St. Louis Comedy in the News: STLMag Profiles Eric Brown, Ella Fritts, and JC Sibala

St. Louis Comedy: Fritts, Brown, and SibalaSt. Louis Magazine continues Thomas Crone’s monthly profile of comics at various levels of the  St. Louis comedy scene.  This month, they asked questions of Ella Fritts, JC Sibala, and Eric Brown.  It’s a fun look at their views on the craft of comedy.

Shots fired!  Also, we agree.  Get out there and do the work. Here’s a list of open mics.

See Ella Fritts and JC Sibala this Wednesday night on Helium Comedy’s Dirty Show.  Catch Eric Brown with Dave Stone (the comedian, not the Jazz Musician) May 3, at The Monocle.
