Philly Comedy Round-up, Vol. 40

The 2012 Troika championship was held Saturday at The Sideshow with 3AM (Rob Baniewicz, Maggy Keegan, Jason Stockdale) taking home this year’s title. The team utilized a more traditional style of improvised scenes with their hook being that they all took place at, you guessed it, 3:00 AM. Runners up in this years competition were the CB Radio improv of the Mother Truckers (Mandy Dollar, Jess Snow, Sue Taney) and the improvised first date of Chaperone (Frank Farrell, Steve Kleinedler, Meredith Weir)

Rittenhouse Comedy‘s 2012 March Madness Comedy Competition continued last night at The Famous International Variety Show with Mike Logan and David Ray Ageykum moving on to the finals. Round 3 continues this week where four comedians will compete each night to move on to the finals, held on Tuesday, April 3 at Helium Comedy Club. Tonight, Laughs on Fairmount will feature Josh Bennett, Tim Ryan, Kevin Hurley and Alex Grubard. Tuesday’s show at Rittenhouse Comedy will feature Gordon Baker-Bone, Jeff McManus, Steve Lichtenstein, and Alex Pearlman. Thursday’s show at Center City Comedy will feature Steve Miller-Miller, Lisa Yost, Omar Scruggs, and Trevor Cunnion.

Tonight is the start of another two-week run for Philly Improv Theater at The Shubin Theater (407 Bainbridge St. Philadelphia). Tonight will mark the premiere of new show The Monthy Hour with James Hesky (9pm) and will be followed by the new night and time for Aaron Hertzog‘s monthly stand-up showcase Hey Everybody. At 7:30 the theater will kick off the night with a Comedians for a Cause Fundraiser Show. You can find the full PHIT schedule online.
