The Wham City Comedy Tour is a two-hour cross-genre variety show, showcasing the very best from Baltimore’s award-winning artist collective and fabled party starters. Expect stand-up sets, videos, dramatic monologues, and ensemble sketches in a tightly-run, visionary performance.
When Ben O’Brien and Dan Deacon organized the original Wham City Comedy Tour 3 short years ago, the group was already heralded for their music and art, but virtually unknown in comedy. Since that time, the tour has performed on stage with Chicago’s Second City, shared festival bills with Donald Glover, Neil Brennan, and Henry Rollins; O’Brien has opened for Parks and Recreation’s Nick Offerman; and Mason Ross won Best Comedic Performance in the City Paper’s Best of Baltimore issue.
Philadelphia’s own New Dreamz (Rose Luardo and Andrew Jeffrey Wright) will perform as well.
Date: April 27
Time: 8:30-10:30 p.m.
Location: Goldilocks Gallery, 723 Chestnut Street, 2nd Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19106
