One of the problems a lot of comedy scenes deal with is the tension that exists between the local comedy clubs and the comics who put on DIY shows around their city. St. Louis is lucky enough to have three clubs comics can get work in, and who aren’t antagonistic towards indy shows. Not only that, all three have regular open mics and showcases that only feature local talent.
Charlie Winfrey is a regular performer at the Westport Funny Bone here in St. Louis. His self-deprecating and irreverent style of comedy has helped him land some great shows, including opening up for the great Doug Stanhope.
