Comedy Show


Bearly Started is a stand-up comedy showcase featuring three comediennes with comedy routines that explore issues concerning sexual and gender identity.  We use comedy to

enlighten people on these issues and to send the message to all LGBTQ people,

"You are not alone."


Chuck Roy hosts Bearly Started, a show featuring rising star comediennes! Chuck is a veteran comedian seen on Will & Grace, 3rd Rock from the Sun and Showtime.  Chuck is a great host.  This summer he’ll host his 10th season of Denver Film Society’s Film on the Rocks, a night of movies and music at the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre.


The comediennes of Bearly Started include:
