It's no secret that Missouri's legislators enjoy rescinding the rights of women, minorities and the poor. That's why the Lady Parts Justice League has leaped into action. The collective gathers comics and writers and sends them out on the road to help raise awareness of attacks on reproductive rights and other social injustices in cities hard-hit by repressive laws, through stand-up comedy and improv. The group then goes one step beyond by inviting health clinic workers and community activists to the show, giving them the opportunity to speak directly with a crowd of people who want to help but may not know how best to do so. The Lady Parts Justice League brings their Vagical History Tour to Blueberry Hill's Duck Room (6504 Delmar Boulevard, University City; www.blueberryhill.com) for a 7:30 p.m. show. Performers include Lizz Winstead (co-founder of the LPJL and co-creator of The Daily Show), Joyelle Johnson, Leah Bonnema and the Upright Citizens Brigade company Buzz Off, Lucille. Tickets are $15 to $20.
