A funny Valentine’s Day alternative

Special to the Daily

SILVERTHORNE – Valentine’s Day is always about love – but this holiday won’t be without a little laughter, too.Saturday at the Silverthorne Pavilion, comedians Teresa Roberts Logan and Jimmy Abeyta will tug at your funny bones instead of your heartstrings.”I like to draw attention to things we all think are ridiculous,” Logan said. According to Logan, taking a date to a comedy routine is the perfect way to go, whether it’s the first time, or the 800th time. “Comedy is always great. If it’s a first date, you find out what makes the other person laugh,” Logan said. “If you’ve been together for awhile, it’s still something different and interesting for Valentine’s Day.” Logan will most likely be performing first, with a clean, family-friendly show. She performs bits about everyday life, general observations and experiences. Abeyta provides more of an adult-oriented show, performing bits that discuss more couples material. “A seasoned comic should be able to make adjustments,” Abeyta said. “If I observe the audience and I see that it’s predominately between the ages of 21 and 30, then I’ll use bits that are edgier. If not, I’ll keep it clean. I’m not too graphic.”Abeyta agrees that there’s nothing better than a comedy routine for a Valentine’s Day date. “Laughter is good therapy anytime. It loosens up the spirit. I’ve always said that a comedy show is the best place to take a person on a date, especially a first date,” Abeyta said.

Logan has been a Denver local for 18 years, but she travels throughout the country spreading her humor. Her stage presence and original style combine with a clean approach to win her work in some of the finest clubs in the United States. She has opened for Jerry Seinfeld, Paula Poundstone, Ellen DeGeneres, Kevin Nealon, Dana Carvey and Drew Carey, among others.Abeyta was born and raised in Denver and has been performing as a comedian for the last 14 years. Abeyta is the only Latino comedian in Colorado that’s been on BET Comedy View. He’s also been on two world tour entertainment troops, which included travels to Korea, Hawaii, Japan and Greenland. According to Logan, she and Abeyta have different styles, simply because she tells jokes from a woman’s point of view, while Abeyta tells jokes from a male perspective. But both comedians agree that the show will appeal to just about anyone who desires a distinctive Valentine’s Day experience. For tickets to Saturday’s show, call (970) 262-7370.
