St. Louis is a town full of aspiring comics. There are comedy open-mic nights every day of the week, and on any given night anywhere from 10 to 50 people put their names on a list and wait for their five minutes of stage time.
Thus, we bring you the second annual RFT Standup Throwdown, a competition intended to recognize and celebrate this city's up-and-coming comedians. Entry for the competition was simple. All the comics had to do was tweet, addressing the following topic: "That is so St. Louis..." while using the hashtag #so_stl.
Update: Congratulations to Lisa Rimmert, Jon Venegoni, Nick Branson, Mike Szymanski, JR Moore, Emily Hickner, Conor Hovis and Evan Rowe for making the Elite Eight.
