The Simba Claus: King of the Jingle <p>“Everything you see exists together in a delicate balance” - “The Lion King”<br /><br />The Simba Claus, King of the Jingle is a delicate balance of sketch comedy and a parody of The Lion King mashed up with the story of Santa Claus. Bovine Metropolis retells the tale of The Lion King. Instead of Mufasa being a lion, he is everyone’s favorite elf, Santa. His son, Simba, instead of becoming King of the jungle upon his father’s death, must become the King of the jingle, the one true Santa...The Simba Claus.<br /><br />Holidays are big game for the Bovine’s sketch team. They take take aim at Black Tuesday, Balthazar, and the Maccabees. The show is a hilarious ride of absurd comedy and craziness. This show isn’t a bah-humbug-Santa-bashing-Grinchy sneer at the holidays.<br /><br />"This is a holiday show for people who like the holidays. What makes this show different is that it’s a modern, non-snarky show. The Simba Claus is a joyful, funny, modern look at the holidays.” ~ Eric Farone, Director<br /><br />Need a place to take the kids while Santa gets ready? Or a place to entertain the visiting in-laws? The Simba Claus is perfect for everyone.

Improv Hootenanny <p>The Bovine's Community Night. Every Monday night is an Improv Festival.<br /><br />Come one, come all to the best darn improv hootenanny in Denver and the Front Range. Every Monday night for the last 17 years, Bovine Metropolis has let its doors swing open wide to welcome teams of improv performers from Colorado to join the stage and share their own hilarious improvised adventures.<br /><br />Coming from different backgrounds and with different levels of experience, each team brings something unique to the stage and leaves the audience with an unforgettable night. Among the performers, audiences will see classes from the Bovine’s improv school, visiting teams, and several house favorites.<br /><br />"We are a welcoming theater and enjoy seeing improv grow around Denver. We think it’s really cool to see different venues, groups, and performers pop up around town. The Bovine has been around a long time and I believe the Improv Hootenanny has contributed much to that,” says Improv Hootenanny-in-Chief Denise Maes.<br /><br />Anyone who wants to see something new, which could mean anyone who’s a fan of improv, will enjoy the variety of talent gracing the Bovine’s stage. And as an audience member, you’ll have your chance to add to the fun by offering suggestions and watching as these performers use them to step into the unknown.<br /> <br /><br />See website for performance schedule of Improv Teams.</p> 1527 Champa St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

On The Spot: A New Year's Eve Improv Show <p>Celebrate 2018 With Us!<br /><br />It gets cold outside celebrating the New Year, so stay inside and warm your funny bone until just moments before the big fireworks display. This year there are three showings on New Year’s Eve and the evening shows are timed so that the audience can enjoy the warm laughs and still catch the fireworks displays at 9:00 and 12:00 midnight mere feet away from the front door of the Bovine.<br /><br />It's is a great way to find entertainment downtown away from the swarms of the New Year revelry, a great balance between fun and gut-busting entertainment, and a unique place to ring in 2018.<br /><br />“Whose Line is it Anyway” is the most familiar version of game based improv, and many of the games in “On The Spot” are similar. And like “Whose Line...” this show features a cast of close friends. The cast is throwing a party for the audience complete with noisemakers, party hats, and a heck of a good time.<br /><br />Showtimes &amp; Tickets:<br />12:00 p.m. (noon) Tickets: $25 online and at the door - a Family Favorite! <br />7:00 p.m. &amp; 10:00 p.m. Tickets $40: Early purchase discount at $35 online through December 26th. Tickets: December 27th - 31st online and at the door are $40.<br /><br />These shows are for all ages and seats are general admission. There are no additional fees when purchasing tickets through our website. New Year's Eve party hats, noise makers and glow in the dark sticks provided!
