Philly Comedy Round-up, Vol. 17

As we talked about all last week Philly Improv Theater debuted their new house teams on Friday night. Along with the debuts came the revelations of the teams’ actual names. Brandybuck and Shadowfax will now and forever be known as Hey Rube and ZaoGao. The teams will perform together during the Philly Fringe Fest at Fresh Laughs.

Next Tuesday, August 16, Chip Chantry will be recording his first live comedy album (Facebook Event) at Helium Comedy Club.  Pat House and Amir Gollan will also be performing. Tickets for the event are $5 and can be purchased in advance online.

Last night at Helium, the first round of 2011′s Philly’s Phunniest Person Contest rolled right along with James Hesky, Chris Cotton and H. Foley advancing to the semi-finals, which are fast approaching.

The Grand Opera House in Wilmington Delaware is now accepting applications for their LOL @ The Grand contest. Ten comedians will be selected to compete and the winner will gain the chance to open for one of their upcoming mainstage comedians. Submissions can be found online and the deadline to apply is November 1.

Comedians for a Cause is organizing fund raising efforts for one of our own. Recently, Philly comedian Danny Ozark was attacked, beaten and robbed. Friend and fellow comedian Mike Rainey has organized efforts to accept donations for Danny through his PayPal account (send money to mrainey82@gmail.com on PayPal) as well as having a fundraiser show Saturday, August 13th at The Irish Pol (45 South 3rd St. Philadelphia).

    I hope that Grand Opera House In Wilmington burns to the ground. If they’re resorting to shaking comics down for $10 then I wouldn’t be shocked if the “winner” never gets the chance to perform due to them having to go out of business.
