Historic and Hilarious tour of downtown Denver highlighting the bootleggers, brothel owners and boldest con men that shaped the mile high city.
Welcome to the wild wild west
We explore the seedy side of history alongside local comics and historians. Guides who are not afraid to talk about the kind of money madames brought into Colorado, walking through the former red-light district to see the classiest bordellos of the west. Walk down frontier main street and encounter the same gullible crowds Soapy Smith would con on a daily basis. Visit an iconic den of sin, also known as a jazz bar, and revisit a baseball bat wielding bar owner that nearly assaulted Bono.
See history repeat itself
Denver history is steeped in the rich drama of lawlessness and moral ambiguity, and after walking through the city with a professional comedian as your guide, you will certainly agree, nothing has changed.
We still have burlesque shows in basements, speakeasies, gastro-brothels and bathhouses. You can see how beer is kegged, whiskey is barreled and marijuana is grown without walking more than a mile.
