The Panic Hour Takes Over ‘Accidents Will Happen’ on March 6th

Philly comedians and hosts of The Panic Hour podcast Steve Miller-Miller and N.a. Poe will be joined by frequent guest Dave Piccolomini in taking over the March edition of Bradley Beck’s Accidents Will Happen at Adobe Cafe (which will become Chaos Comedy in April, hosted by Jimmy Viola and Jon Lalu).  Here’s the promo video for the show:

The waterboarding was a little much for me personally, but seeing Piccolomini gag and have to leave the room because the Bradley-Beck-jokes-as-torture was more than he could handle was pretty funny. And who doesn’t enjoy watching Alex Pearlman yell at someone?

‘False Flag: PANICxACCIDENTS‘ is Wednesday, March 6th at Adobe Cafe (1919 E. Passyunk Avenue) at 9PM. Admission is $FREE.99. An open mic will follow.

Bock’s Scores by Gerry Bock: Reasonable Discourse with Jerks

Well it’s shaping up to be another Philadelphia Summer sports fans! And we all know what that means… RUN FOR COVER! The Phillies have a lot of baseball left in the season to make up for lost time and lost base runners, the Eagles are looking more and more like the grid-iron roustabouts of yester-year, and rumor has it, the Philadelphia Major League Soccer Team is doing miserably! But don’t take my word for it. Don’t be so glum chum, let’s not throw out the baby with the bath water! We’ve got plenty to be proud of – the 76ers had a Dream of a Season… but that alarm clock always gets ya!

Let’s head to the tapes and check out the highlights from Jim Grammond’s Reasonable Discourse with Jerks (and I use that term loosely).

Here is each mention of professional sports from the entire show, along with who said it:

Jim Grammond – Terrell Owens*, Arena Football, Baseball, Hunter Pence

Mike Rainey – Ref, Ball, Houston Ramblers, Starting Line-Up Figurines

Steve Miller-Miller – Interception, Terrell Owens*, Tim Cheatwood, Offensive Lineman, Matt Bahr**, Cleveland Indians, Cleveland Browns, Webster Slaughter, Donovan McNabb*

Tim Butterly – Soccer, Mets*, Cowboys*, Mets*, AFL

Pat Barker – Kobayashi***, Jim Thome, Baseball Jerseys, Mets, Hockey Stick, World Wrestling Federation, Ultimate Warrior, “Wild Thing” Rick Vaughn****, “Fastball Pitcher” Bob Guiterrez*****

What a performance! If you ask me, this line up is batting 1.000! See you at the bookie’s!

*BUM!
** Philadelphia’s Own!
*** Considered a sport, not by me, but I don’t make the rules. Counts!
**** Almost didn’t make it, but still counts!
*****Definitely counts!!
