Steamboat Comedy’s Winter Winter Stand-up Series w/Mike Stanley
Friday, March 10, and Saturday, March 11, 7-9 p.m.
Schmiggity’s, 821 Lincoln Ave., Steamboat Springs
Mike Stanley makes his second Steamboat appearance. Wry, witty, cunning and crass. Stanley is all these things, but none, when put on paper, quite manage to serve the justice dealt by Stanley onstage. Yeah, he’s pretty hilarious, but more than just coarse anecdotes about life and sex, there’s an enviable amount of heart and warmth behind Stanley’s humor. Given his penchant toward brutal honesty, spiced up with a healthy dose of insatiable wit, it’s not difficult to see why Stanley was named “Best Chicago Stand-up Comedian” in a Peoples Choice poll done by the Chicago Reader and “Best Detroit Comedian” by HOUR Magazine. Originally hailing from Detroit, and after spending a decade honing his craft in the Windy City of Chicago, Mike tours constantly, both domestically and internationally.

Wolf Reintroduction One Voice: Community Monologues
Saturday, March 11, 7-8 p.m., and Sunday, March 12, 10-11 a.m.
Steamboat Creates, 1001 13th St., Steamboat Springs
To further the conversation of wolf reintroduction, Empathy Theatre Projects will put on this show to feature true stories and thoughtful conversation about the pros and cons of wolf reintroduction. This Empathy Theatre Project production, in partnership with Endangered Species Coalition, explores the issue of Wolf Reintroduction in Colorado, and was originally performed at the Firehouse Art Gallery in Longmont. For this show, we interviewed many stakeholders on the issue of wolf reintroduction in our state — from biologists, to ranchers, to poets, to indigenous land stewards. From those interviews, we created theatrical monologues that will be performed by actors, accompanied by original music, and contextualized with visual art. The goal of this project is to foster dialogue about a complicated cultural and environmental topic, and to leave audiences with a greater understanding of how we can work together to create a more harmonious ecosystem.
