We were delighted to see that Thomas Crone has a Q&A in St. Louis Magazine with some of our favorite local comics. Follow the link and peer into the minds of Rima Parikh, Angela Smith, and Carolyn Agnew. It’s a fun read.
Also, starting tomorrow, we’re going to begin posting new profiles of local comics twice a week (Wednesday and Friday) until we run out again. The last time we did these, we were constantly amazed by the reach each post had. Hopefully you’ll all enjoy this next batch just as much. And to show how much of a circle life is, Rima and Angela are both in the next round of profiles.
We didn’t post a profile this morning because we wanted to give a shout out to both the Riverfront Times and STLToday for covering the local comedy scene with their profiles of Chris Cyr and Rafe Williams respectively. If you haven’t read them, do it now. Both articles show some good insight into the local stand up scene.
We’re hoping this leads to much more coverage of St. Louis Comedy scene.
Read the profile on Chris Cyr at the RFT website.

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.
