Continuing with the latest bump of local media coverage of the St. Louis comedy scene, both Amy Milton and Libbie Higgins made the Riverfront Times’ list of “Seventy Five Reasons We Love St. Louis.”
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. It’s like being in your living room, with more expensive beer and nachos.
Libbie Higgins recently finished in the top three of Helium Comedy’s 2016 Funniest Person in St. Louis competition. She creates videos that go viral as soon as they hit the web, and the characters she plays sometimes live in infamy. She was ready for new media before it even existed. On top of that, she still has time to be the world’s most enthusiastic New Kids on the Block fan.
