Philly Comedy Round-Up, Vol. 15

Yet another round of Helium Comedy Club’s Philly’s Phunniest Competition was last night with Mary Radzinski, Steven Bryan and Gordon Baker-Bone moving on to the semi-final round. The first round continues next Sunday, July 31st and each Sunday after until August 21st. Get your tickets HERE

New York comedian Kurt Metzger recently released a new album through Comedy Central Records called Kurt Metzger Talks To Young People About Sex. He talks in THIS INTERVIEW about it, as well as getting his start as a comedian in Philly.

This Tuesday, Philly Improv Theater will host their new, monthly fundraiser show at the Shubin Theater. This month, PHIT will donate all proceeds from the show to the American Association of Zoo Keepers. You can find out all about the charity, and the show, on the Facebook Event Page.

Also at PHIT this week is the debut of new panel comedy show Reasonable Discourse With Jerks. Wednesday night, Jim Grammond takes the reigns from Luke Giordano (host of PHIT’s previous panel show The Bully Pulpit) where he will be joined on stage by John Kensil, Mary Radzinski, Mike Rainey and Blake Wexler to talk about what’s going on in the world, and why it’s funny.

The Ministry of Secret Jokes has been doing a lot of work on it’s Flickr account, uploading pictures from the past few years of shows. Check it out to see, as Doogie Horner put it “how terribly all the Philadelphia comics have aged.”

Starting Monday, August 1st there will be a new Monday night open mic in Northern Liberties. Comedy at the Piazza¬†will be hosted by Dan Vetrano and Chris McGrail, and will be a replacement for their now defunct Comedy X-Change. Show starts at 9:30 and is at King’s Oak, 1001 North 2nd St.
