Barely two years after its start as a live stage act at midtown's Satori Theater, STL Up Late will be making its televised debut on November 15. The show, a combination of sketch comedy, interviews and musical guests which follows a late-night format, will air on KMOV's MY-TV network at 2 a.m. Guests will include filmmaker Alex Winter (best known for his role as "Bill S. Preston, Esq." in the Bill and Ted movies, also a former St. Louisan) and Pokey LaFarge.
FILMMAKER ALEX WINTER AND POKEY LAFARGE TO APPEAR ON STL UP LATE’S TV PREMIERE.
STL UP LATE is making its TV debut on KMOV’s MY-TV on November 15th. Filmmaker Alex Winter and musician Pokey LaFarge are set to appear on the inaugural show.
STL UP LATE is hosted by comedian Eric Christensen. It has existed as a live-only late night comedy talk show in St. Louis for two years. The show’s jump to TV comes after 500+ people donated $38,000+ to STL UP LATE’s Kickstarter in September.
ALEX WINTER is an English-born actor, director, and screenwriter. His 2015 film Deep Web: The Untold Story of Bitcoin and the Silk Road is set to play opening night of the St. Louis International Film Festival on November 5, 2015. He is also known for his role as Bill S. Preston in the 1989 film Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
POKEY LAFARGE is a St. Louis native and long-tenured musician. Earlier in 2015, Pokey released his seventh studio album, Something in the Water. He has toured extensively throughout the United States and Europe. He has appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman and A Prairie Home Companion.
In addition to Eric’s interviews with Alex Winter and Pokey LaFarge, the show will feature sketch comedy, jokes, audience interaction and more!
