Philly Comedy Round-up, Vol. 51

Last night, the seventh annual Philly’s Phunniest Person Contest continued at Helium Comedy Club with Tommy Highland, Dave Temple, and Kevin Hurley moving on to the semi-finals. The competition continues Monday, July 23 and the opening round continues on Sunday and Monday nights until August 13 (full schedule here).

Tonight – the new weekly show Jokepile returns for its third show at XChange (10 South 20th St. Philadelphia). This week is their Superhero Showcase featuring Comic Comic Darin Martinez, the superhero of comedy Captain Action himself Sidney Gantt, hosted by Kids with Rickets, and more.

Center City Comedy released this sketch, a parody of the Mentos commercials popular in the 1990s last week  – and due to its content – and proximity to the Daniel Tosh controversy has received some backlash online. The debate between the sides continued online (you can read some of the back and forth here and here). What do you think?

This Thursday, Comedian Deconstruction returns to L’etage where improv groups will base their shows around the sets of some of Philly’s funniest stand-up comedians. This month will feature opening stand-up from Phyllis Voren and TJ Hurley while Paul Eason and Joey Dougherty’s sets will be deconstructed by Whisper and Bed Savage.

This Friday, comedian Sean Green (The Green Room podcast) returns to Philadelphia for a night of stand-up comedy at Underground Arts (1200 Callowhill St.) Tickets for the show are available online.
