Move over, Paddy's Pub. A Philadelphia suburb is the latest to achieve comedic notoriety. 

"Delco Proper," the series about three buddies from Delaware County, has been picked up by Comedy Central as a web series, and new episodes are coming soon, according to the show's Twitter account. 

A spokesperson for Comedy Central said that three new episodes have been ordered. 

The show originally had its pilot debut for the cable network's website in July. Entitled "The Funeral," three buddies from Delco attend the funeral of a friend they went to high school with.

The guys all have quite nefarious reasons for going. Watch it here (Disclaimer: Video contains strong and potentially offensive material)

The show comes from the minds of Philadelphia-based comedians Tommy PopeTim Butterly, and John McKeever of the comedy group Deer Prom. 

They've made a name for themselves with a series of Youtube videos under the name Bird Text. Some of the group's more famous shorts include "The Real Househusbands of Philadelphia" and a tribute to former Phillies player Pat Burrell's personal escapades
