Stand up comic, Ben Johnson, has one of the most most unique and entertaining acts in town.
Kris Wernowsky is one of the creators of “Sorry, Please Continue.” Though he lives in Cleveland now, he’s a St. Louis comic at heart.
He also wrote us a little sketch as part of his answers. Bonus!
The biggest comedy news in the city is that Louis CK is performing at The Scottrade Center Thursday night. Sure, that’s cool, but you’ll have to sit with 20,000 other people in a venue where you’ll barely be able to see him without the aid of a giant video screen. It’s like being in your living room, with more expensive beer and nachos.
If you haven’t seen these yet, Kenny Kinds releases a new video every Tuesday.
Drunk & Nerdy is a mixed bag of entertainment. They have a podcast. They have a live show. They have pub crawls, and other real world events. No matter what they’re doing though, they focus on the two things they’re best at, getting hammered and being geeks.
(Editors Note: Hammered & Geeky is actually a totally different podcast and has no affiliation with Drunk & Nerdy.)
Looks like St. Louis’ hybrid storytelling/comedy interruption hour is going Hollywood. With regular shows in two cities, appearances in Memphis, Brooklyn, and others, and now this excursion to Los Angeles, “Sorry, Please Continue” is racking up the frequent flyer miles. Congrats to show creators, Kenny Kinds, Jeremy Hellwig, and Kris Wernowsky. Read their write up
