Philly Comedy Round-up, Vol. 36

It is the start of another two-week Philly Improv Theater run at The Shubin Theater (full schedule online). Tonight, we say farewell to Chip Chantry’s One Man Show (With Special Guests). The final show before Chip passes the torch to James Hesky will feature comedy from some of Chip’s favorite comedians including: The Legendary Wid, John Kensil, Andy Nolan, Eric Todd, Steve Rees, Don Montrey (who passed the torch to Chip from his show Die Actor Die) and Secret Pants. The show will also feature popular segments The Feed with Jim Grammond and Story Time with Mike Rainey along with some surprises. City Paper talked about the event in their weekly comedy column LOL With It last Friday, you can read the story online.

Sketch group Camp Woods recently announced the lineup for their next Camp Woods Plus. The group will be joined on stage at L’etage (624 S. 6th St. Philadelphia) by Philly duo Animosity Pierre and New York’s Pink Axe. The next Camp Woods Plus will be Wednesday March 14th at 8:00PM.

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.”
