North Korea’s doing some stuff. The United States is doing some stuff. We don’t pretend to understand. What’s a nuclear bomb? Wikipedia won’t tell you how they’re made. Take your mind off imminent doom with St. Louis comedy. See up and coming comics at an open mic or see touring headliners. St. Louis comedy really has it all and it’s probably like the fourth target if a nuclear country decides to bomb us. Oh yeah, and there’s alcohol at a lot of these things!
