Marc Cohn decided to address the issue of his shooting in Denver -- which happened three years ago during attempted carjacking, and after a show at Denver Botanic Gardens -- several times during his show at the Botanic Gardens Friday night, starting with saying how safe he felt to be back in Denver, then giving an explanation with a reference to “The World According to Garp.” Cohn talked about how in the movie, Robin Williams is being shown a house and a plane crashes into it.
