Founding Footsteps offers BYOB trolley tours through the city.

Founding Footsteps, which created the BYOB historic trolley tour, has come up with a new idea. Beginning Sept. 1, the company will run the Stand-Up & Drink Tour. 

During the trolley tour, comedians perform in between bar stops. There will be three comedians and three bars (with happy-hour pricing).

Participants meet at Yards Brewing Co., where they can pick up beers to take on the Founding Footsteps trolley. 

On the way to Barcade, the first comedian performs for about 20 minutes.  Then, tour guests enjoy 45 minutes to an hour at the bar/arcade before hopping back on the trolley for the second 20-minute comedy act.

The next stop will be Garage. After an hour at the bar, the trolley tour will wind its way back to Yards. The third and last comic will provide the entertainment.

Pat House, Jessa Reed and Chip Chantry are the three seasoned comedians who will perform.

Tickets are $40 per person, but if you enter PHILLYVOICE under promo code online you will receive 15 percent off.

Arrive at Yards no later than 6:30 p.m., as the trolley will depart promptly at 7.
