Raconteur Denver: First Inebriation

Raconteur Denver says
Join us for Denver's coolest bi-monthly storytelling series put on by Amber Blais, Derrick Mund and Mike Edwards at stellar places around Denver.

Do you remember the first time you tried a beer? Or how about the first time you smoked a joint? What about the first time you got drunk on that drug called love?

What happened next?

The first time Amber got falling down drunk was off of a Mike's Hard Lemonade at the ripe age of 21. That true (and slightly pathetic) story is too short to tell on stage, so you get it here.

Hear the tales of Brian Foley, Timmi Lasley and Sam Pike on the beautiful patio of Carbon Beverage Cafe & Habit Doughnuts.

Then share your stories with us! You'll have two minutes to regale us with your tale of inebreation. We promise not to judge, but we might laugh - with you of course.

FEATURED RACONTEURS
Brian Foley
Poet
Brian is the author of The Constitution (Black Ocean, 2014). His writing has appeared in Boston Review, Verse Daily, Denver Quarterly, jubilat& The Volta. He was selected as a 2014 New American Poet by the Poetry Society of America. He's was born and raised in Massachusetts and currently a doctoral candidate at the University of Denver.

Timmi Lasley
Comedian
Timmi has been a staple in Denver comedy since 2009. She runs a kickass showcase in a punk rock bookstore (Mutiny Information Cafe—a High Plains venue) called Epilogue Comedy, and a nice dinner-and-drinks-kind-of-showcase in the side room of a Tequila bar called El Charrito. In addition to having been on every show Denver has to offer, she also runs what is widely considered to be Denver's favorite open mic. She's worked very hard on becoming an original and thought-provoking funny-human, which has paid off in spots on shows such as The Grawlix, Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction, Seven Minutes in Purgatory, and the last two years of the High Plains Comedy Fest.

Sam Pike
Chronicler
Sam Pike is a storyteller and podcast host living in Denver, CO. A student of history, he recognizes that seemingly inconsequential events have the ability to shape our culture in profound ways. To better capture these moments, Sam lives and works amongst the subjects of his storytelling—Denver’s creative community. Using audio, video and written word he explores what fuels creative ambition, why people choose to be artists or entrepreneurs, and what can individual’s stories reveal about the larger culture of self-starters. He hopes his work will encourage others to live with greater creativity and a stronger sense of personal freedom.
