A 36 hour comedy marathon beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, November 28th will feature local comedy talent as part of Philly Comedy Month’s City Spotlight. The marathon will be hosted by the Hey, We’re Cool gang.
One of producer Brian Kelly’s goals for the marathon is to get many different theaters/revues/shows/performers in Philadelphia represented in the line-up so as to spread awareness about them to folks who may not know they exist.
Says Kelly, “The Black Friday Comedy Marathon is a big deal to me. I’m super excited and honored that Phit agreed to do it, that we have the hilarious Hey, We’re Cool hosting the marathon, and that I get to work on making it a reality with some truly amazing people.”
But they need performers! To submit your act for participation, visit Black Friday Comedy Marathon’s “submit your act” page.
In addition, Phit will be allying with small businesses in Philly; partnering businesses will be able to offer free admission to customers who shop at their stores beginning the Monday of Thanksgiving week (11/24), through Small Business Saturday (11/29).
If you know a local shop that would like to participate, send them to the Partner Your Business page.
