We recorded today's episode at The Crow's Nest in Maplewood, MO on Sunday. Angela Smith joined Chris for breakfast drinks and they discussed everything from country ham to Ramen noodles, and a lot of other stuff we don't want to hashtag.
A few weeks back, Chris sat at The Tick Tock Tavern with Yale Hollander, host of the new show, The Wind Down. They discussed bar etiquette in an attempt to help you be less of a n00b when you're out and about. We only play about half of the interview, because Chris wanted a half an hour to drone on about arguing on the internet and then humble brag about being a regular in multiple bars.
At some point, Chris talks about audience and comic expectations from open mic comedy.
Brian McDowell, speaks with Impolite Company host, Chris Cyr. They talk about the local comedy scene, what it was like to be six months into stand up, politics without punchlines, being offensive/offended, and a bunch of other topics.
Chris is definitely not giving you actual tax advice.
Max Price curates and hosts the monthly local showcase at the St. Louis Funny Bone. We discuss that showcase, spiders, the appropriate age to let your kid watch Saw, and other things.
Chris rambles in the open. Much less coughing than yesterday's episode, thanks to some Mint Majesty tea from Teavana, which isn't a sponsor.
Today's guest on Impolite Company is Christian Lawrence of Bare Knuckle Comedy. We discuss the history of BKC, Christian's upcoming shows, old-timey cuss words, and other stuff.
Chris opens by describing the most dangerous creatures on Earth. Four year old children.
Scott James is one of our favorite guests. We were happy he accepted our last minute request to be on Today's Impolite Company. We discuss gambling, drinking, and sleeping. He also tells us about his phallic anxiety.
Chris realizes that just because he's on the road, it doesn't mean he can't record an hour of gibberish. He outlines the Facebook conspiracy, talks about karaoke, road trips, and that guy who always says he could've been a comedian.
Chris is still on vacation, so he's picked a great conversation from the first few days of the program for today's replay. Larry Greene can be found at all the local clubs and on his own independent shows.
We added a new intro.
While Chris is on vacation, the studio's been left unlocked. This morning on Impolite Company, Angela Smith snuck in Boondoggle's Aaron Sawyer, and they had a lot of fun.
For future reference, here are radio safe alternates for the f-word:
Chris sits down at Tick Tock Tavern with Andrew Mihalevich. They discuss world travel, giant robots, comedy, and "Chinese' food. Also, Chris slowly loses his voice over the course off this episode.
Sam Lyons is today's on Impolite Company. Sam's a newer comic in the St. Louis Comedy Scene. He currently co-hosts "Yours, Mine, & Ours," a stand up showcase monthly at gezellig, in The Grove.
He's also a fan of The Gilmore Girls
Christine Compas is a regular on local storytelling shows who's stepping up her stand up comedy game. Christine is hosting a special showcase at Brennan's for Comedy Penthouse this weekend. We discuss all of her various side hustles on today's Impolite Company.
