After being upstaged in October by the St. Louis Cardinals, “folk humorist” Mary Mack is making a second attempt at performing in our fair city. A former music teacher who now splits her time between LA and Minneapolis, Mack is a veteran comedian who has appeared on the Bob & Tom Show, the Vancouver Comedy Fest, HBO’s Andy Kaufman Awards and the Just For Laughs Festival. She also made a very notable appearance on Marc Maron‘s popular WTF podcast.
Mack is married to comedian Tim Harmston who has appeared on the Late Show With David Letterman. Harmston, along with comedians Jeremy Essig and Andi Smith, will join Mack at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Too Hip (for a Comedy Club) Hilarious ShowcaseSpectacular at Foam, 3359 S Jefferson Ave.
Kelsey McClure: Your last date in St. Louis fell on the same night as Game 1 of the 2013 World Series. Was its cancellation a direct result of baseball?
Mary Mack: Yes, definitely! If the Twins or Brewers made it to the World Series — please just let me have this dream — I would never go to a comedy show that happened simultaneously.
