Videos from The 2012 Dirtiest Sketch in Philadelphia Competition

Philly Sketchfest has released a few videos from the 2012 Dirtiest Sketch in Philadelphia Competition. Below you can see the winning entry from High Dramma as well as The Feeko Brothers‘ entry and Animosity Pierre’s contribution to the evening. You might not want to watch these at work, or if you’re eating, or squeamish. After all, it is a competition about who can get the filthiest.

If you are a Philadelphia comedy performer that produces a podcast, web series, sketch video, humor column, or any other online content let us know by emailing us at contact@witout.net so we can share it!

Video Round-up, Vol. 6

This Week’s Spotlight: ANIMOSITY PIERRE

 

 

Hey there! I’m back with my weekly video round-up! This week I checked out the hilarious ANIMOSITY PIERRE. ANIMOSITY PIERRE is a sketch comedy duo that is one part  Matt, one part Scott, and one part Dave. I have put together three of their videos that I thought you might thoroughly enjoy or hate, but I think mostly enjoy!

 

1. THE AP EXPERIMENT: Volume 20. Dave shows Diane and Rick his new invention.

 

2. THE AP EXPERIMENT: Volume 11. Ughh, a good allergy joke is so hard to come by, but this one’s pretty hilarical.

 

3. THE AP EXPERIMENT: Volume 15. Listen to the directors give all access commentary on Volume 2! Love the commentary but still waiting on that blooper/gag reel. I mean come on guys, when they get the giggles, it’s pretty hilarious.

Local filmmakers are looking for help in funding a new comedy project through Kickstarter. Their mission statement from creator Derrick Metellus: “Our television project Quarter Life Crisis is on Kickstarter. We’re shooting in April, and from now to then will be releasing some pretty funny material.  This is no student project, we’re aiming for cable. If you dont mind laughing, keep up with our updates. I promise not to beat you over the head with it. If you like it, you like it. If not, that’s cool. Thanks.”

Comedian Clint Coley is a native of Philadelphia currently living in Los Angeles. He began his comedy career in Philadelphia and currently runs his Chill…It’s Just Jokes series of shows once per month at Helium Comedy Club.
