Fresh off Easter, it’s time to gather those chocolate bunnies and send part of them to the IRS for tax day, which is on April 18th this year. Most comics probably aren’t even filing taxes, but it’s good to know. Let’s get to the real meat of the week. We still giggle when we hear the numbers 69 and the almighty 420. Cool people will celebrate 4/20 by smoking a fat blunt (Can you tell someone who doesn’t smoke weed wrote this?) and uncool people will spend 4/20 wishing Hitler a happy birthday. Hell, you may even be high and do it by accident. No two pastimes go together better than watching standup comedy and being high. We’re not advocating drug use, but hell, you’re an adult and can do whatever you want. Also, why have the Easter people not gotten with the 4/20 people and put together the greatest wake and bake holiday the world has ever seen?
Baseball’s over! Just kidding. It’s a joke. It’s not a good one, but we had you for a bit. No, downtown will still be soaked with Cardinals spirit and Busch beer until the boys of summer have gone home. There’s not a game every night, so what are you going to do? Watch TV, who has the time? St. Louis comedy is what you need and we have lots of it this week, from open mics to huge independent shows to something somewhere between that.
Leave your house, take in the fresh air, pull up a chair, grab a beer, and listen to comedians. It’s that easy!
We’re a baseball town, sure, but don’t let that distract you from all the great St. Louis comedy shows happening this week! Opening Week is a fun time to watch baseball and see a bunch of your favorite players in games that don’t matter. There’s a veritable World Series of comedy happening every week where comedians attempt to out play their inner demons and bring joy to the hears of strangers at showcases and open mics in bars all over the city. Some bars have very soft seats and that’s something to be celebrated right there!
The Cardinals are offering a deal that lets you into a game to stand in a urinal for $29 a month and we’re out here giving away open mic comedy for free. You’re guaranteed a seat and won’t get a hot dog thrown at you, unless you ask nicely.
Be a team player and check out this week’s shows!
There’s a rainy week in store for St. Louis. Stay dry and entertained at any of these fine St. Louis comedy shows. Grab your umbrella and come hang out in a venue with a roof. We don’t know of any venues without one, but we can guarantee all of these shows happen under one and being prepared is half the battle!
Temperatures are rising, globally on average and not just seasonally, meaning baby squirrels flit across the street dodging your damn cars, chirping birds take their revenge from above, and St. Louis comedy shows are in bloom! You know what they were doing months ago. Our St. Louis comedy shows were getting it on and ’tis the season to see those baby comedy shows birth new jokes into the fresh Spring air!
Of course, most of the St. Louis comedy shows happen indoors at night, so none of that sunny stuff if happening. Unbearable heat is on the way and you can prepare for it by coming to a show in an air-conditioned venue!
We’re in the run-up to that fateful day where green beer and pissing as close to a parade as possible without people knowing becomes commonplace in our fine city. It’s that weekend where calls from drunken exes and your friend Shelly, you know the one, happen in the afternoon instead of the dead at night where they should be. Of course, now you can experience a surge – a surge in Uber pricing!
Before all that happens, get ready for the weekend and have a laugh with the great St. Louis comedy shows happening this week. Be entertained and don’t forget to wear green!
Fight the afternoon slump by filling your ears with some of St. Louis’s best podcasts. There’s no shortage of great local shows to listen to, so we’re highlighting a couple each week. Here are two to fill out your day, and your drive home.
