The Best St. Louis Comedy Shows: September 2013
Every 1st and 3rd Monday at Heavy Anchor

Open mics are the driving force behind all that is comedy. They're like band practice for comics. Imagine though having to work out a song that's just a concept in your mind in front of a room full of strangers (on a good night). You don't have the chord progression or even the melody -- just the novel idea. It's a safe place for veterans to try out new jokes and a toe in the water for the newbies.
So I implore you to check out an open mic and even furthermore, Comedy Shipwreck. Whether that be to sit and listen or stand and talk. Comedy can't happen without an audience and God knows the comics' friends have seen far too many shows.
