Hey! It’s that time of year where families all the country are thankful for oppression. Eh, we can’t get that dark. We’re just happy to be a part of thriving standup comedy scene in St. Louis. Feast your eyes on all it has to offer this week.
We’ve only got a few shows to feature this week, but as the amazing turnout for Flyover Comedy Festival this past weekend shows, St. Louis Independent Comedy is very much alive and well and getting bigger! The festival featured local St. Louis comedians and national names from all over the country. The shows were packed, the audiences entertained, and the comedians are all hungover. Keep your fingers crossed for a second year!
The Grove is packing all kinds of St. Louis comedy wonderfulness and national headliners into 3 days. We’ve collected as many of the shows here as we could, but we urge you to check out the Flyover Comedy Festival website for a full schedule and ticket sales.
Halloween is coming up soon, but this week you cannot hide who you are. You’re a person that likes to go see live comedy in St. Louis and you tell everyone about upcoming shows and you follow all your favorite local comedians on several social media platforms and you’re going to see St. Louis Independent Comedy shows.
Temperatures are rising, globally on average and not just seasonally, meaning baby squirrels flit across the street dodging your damn cars, chirping birds take their revenge from above, and St. Louis comedy shows are in bloom! You know what they were doing months ago. Our St. Louis comedy shows were getting it on and ’tis the season to see those baby comedy shows birth new jokes into the fresh Spring air!
Of course, most of the St. Louis comedy shows happen indoors at night, so none of that sunny stuff if happening. Unbearable heat is on the way and you can prepare for it by coming to a show in an air-conditioned venue!
It’s the first Contraceptive Comedy of the year, on account of this being a monthly show, and this being the January show, and January being the first month of the year. GOT IT?
