It’s Friday! That means it’s time to pack the kids into the closet, padlock it shut for the evening, and take your boo out on the town for a night of laughter.
STLComedy has a few options for you. So there’s no reason to just sit in front of a plate of cold pasta and tell each other the same stories you tell every week.
Comedy Night at 66 Cigar ($5 Cover / 6pm, / 66 Cigar, 3860 S. Lindbergh) – You like cigars? You like comedy? Who knew that there was a show that intersects perfectly with your interests! Head over now. Doors at 6.
Coffee Break with Ken Warner ($5 Cover / 7pm / Foam Coffee & Beer, 3359 Jefferson) – You like coffee? You like comedy? Who knew that there was a show that intersects perfectly with your interests! Head over now. Doors at 7.
The Bunker ($6 Cover / 8:15pm / The Improv Shop, 510 N. Euclid) – You like Bunkers? You like comedy? Who knew that there was a show that intersects perfectly with your interests! Head over now. Doors at 8:15.
It’s a dumb pun, but it correctly expresses our desire for you to see a live comedy show this weekend. Starting tonight. There are so many choices, you might have an anxiety attack. You know, that feeling when you’re presented with so many choices that your chest tightens and your vision starts to tunnel? Your breathing speeds up and gets shallow. Your body temperature increases. You feel like you’re going to faint.
Then you remember, it’s just comedy. No one’s going to die if you don’t choose their show. So pick the one closest to you. Or the one your friends will be at. Or throw a dart at your computer monitor and see where it puts you.
We hear that Frederick Douglass is doing some really good things. So, we dedicate this weekend’s show round up to him, and to the unsung victims of the Bowling Green Massacre. Never again. #RememberBowlingGreen.
Come out to this month’s Coffee Break to see St. Louis’ enfants terribles of comedy*
Admission is only $5, and 20% of proceeds go to Grounds for Health (http://www.groundsforhealth.org/). The rest of the proceeds go directly to the performers. Please come out and support live local comedy at the beauiful Foam Cofffee and Beer.
*Stryker Spurlock is not on this lineup as I have a suspicion he is in fact, immortal.
Local comedian Ken Warner is obsessed with coffee, jazz, and the Subway dining experience. Follow him on social media and you’ll see we’re not lying. Follow him to Foam tonight for Coffee Break with Ken Warner and you’ll see something you won’t forget.
This Thursday through Saturday is crazy full of shows presenting a variety of St. Louis comedians. Of course, the gods of winter have looked upon your opportunity to get some enjoyment out of life, and they seem determined to smite the area. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and we’ll do our best to update you with any weather related cancellations we learn about.
