We’re taking a minute to show you some of the great performers who’ll be walking the boards of the stages in The Grove for Flyover Comedy Festival November 8 – 10.
Angela Smith is a St. Louis based stand-up comic and friend to animals everywhere. She was a finalist in the 2018 Funny Bone comedy competition and has most recently opened for Nikki Glaser and Michael Ian Black.
Don’t miss her this week at the festival!
What about the festival are you most looking forward to this year?
All of it. Last year’s Flyover Festival felt like summer camp. I’m looking forward to seeing friends and catching as many shows as possible. Shane Torres is a must-see.
Do you have a favorite memory from last year’s festival?
None that I can share without compromising my promising future in politics.
As a St. Louis native, is there anything visiting comics must see or do while they’re in town?
Definitely. I think visiting comics would love coming to my neighborhood and checking on my pets a couple times a day while I’m busy enjoying Flyover. There’s a great washer/dryer setup in the basement if they wouldn’t mind switching the clothes over, too. Treat other cities like your own home — don’t touch my thermostat.
When / where are you performing during the festival?
11/8 at Ready Room for The Best of the ‘Lou Showcase, 11/9 hosting for Liam McEneaney at the Monocle and 11/10 hosting the first half hour of the open mic at Handlebar.
Give us your social media info!
You wake up tomorrow morning, and you’re in the middle of a post apocalyptic wasteland, much like the world of Beyond Thunderdome or Fury Road. What’s your plan for survival?
Same as my pre-apocalypse plan — share the hottest memes I can find and survive off the validation.
Promote something. Commerce saves us all!
Come to the Best of Boondoggle at the Heavy Anchor in South City on 11/7. It’s the night before Flyover, so any traveling comics who are getting in the night before — this is the show to see. It’s a gift to our comedy scene. Aaron Sawyer and his comedic collaborators are reprising the best sketches and videos from the show’s first year. I’m hosting it, and it’s not to be missed.
