Netflix Announces “The Degenerates”

“The country’s funniest, delinquent comedians are teaming up for this RAW and EDGY show at Triple B’s in East Fremont… before they all go to hell.” – The Blacklist NYC

You’ve heard of Netflix’s The Standups. Now, Netflix invites you to tune into it’s evil twin sister: The Degenerates. This new special will feature not one, not two but four comedians you’ve seen (or will have the chance to see) LIVE at Comedy Works! Each comedian will get one half hour rated “Not Safe For Work.”

The 6 comedians include: Big Jay Oakerson, Liza Treyger, Christina P, Yamaneika Saunders, Joey “Coco” Diaz and the 6th comedian has yet to be announced.

Chris Hardwick Praises Comedy Works for Using Yondr

Chris Hardwick is a comedian, actor, TV host, author, writer and producer. Recently, Hardwick had some good words to share about his past weekend at Comedy Works in April on his podcast called Idiot with Chris Hardwick.

“You sort of forget that people, even if it’s just a little bit, they’re just not in the moment at all times. And having not been in a situation for so long where everyone was just engaged in something without being on their devices, it was… UN-F*%$ING-BELIEVABLE!”

As most Comedy Works’ regulars know, Yondr is a company that we have chosen to create a more substantial comedy experience. Yondr creates little “sleeping bags” for phones that lock with the clasp of a magnet.The phones stay in possession of the owner and are unlock-able at any showroom exit. We use these bags at each show to ensure a quiet, interruption-free environment.

Contrary to Hardwick’s timeline, Comedy Works has used Yondr since 2016, but he was correct in saying Dave Chappelle introduced us to the company.

Yondr hasn’t been limited to our home-club shows. Comedy Works has been seen Yondring at places like the Bellco Theatre and Red Rocks Ampitheatre.

Natasha Leggero on Another Period and Performing in Denver

“Speaking of albums, you recorded your 2011 album, Coke Money, at Comedy Works. What do you think makes the club an ideal setting for album recordings?

Ask any comic and they will probably tell you that Denver’s Comedy Works is the best club in the U.S. I’m assuming it’s a mixture of the low ceilings and slightly raked stage of the club and the amazing Denver crowds.”
