Comedians come to Circle H on Lake Granby on Saturday night
GRANBY – Circle H Retreat & Glass Art Center located on the shore of Lake Granby has added a new genre of talent along with their other special weekly events, hosting its third and final comedy show (professional and local amateur) of the summer this Saturday, Aug. 21. This weekend’s show features Deacon Gray. In 2008, Gray was the grand prize winner of the very first Great American Comedy Festival, held at the Johnny Carson Theater in Nebraska. He was also chosen as “Oklahoma’s Funniest Person” five times, and was selected to represent the state on Showtime in the 1991 National Lampoon Laugh-off at the Sahara hotel in Las Vegas. Gray has performed across the country and worked with such notable comedians as: Louie Anderson, Dave Attell, Lewis Black, David Brenner, Drew Carey, Dave Chappelle, Louis C.K., David Cross, Ellen Degeneres, Craig Ferguson, Jeff Foxworthy, Greg Giraldo, Bobcat Goldthwait, Kathy Griffin, Mitch Hedberg, Bill Hicks, D.L. Hughley, Sam Kinison, Robert Klein, Richard Lewis, Norm MacDonald, Paula Poundstone, Brian Regan, Chris Rock, Bob Saget, Sinbad, and Wanda Sykes. Gray moved to Denver, where he now serves as New Talent Coordinator at Comedy Works, overseeing the development of new and amateur comedians. Come Saturday to show support and encouragement for future shows of comedy at the Circle H. Circle H has been hosting local musicians, a few Grand County Blues Society shows and now comedy almost every week, over the past year and a half – with some weeks up to four nights in a row of entertainment. The performance back drop is a big picture window with a view of the mountains and Lake Granby. With a few shows getting booked for the fall and winter line up, Circle H plans to continue hosting music, art, comedy, special events, and any new and creative genres.
