Since 2012, Kaiserrific has self-published over 13 books and has been featured in several compilations with other authors. Hosting open mic shows in St. Louis since 2016 led him to launch his own show in 2019, Dat New Shit Poetry Open Mic to provide poets with an unlimited platform to perform without judges, critics and censorship. Kaiserrific is an award recipient for his outstanding performance at the Harry T. & Harriette V. Moore Memorial Park & Cultural Center in Florida and a two-time award winner at the 2021 Yours Awards for Spoken Word Male Artist of the Year and Spoken Word Artist for the Year. In his spare time, the St. Louis based artist spends time with his son, prepares for appearances and attends open mic shows to give his love and support for all artists.

Bill Burr: Slight Return
Bill Burr: Slight Return

Bill Burr announced the second leg of his Bill Burr (Slight Return) tour, produced by Live Nation, which will visit 25 cities starting on September 8th through December 17th. On the heels of his historic show in Boston as the first comedian to headline Fenway Park this August, following stops include Tulsa, Philadelphia, and Chicago before wrapping up in San Antonio.

On August 21, Bill will make history as the first comedian to perform at Fenway Park. His Bill Burr (Slight Return) arena and amphitheater tour kicked off in April and will visit 53 North American cities in 2022.

A Grammy-nominated comedian, Bill Burr is one of the top comedic voices of his generation achieving success in TV and film as well as on stage. Bill sells out venues internationally and his Monday Morning Podcast is one of the most downloaded comedy podcasts.

In 2020, Bill made his debut as host of Saturday Night Live on October 10, he starred opposite Pete Davidson and Marisa Tomei in the Judd Apatow film, The King of Staten Island, and he starred as Mayfeld in The Mandalorian on Disney Plus.

In September 2019, Bill released his sixth hour-long comedy special, Bill Burr: Paper Tiger, which was nominated for a Grammy Award, was recorded at London’s Royal Albert Hall and is streaming on Netflix.

Bill was seen in the Hugh Jackman film, The Front Runner; the Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell film, Daddy’s Home; he co-stars opposite Kevin Costner in the indie film, Black or White; was seen in the Paul Feig film, The Heat, alongside Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy and in the Al Pacino and Christopher Walken film Stand Up Guys. Bill received raves for his recurring role as “Kuby” on the hit AMC-TV show, Breaking Bad.

This event will be a phone-free experience. Use of phones will not be permitted in the performance space.

Upon arrival at the venue, phones will be secured in individual Yondr pouches that will be opened at the end of the event. Guests maintain possession of their devices at all times, and can access them throughout the event only in designated Phone Use Areas within the venue. All devices will be re-secured in Yondr pouches before returning to the performance space.

All pouches and equipment are routinely sanitized. The Yondr staff is trained and required to follow safety guidelines and hygiene protocols to practice social distancing, minimal contact and wear required personal protective equipment.

Anyone seen using a device during the performance will be escorted out of the venue by security. We appreciate your cooperation in creating a phone-free experience.
