Vaudeville hosts Denver comedian Cayton-Holland

National touring headliner Adam Cayton-Holland is looking forward to a low key event Saturday at the Glenwood Vaudeville Revue.

Like any Colorado kid, I’ve been to Glenwood Springs a number of times, and I love it,” he said.

“I love performing in Colorado. There’s a more open mindset.”

In fact, he credits that same vibe with his success coming out of a relatively small market.

“When you start in a scene like that, you’re just trying to make the comics laugh,” he said. “There’s a lot of great acts coming out of Denver.”

Cayton-Holland ( was named one of 25 “Comics to Watch” by Esquire Magazine, one of “10 Comics to Watch” by Variety and has appeared on Conan, The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, The Pete Holmes Show and @midnight.

“It’s observational stuff– what I’m finding funny at the moment,” Cayton-Holland said of his comedy style. “I like to point out the absurdities.”

Along with the crews for critically-lauded live show and web series “The Grawlix”, Cayton-Holland recently wrapped up production on season one of a new sitcom entitled “Those Who Can’t.” The show, which follows teachers in a failing public high school, which will air on TRU TV in 2016.

“It’s gonna be a big deal, we’re pretty excited,” Cayton-Holland said.
