We’re a baseball town, sure, but don’t let that distract you from all the great St. Louis comedy shows happening this week! Opening Week is a fun time to watch baseball and see a bunch of your favorite players in games that don’t matter. There’s a veritable World Series of comedy happening every week where comedians attempt to out play their inner demons and bring joy to the hears of strangers at showcases and open mics in bars all over the city. Some bars have very soft seats and that’s something to be celebrated right there!
The Cardinals are offering a deal that lets you into a game to stand in a urinal for $29 a month and we’re out here giving away open mic comedy for free. You’re guaranteed a seat and won’t get a hot dog thrown at you, unless you ask nicely.
Be a team player and check out this week’s shows!
