St. Louis Wedding and Event Planners:
The Pub Theater Company Brings Long-Running Party-Favorite, Bye Bye Liver, to St. Louis audiences at Maggie O’Brien’s
Bye Bye Liver (BBL) is an ideal activity for Bachelor and Bachelorette outings, birthdays and any celebration where the act of partying is revered as an art form. BBL is perfectly geared for groups looking to make their outing in St. Louis both memorable and unique. It sweeps its audience members off their feet, gets them involved and takes them on a 90-minute romp through “Frank’s Bar”, our own virtual hot-spot where the cast plays out the proudest (and most embarrassing) moments of our misspent youth for the merriment of all to see!
Featuring some of St. Louis’ top sketch-comedians, Bye Bye Liver draws from a playbook of scenes and games proven effective throughout a successful 4-year run in Chicago, and more recent expansions into Milwaukee and the Twin Cities. Customized for St. Louis audiences and hosted at the popular and hospitable Maggie O’Briens (2000 Market Street, adjacent to Union Station) BBL is conveniently accessible from most major local attractions.
Equally suitable as a launching pad for a night on the town, or a place to land and see the evening through, Maggie O’Brien’s exceptional staff offers a great selection of spirits and Irish pub fare till 3am. With generous drink specials and live music after each the performance, the stars of Bye Bye Liver set the curve on cast parties weekly, and can often be found raising glasses and swapping stories with their audience till the wee hours.

The Pub Theater Company announced the expansion of “Bye Bye Liver: The St. Louis Drinking Play” into a second venue with a Friday May 6th opening date confirmed for the Fox Hole at Atomic Cowboy. The Fox Hole will present shows at 8pm on the 1st and 3rd Friday of each month, May through August, to run concurrently with the 8pm Saturday series at Maggie O’Brien’s.
The cast of Bye Bye Liver is capitalizing on St. Louis’ seemingly unquenchable thirst for bawdy, alcohol-infused comedy and building on the momentum of 14 consecutive sold-out Saturday shows at downtown hotspot Maggie O’Brien’s. With the addition of a second venue this summer, The Pub Theater Company aims to double the number of tickets it can offer while reaching a broader audience of local revelers with a base in the increasingly fertile entertainment district of “The Grove”.
Among the pioneer locations for performing arts in “The Grove”, The Atomic Cowboy complex is known for hosting a broad spectrum of live music, burlesque, comedy and variety events in the Fox Hole and on three other stages. As the weather heats up, so does the Atomic Cowboy entertainment schedule and Bye Bye Liver’s weekly cast parties will take advantage of a sprawling outdoor patio space and post show entertainment from some of St. Louis most notable DJ’s and live musicians.
An established feature on Chicago’s comedy scene for over four years, Bye Bye Liver’s signature cocktail of laughter and booze has an appeal proven transcendent of its parent city. In addition to Chicago, productions are ongoing in Milwaukee, St. Paul and Toronto. No market, however, has embraced this unique brand of 100-proof comedy with more enthusiasm than St. Louis. Attendance continues to exceed the most optimistic projections, birthday and bachelorette parties increasingly drive group sales and local media have been consistently supportive of this niche entertainment option.
