Philly Comedy Round-up, Vol. 68

Last week comedian Doogie Horner wrote about being asked to perform stand-up at a holiday party, and then followed up his first post with a story about his experience.

This Wednesday Accidents Will Happen will begin their run as a weekly show at Adobe Cafe (1919 E. Passyunk Ave). This week’s show will be entirely an open mic. You can sign up for the mic at 8:30pm the night of the show or via email to accidentscomedy@gmail.com

This Saturday Rookie Card at the Raven Lounge will return for their Farewell 2012 show. The show will be hosted by stand-up comic Dan Scully and feature improv sets from PHIT House Team Hot Dish and duo Steve Rogers is Dead.

It was recently announced that Todd Barry will bring his Crowd Work Tour to Philadelphia early next year when he will perform at The Urban Saloon on Sunday, January 20th. As the name suggests Barry’s performance on the show will be completely crowd interaction instead of his usual written material. You can find more information on Facebook.

Billy Bob Thompson (The Feeko Brothers, Camp Woods, Hate Speech Committee, formerly of ZaoGao) has been chosen by the Peoples Improv Theater in New York as a recipient of their Improv Your Life Scholarship, granting him a full ride to their level one through five improv courses. Congrats, Billy.

This Wednesday Tight Six expands from their weekly open mic to present Not Jazz at Chris’ Jazz Cafe (1421 Sansom St.) a show featuring “a mix of stand-up, music (not jazz), fun, not jazz, games, and other spontaneous insanity.” The show will feature comedy from Doogie Horner, Juliet Hope Wayne, Alex Grubard, Jim Ginty, Sidney Gantt, and Robert X.

Comedian and storyteller Juliet Hope Wayne has been nominated for the 2012 Philebrity Award for General Fabulousness. The Philebrity awards are determined by online poll that will be open until Wednesday, December 19 at noon.

While we’re on the topic of awards shows; the nominations for the 2013 WitOut Awards for Philadelphia Comedy have been announced. Online voting is open to comedians and the general public from now until December 21. Tickets to the show and after-party will be on sale online via World Cafe Live.
