We’re spending the next month or so profiling the comics in the St. Louis scene. We’ll be covering a range of comics from seasoned pros, to open mic comics booking their first shows. Our goal is to give you a glimpse at who you can expect to see, no matter where you experience live comedy.
Today, meet Larry Greene. Larry distinguished himself from the pack this year by winning BOTH of the major comedy competitions in St. Louis. Keep up with him as he blows up. We’re sure it’ll happen soon.
