As the year winds down, WitOut collects lists from comedy performers and fans of their favorite moments, comedians, groups, shows, etc. from the last year in Philly comedy. Top 5 of 2012 lists will run throughout December–if you’d like to write one, pitch us your list at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Tonight at 8pm Philly Improv Theater will host The Roast of Brendan Kennedy. Kennedy has been a stand-up comedian, member of sketch group Camp Woods, improviser with Hate Speech Committee, and host of PHIT show Guilty Pleasures in Philadelphia for the past few years and is preparing to move to Los Angeles early in 2013. The roast tonight will be hosted by Benny Michaels and will feature sets from John McKeever, Rob Baniewicz, Jess Ross, Christian Alsis, Jim Grammond, Brian Craig, Mike Rainey, Shannon Brown, Doogie Horner, Roger Snair, Alex Pearlman, Greg Maughan, Joey Dougherty. One member of the dais couldn’t wait for tonight and wanted to dedicate a Top Five list to Brendan. We now present Rob Baniewicz’s Top Five Shows Sabotaged by Brendan Kennedy.
1. Bedtime Stories: Revenge!
2. Guilty Pleasures feat. Fastball Bob
3. Chicago Sketchfest 2012 Sketch Open Mic
