Faster than a loop trolley train, it’s the St. Louis comedy roundup for the week of 6/19 to 6/25! Seriously, those things are slow. We checked it all out, called Joe Edwards and everything and he said, ‘Yeah, they’re pretty slow’. Progress!
We can see it now. The year is 2018. The Delmar Loop has been decimated by the trolley wars. Angry pedestrians and disenfranchised motorists rose up against the Loop Trolley, but the Trolley, using it’s cunning as all trolleys have, enslaved the humans. Now, one promoter sets out to do a comedy show on the trolley.
Trolley Comedy coming 2018!
