It’s officially summer! St. Louis Comedy is sunny and ready planning pool parties, float trips, fun times at the drive-in, making out at Lookout Point, and not being allowed to wear shorts on stage! You could head to the beach, but St. Louis doesn’t have any that aren’t occupied by garbage barges and they’re no fun to waterski behind. We recommend you get a cool drink, chill on the patio for a bit, and then come inside to see the amazing talent St. Louis Comedy has to offer.
