Rocky Mountain Roller Girls kick ass. Go watch them.

Pancakes. Yum.

Art. Neat.

Booze? You lushes are in heaven.

Los Angeles’s famous underground art show is making a pit stop in Denver Friday night for The Pancakes & Booze Art Show.

Lucid Gallery, 719 W. 8th Ave., Denver, will showcase more than 30 Denver underground artists’ work with a free pancake bar.

Pancake bar for dinner? Who does that?

Who cares! It’s a free pancake bar!

Just don’t pound the syrup thinking it’s beer or you’ll get all antsy in your pantsy.

Info: 8 p.m. Friday; 303-623-0288; $5 cover

Rollin’ with the homegirls

The Denver rollerchicks were kicking serious ass way before Drew Barrymore popularized roller derby with her 2009 film “Whip It.”

The Rocky Mountain Roller Girls’ teams have been beating the hell out of each other for years. Saturday, at the Bladium Sports Club, 2100 Central Park Blvd., two teams will go at it in the Home Team League Championships.

The two oldest roller derby teams in Colorado — Red Riding Hoods and Sugar Kill Gang — will bout it out at 6:30 p.m.

There may be blood. There may be fractures. There will be bruises.

But it gets even better. Head out early to (the best bar ever, according to yours truly) the Skylark Lounge, 140 S. Broadway, Denver, grab a few adult bevs and ride the rollergirl PBR party bus to the Bladium.

The $27 bus charge includes a ticket to the bout and free beer on the bus — but get tickets soon, it usually sells out.

The bus leaves Skylark at 5:30 p.m. and heads back at 9:30 p.m. for a raging afterparty.

Put your drinking panties on — those girls can party.

Info: Bout is 6:30 p.m. Saturday at the Bladium; 720-984-3132;, $15 for bout admission, $27 for party bus (including admission).

You suck at comedy

Stop telling those damn jokes. Nobody is laughing.

But as a loser, you can be a winner!

So what if you rival Carrot Top as the worst comedian in history. The Nobody Likes Me comedy contest has a special place in its heart for you.

Oh wait. Not so fast. You suck at life: The roster is already full.

The contest features 32 of Denver’s best and worst comedians competing at Sutra Lounge, 1109 Lincoln St., Denver, on Monday night for a cash prize. With a successful first round Monday, the contest runs for another four weeks, with three more preliminary rounds and a final round on Oct. 25.

The best part is, the audience decides who wins. Uh. Or loses?

Denver comedian Jake Sharon — the former “Jesus of Denver” from KBPI’s Uncle Nasty Show — created this competition as a fair way to find great (and horrible) comedians, unlike many comedy contests, according to Sharon.

Info: 8 p.m. Monday; $5, includes one free vodka drink and appetizers.
