authentic and hilarious. Each member of the team has a unique story and approach and it is their differences that make them fun. While Bent is categorically NOT straight, our comedy is universal.

We know that many folks are struggling financially so we wanted to offer sliding prices on our tickets for these events. We have a $2 ticket for those who couldn’t afford to come otherwise. A $5 dollar ticket for those who can afford a little more. And our full price ticket which goes to support the theater and our community.

We have general admission seating, so all tickets can sit in any seat on a first come first serve basis. Also as long as there are empty seats in the next show, your ticket will get you entry into that show at no additional cost.
