Ask a Philly Comedian — What Are You Thankful For, Chip Chantry?

Chip Chantry Thanksgiving 2013Each day this Thanksgiving Week, WitOut asks a Philly comedian what he or she is thankful for. Today we asked Chip Chantry.
~~~~~

1. I’m thankful that my intramural Knockout Game team just made the semi-finals.

2. I’m thankful for the new Arcade Fire album, so now I don’t have to choreograph my figure-rollerblade routines to just Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill, like I had to for the last 12 season in a row.

3. I’m thankful for my Thursday Red Lobster lunches with Steve Swan. (UPDATE: The police have only been called ONCE on us this past month!)

4. I’m thankful for the decades-spanning body of work of Mr. Dabney Coleman.

5. I’m thankful for Christmas music on B101, so now I have something to listen to when I write in my revenge diary.

6. I’m thankful that I’ll be at Helium Comedy Club tonight and tomorrow at 7:30 and 10pm. I’m thankful that there is more information at www.heliumcomedy.com.

There was also a grass-roots rally at FDR Park for the comedic-yet-technically-impressive pro-wrestling promotion Chikara…

Wrestlers put on an exhibition to rally support for the recently shut down promotion.
