While the season of giving can be full of festive events and holiday fun, it can also become stressful and expensive. Combat both with cheap comedy this December.
Find innovate sketches, experimental new comedy, roasts, and a wide range of upcoming shows with Good Good Comedy. Search through the line-up from Thursday, Dec. 10 until Friday, Dec. 18 to find one that suits your humor.
"Ur Mom is Funny" showcases three comedians who want to prove that teaming up with their moms will get the most laughs. "Eat Your Beats" is a rap battle food fight where comedians need quick tongues and culinary skills to win. "Weeding Out the Stoned," asks the audience to figure out which of 15 comedians on stage is sober through field sobriety tests, audience testimony, and trivia questions. Prizes will be given out once the mystery is solved. "Burn it Down: The Roast of SEPTA" is exactly what it sounds like but at the end of the show is a bonus skit. The comedians will roast ex's of the audience.
Besides those four, there are more shows available throughout the month. Venues and times vary for each skit, but all are only $5 and within seven miles of Philadelphia.
