STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — September’s Super Fun Steamboat Show features all the classic super fun ingredients — sketches, comedy, dancing and music — as well as welcoming a new element: a game-show style, local trivia test for members of the audience called “Super True or Super False.”

“All they gotta do is answer ‘super true’ or ‘super false,’” said Super Fun Show creator-writer-producer-actor Todd Danielson. 

The nuggets of local knowledge — or local sham — were compiled by the entire Super Fun crew.

“It was a group homework project,” Danielson said, “a collaborative effort.” 

The audience members who are brave enough to step up to the plate of Super True or Super False will compete for a gift card to Storm Peak Brewing Co. and, just as tasty, bragging rights.

The September show opens with a sketch involving bears in a bear witness protection program, which bestows the show with its name, “Steamboat’s Most Wanted.” The evening also features “Super Fun Tank,” a take on Shark Tank, as well as several dances and comedy acts and Will Griffin singing another cover song.

“We’re very excited about (this) because his voice is amazing,” Danielson said.
