Two nights before Holiday, and all through the scene
Three shows stand out, as the places for being
Independent comedy, outside of the clubs
Chock full of pop references and elitest intellectual snubs
Some will be weird, with content debatable
Some will be affable, fun, and relatable
Whatever your flavor, whichever your taste is
Get off of your couch and go to one of these places
Now you might be mad, that we didn’t say Christmas
But your hilarious indignation, is just why we did this
Coffee Break with Ken Warner (Foam, 3359 Jefferson, St. Louis, MO 63118)
Ken Warner is one of our very favorite people
If comedy was church, he’d climb to the steeple
And with a high powered rifle, loaded with laughs
He’d take out passersby, with his observational blasts
You could do a lot worse, than seeing this show
Here are a few names we believe, should convince you to go
(Featuring Ryan Dalton, Amy Milton, Emily Hickner, Amber Nelson, and Nick Vatterott. Show at 6:30. $5)
Contraceptive Comedy hosted by Stryker Spurlock (Shameless Grounds, 1901 Withnell, St. Louis, MO 63118)
We asked for his line up, he said “It’s a secret.”
We offered him money. He flipped us off and said “Keep It!”
So, we’ve no idea, who’s on this tonight.
But it’s always a good time, so attending seems right
(Show at 8:00, $5)
