St. 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.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t point out each of them stress the importance of open mics in developing material, since we’re in the midst of Death Mic 2017. Our favorite is Ella’s declaration that:
“I, personally, don’t consider someone a comic until they’ve done open mics for at least three months, no matter what shows you’ve done or what comedy you’ve participated in.”

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.

The biggest comedy news in the city is that Louis CK is performing at The Scottrade Center Thursday night. Sure, that’s cool, but you’ll have to sit with 20,000 other people in a venue where you’ll barely be able to see him without the aid of a giant video screen.
