Rock Paper Podcast
Briefly Describe What You Do
STL based Podcast featuring interviews with local musicians & comedians.
What influenced you to become involved in the comedy scene?
I had always been a big fan of comedy and I started hanging out every Sunday at the Westport Funny Bone. I quickly became a big fan of the local comics. Before I knew it, they were all my friends and I wanted to support my buddies.
Describe your best comedy experience?
One of my favorite shows was last year when I went to Chicago to see Chris D’elia, Ron Funches, Brent Morin & Rick Glassman of Undateable.
What do you like best about the St. Louis Comedy scene?
I really enjoy how eclectic the scene is. There are many various forms of comedy, many different voices and views, and people taking strides to start their own shows all over town.
