Center City Comedy’s Third Anniversary Videos

We told you last week that Center City Comedy would be celebrating it’s third anniversary of Thursday night open mics at the Raven Lounge with a special show that would bring together hosts from open mics all over the city, along with some of Philly’s favorite comics. Well, it happened, and our friends at Super DPS were there to capture the action on video. Below are some clips from the night – and you can see more on Super DPS’ Youtube Page.

 

Philly’s Phunniest Reunion Show

It’s been almost an entire month since Helium Comedy Club crowned Tommy Pope 2011′s Philly’s Phunniest Person – and it’s already time for a reunion of some of the comedians that made the final round of this year’s contest. Tonight, the club will host the Philly’s Phunniest Reunion Show featuring sets from Pope, along with runner up Darryl Charles and third place finisher John McKeever, as well as comedy from fellow finalists Chip Chantry and Andy Nolan. The show starts tonight at 8 and you can buy tickets online or (and I would recommend this option) call the club at 215-496-9001, mention any of the performers names, and get free admission. Check out some videos from tonight’s performers below.

First and Last Words with Joe Moore (Philly’s Phunniest Person Finals)

A packed crowd at Helium witnessed the cream-of-the-cream of Philadelphia comedy last night during the finals of the Philly’s Phunniest Competition.  Beginning almost 2 and a half months ago with 165 comedians, the field had been whittled down to 10 Finalists, who took the stage in order to see who would walk away with the title.  The was a true spectacle – each comedian was worthy of raucous laughter, wild applause, and probably a $1,000 prize, but there can only be one winner.  Surely those who missed out on this will be kicking themselves for a long time… for those unfortunate souls, here’s a taste of what you missed:

Below are the first and last words spoken on stage by each of 2011′s Philly’s Funniest Finalists:

(Comedian – First Word // Last Word)

Host Dave Smith – Thanks // Night

Pat Barker – Thank // Thanks

John McKeever – Hey // You

Chip Chantry – So // Everybody

Gary Vider – Thanks // Evening

Andy Nolan – Alright // Much

Mike Rainey – Alright // Rainey

Tommy Pope – Hey // Thanks

Gordon Baker-Bone – Yeah // Night

Pat House – Thank // Night

Darryl Charles – Yay // Everybody

Headliner Big Jay Oakerson – Thank // Around

Congratulations to all ten finalists, but a little extra congratulations to Tommy Pope who deservedly was named winner of 2011′s Philly’s Funniest.  And to everyone who missed the show – you’re welcome!

Philly’s Phunniest Semi Finals (Show Two)
