As an undergrad, then in law school at the University of Denver, Troy Walker moonlit as a stand up comedian. 

Raised in Denver, he moved to Los Angeles a couple of years ago and comedy is now his full-time job. Walker, who has twice won the Comedy Works “New Faces” contest, is back in Colorado this week. He performs at Comedy Works in downtown Denver Wednesday night and Thursday night at the Comedy Works South at The Landmark in Greenwood Village.

Walker spoke with Colorado Matters host Ryan Warner.
