This Thursday through Saturday is crazy full of shows presenting a variety of St. Louis comedians. Of course, the gods of winter have looked upon your opportunity to get some enjoyment out of life, and they seem determined to smite the area. Keep an eye on our Facebook page and we’ll do our best to update you with any weather related cancellations we learn about.
That being said, here’s the line up!
History Shmistory – (Foam Coffee & Beer, 3359 S. Jefferson, St. Louis, MO 63118) – If you need to hunker down and shelter in place this weekend, Foam may be the perfect choice. Tonight kicks off an three day run of comedy shows at this intimate venue. History Shmistory, hosted and created by Christian Lawrence, is a show where comics perform sets in character as historical figues. It’s the only show in town with a comedy set by John Wilkes Booth. Show starts at 7:00 pm.
HH Comedy Presents: Ella Fritts – (The Night Owl at Tree House, 3177 S. Grand, St. Louis, MO 63118) – Hosted by Eric Brown and Patrick Trowbridge. HH Comedy is a hybrid open mic/headliner show. Go see some of St. Louis’s funniest comics work on new material and see this month’s headliner Ella Fritts murder a crowd. Hopefully, not literally. Show at 8 pm.
Fitz’s Comedy Night Presents: Cameron Keys – (Fitz’s Upstairs Bar, 6605 Delmar, St. Louis, MO 63130) – Hosted by Ryan Dalton and Andrew Mihalevich. Did you go see all of the open mic comics at HH Comedy? If you did, drive to U City and see them again at Fitz’s. Watch how they change jokes based on the earlier response. See who snubbed the earlier show and only shows up at the late show. See who didn’t want to drive west of Hampton for an open mic. Comedy is full of drama. You’ll be treated to a headline set from Cameron Keys, who’s pretty damn funny. Show at 10 pm.
Coffee Break with Ken Warner – (Foam Coffee & Beer, 3359 S. Jefferson, St. Louis, MO 63118) – Hopefully, Foam let you just hang out and hide from the icepocalypse that’s supposed to hit the St. Louis area. If they did, then you’ll be lucky enough to check out one of our favorite new shows. Coffee Break with Ken Warner has a solid line up of funny comics, and 20% of the proceeds go to Grounds For Health. Coffee, Comedy, and Charity. You can’t lose. Features Rima Parikh, Casey Paulsen, Ella Fritts, Cameron Keys, and Spencer Tegtmeyer. $5 Cover. Show at 8 pm.
Picnic Time Forever – (The Monocle, 4510 Manchester, St. Louis, MO 63110) – On the other side of town, The Monocle is home to the triumphant return of Picnic Time, one of the craziest monthly showcases in the St. Louis comedy scene. Hosted by Justin Luke and Andrew Mihalevich, this month’s line up features Chris Cyr, Hannah Streicher, Ryan Dalton, Emily Hickner, and Stryker Spurlock. $5 Cover. Show at 10 pm.
Sorry, Please Continue: The Internet – (Foam Coffee & Beer, 3369 S. Jefferson, St. Louis, MO 63118) – If you found last night’s shows fun, you’re in luck. The exact same venues have comedy shows for you tonight as well. Closing out Foam’s mini-festival is Sorry, Please Continue, a storytelling show that’s growing beyond just a St. Louis audience. Watch as a panel of interrupters is constantly amazed by the storytellers they interrupt. $5 Cover. Show at 8 pm.
Nasty Women – A Comedy Show – (The Monocle, 4510 Manchester, St. Louis, MO 63110) – Meanwhile, back at the Monocle, host Anna Drehmer brings you Nasty Women, an improv and stand up comedy show. The name of the show kind of gives you an idea of what to expect. It’s well worth the cover charge. Of course, the show’s sold out at the moment. So, maybe you can by tickets from someone who lost their car to the ice storm. $10 Cover. Show at 8 pm.
Get out and laugh in the face of death. You need the diversion!
