There’s a Kickstarter Campaign to raise money to produce an entire season of Down the Show, the project that showcases material from the minds of Philly’s sketch groups, stand-up comedians, actors, writers, illustrators and musicians.

Quizmaster/ Comedian Johnny Goodtimes wrote on his blog about the 3 Philly Funnymen You Absolutely, Positively Should Be Following on Twitter. Check it out.

Doogie Horner has been updating his blog, KGB Yard Sale more frequently. Just today, he posted a skit, a sketch (drawing) and some words of inspiration.

Luke Giordano has found time out from his new job as a writer for Two and a Half Men to keep updating his website Everything You Like is Stupid. His latest post is inspired by LA traffic.

The latest episode of  Darryl Charles and James Hesky’s CheaPodcast features special guest Brendan Kennedy – fresh off consuming some of the “pickle back” shots he made famous (perhaps infamous) with their appearance in his Sketch-Up or Shut-Up performance.

Also in the podcast world, The Holding Court Podcast continues to release episodes even in the NBA offseason, because, really, Gregg Gethard and Aaron Hertzog don’t need much actual basketball play to keep their discussion alive.

The first round of the Philly’s Phunniest Person Contest continued last night at Helium Comedy Club, with Pat House, Tommy Pope and David Ray Agyekum moving on to the semi-finals.
