Everybody needs a laugh this week. St. Louis comedy has ’em in spade. Clubs reign supreme this week with few independent shows going on, but we promise they’ve packed a lot of comedy into a just few days this week. Feast your eyes on this week’s St. Louis comedy roundup!
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.
There’s a rainy week in store for St. Louis. Stay dry and entertained at any of these fine St. Louis comedy shows. Grab your umbrella and come hang out in a venue with a roof. We don’t know of any venues without one, but we can guarantee all of these shows happen under one and being prepared is half the battle!
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.

*Stryker Spurlock is not on this lineup as I have a suspicion he is in fact, immortal.
The Internet. The final frontier. This topic venn diagrams well with so many other topics: dating, school, crime. It’s going to be weird and it’s going to be great.
