The Best St. Louis Comedy Shows in March
There are quite a few open mics in the city these days. On occasion there will be more comics than individuals in the crowd, and other nights there won't be an empty chair in the room. That's just the name of the game for open mics: Comics hope for the latter but more often than not there's just no way to predict the turnout for the night. However, there's one open mic room in St. Louis that is packed on a weekly basis.
On Wednesday nights Jovan Bibbs hosts "Laughs on Lola." He's a comic that too will outgrow the scene in St. Louis (and may have already). Jovan's material is fresh and diverse. Some open mic hosts will stick to their tried-and-true, but not Bibbs. He works off the cuff, and there's been times I wonder if the man has ever had a bad night on stage. He is the driving force behind the show's success and brings on comics from all walks of life. Stage time on his show has become a staple for St. Louis comedians who want to perform for one of the best crowds in the city. This crowd is special for open-micers. They're not there because the bar has cheap drinks or because they wandered in and there just so happens to be a show that night; the crowd at Lola is there to laugh, but they don't let it come easy. At Lola the crowd makes sure you work for and deserve every laugh.
