Josh Slobe is active in both improv and stand up locally. You can see him tonight hosting Open Mic 101 at Bar 101 in Soulard. His open mic is in a great venue and is a fun time. He’s not a shareholder in Taco Bell, apparently.
Zack Stovall is an incredibly high energy performer who’s been involved in a number of creative projects here in St. Louis. He’s performed with Sketchpad Comedy and The Catalogue, and his writing has been featured in Splitsider. He really put a lot of thought into that “taco” question.
Jim “The Dad” Keith has been a fixture of the local comedy scene for a long time. You can occassionally find him at area open mics carrying his shopping bag full of props, or on a local showcase at Helium Comedy here in St. Louis.
InnerGy is the host and creator of Word Up, a weekly open mic that features a comedy competition at Legacy Books. The open mic is a great time for audience and participants, as it adds a mix of other performance styles to the evening.
Angela Smith was recently profiled by St. Louis Magazine. You can find her performing 1/14 at the Monocle as part of Nasty Women: A Comedy Show, if you have a ticket. The show’s sold out. Which is a problem we think Angela’s going to have to deal with a lot in her comedy career. We see a lot of sold out crowds in her future.
Christian Lawrence is the founder of Bare Knuckle Comedy and is a driving force behind all of the many shows they’ve produced. Thursday 1/12, his show History Shmistory will kick off a weekend of comedy at Foam Coffee and Beer. History Shmistory features comics performing material in character as famous historical figures. Go see it!
It’s been a few weeks since Patrick Trowbridge and Eric Brown announced their new open mic, Hootin’ and Hollerin’ Comedy Open Mic. Since then, the show has literally taken on a life of its own as the show’s Twitter account has become sentient, and has taken on a Walther Matthauesque attitude toward the world.
It’s amazing how many people in St. Louis are obsessed with Pizza Rolls. Though, stand up comic Patrick Trowbridge’s description of these mini portable pizza based treats sounds more tragic than most. Patrick is funny and smart, and is working with fellow comic Eric Brown to bring a new open mic to the scene.
Jack Schurk can regularly be found at The Funny Bone, where he hides in constant fear of evil sentient killer dolls. He’s a pretty funny dude. You should check him out. Unless you’re an evil sentient killer doll. In that case, leave him alone.
