BentNotBroken_PT_5x4

Do you enjoy disability-themed comedy? Who doesn’t! Luckily, many of Philly’s top sketch comedy performers have coalesced to present Bent But Not Broken, a socially-conscious night of sketch comedy focusing on the experiences of, and society’s attitude towards the handicapable. I would buy tickets to this if I were you, it’s sorta like a who’s-who of Philly sketch comedy. BBNB features Shannon DeVido, Aubrie Williams, Paul Triggiani, Joe Moore, Briana Kelly, Chris McGrail, Jacquie Baker, Brian Kelly, and Matt Schmid. It’s directed by Samantha Russel. Tickets are available at at PHIT for either Thursday or Friday. Do it!

Black Friday Comedy Marathon – Performers and Small Businesses Wanted

black friday comedy marathonA 36 hour comedy marathon beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, November 28th will feature local comedy talent as part of Philly Comedy Month’s City Spotlight. The marathon will be hosted by the Hey, We’re Cool gang.

One of producer Brian Kelly’s goals for the marathon is to get many different theaters/revues/shows/performers in Philadelphia represented in the line-up so as to spread awareness about them to folks who may not know they exist.

Says Kelly, “The Black Friday Comedy Marathon is a big deal to me. I’m super excited and honored that Phit agreed to do it, that we have the hilarious Hey, We’re Cool hosting the marathon, and that I get to work on making it a reality with some truly amazing people.”

But they need performers! To submit your act for participation, visit Black Friday Comedy Marathon’s “submit your act” page.

In addition, Phit will be allying with small businesses in Philly; partnering businesses will be able to offer free admission to customers who shop at their stores beginning the Monday of Thanksgiving week (11/24), through Small Business Saturday (11/29).

If you know a local shop that would like to participate, send them to the Partner Your Business page.

Movie Movie Live w/ Dan Scully and Garret Smith

movie movie

We all love movies, right? Of course! Who doesn’t? For just $5 bucks, you can join other film-nerds-turned-film-jocks in answering trivia for prizes, yelling out famous lines, and arguing why Back to the Future II is even better than Back to the Future (which it is).

So pregame with a hell of a caucasion (that’s from a movie) and start your weekend entertainment early. PhilaMOCA is on 12th right off Spring Garden. Two funny Philadelphia comedians and hosts of I Like To Movie Movie podcast — Dan Scully and Garret Smith — will curate a cross-referential cinema soiree that will make college-you regret that you threw out those posters!

Photos from Dog Mountain & The Flat Earth

The funny folks on PHIT’s Sketch House-Teams Dog Mountain and The Flat Earth delighted last night with their weird-ass sketches.

First let’s take a look at the Dog Mountain show entitled, “Gory Hole”.

[click to enlarge]

Dog Mountain - Gory Hole

In the show’s titular sketch, a young man contemplates whether the “Gory Hole” is simply mis-spelled or a brutal torture device.

Dog Mountain - Hitler Time Machine

Their take on the classic “Hitler Time Machine”. If Hitler’s parents are too protective to get a clean murder of young Adolph, maybe some words-of-encouragement will set history straight?

Dog Mountain - Restaurant Friend

That friend who takes it personally when you find his restaurant recommendations to be only “pretty good”.

Dog mountain - Rhonda the Mooch

The hysterically funny Brianna Kelly plays Rhonda the Mooch, a Wiigesque office employee who always shows up with another department is having cake.

Dog Mountain - Birthday Flair

The worst happy birthday restaurant-singers of all time explain melodically how he’s not the real dad.

Dog Mountain - Married to Metallica

It’s not that he’s a thirty-year-old-virgin. He’s just faithfully married to Metallica.

The Flat Earth presents “Scrambled Porn”

Flat Earth - Orange ya glad

Orange ya glad I didn’t say banana?

Flat Earth - Cybersexing Parents

These parents’ toast at their daughter’s wedding reveals too much information. For example: how they met on Yahoo cyber-sex chat-room.

Flat Earth - Staples Journal 1

These strangers on a bench can hear each others’ thoughts as long as it’s being written into the journal they bough from Staples.

Flat Earth - Staples Journal 2

(This guy has the same journal too. By the way, Staples has a lot of great stuff!)

Flat Earth - Existential Sock Models

Existentially distraught sock-models share their life woes in-between takes. (Kudos to Matt Schmid for this nearly show-stealing sketch.)

Flat Earth - Small Town Airport

In a small-town airport, they simply have a more personal touch…

Five facts you probably didn’t know about The Legendary Wid

the widA lot of Philadelphia comedians got their start at the Wednesday-night open mic at the Laff House on South Street. For many a young Philly comic, The Legendary Wid — long-time emcee of the Wednesday mic — was the first face they saw.

Many continue on to “the grind” or “the trenches” where they run into Wid again, witnessing his manic yard-sale pun-a-thon at suburban clubs or fire-halls. He’s induced his fair share of groans, but if you give him a chance to make you laugh, he’ll always get you with something.

Here are some tidbits about Jersey native Michael Baldwin, aka The Legendary Wid, Philly’s prop-savant comedian extraordinaire…

  •  The Wid started out as an antique dealer in Princeton. He would entertain customers in his store by riffing on all the merchandise. He put together a two or three minutes of material for a local gong-show, and from there he was off to the races.
  • In or about 1999, after a comedy show on South Street, Wid was attacked by skin-heads. They called him “Waldo” and he told them to fuck off. They chased him down and beat him, leaving him with a concussion which stalled his headlining career.
  •  He considers himself “somewhere between a picker and a hoarder”. He has several storage-lockers filled with trinkets and baubles galore (pictured)
