Main Street Comedy: Bringing Funny Back

It’s been a month since I’ve last seen the hilarious crew from Main Street Comedy. Their performances never cease to amaze me and I’m honored to call them…people I’ve met. The lineup is always changing which makes each show interesting and new. This month’s theme was “Bike Race Fever,” to piggyback on the upcoming drunken shit-show that is Philadelphia’s cycling competition.

The show was, as always, at Mad River on Main Street in Manayunk; and hosted by the lovely and exotic, H. Foley. Foley managed the room wonderfully and introduced some comedians who weren’t in the lineup the previous month such as Danny Ozark, Ian Fidance, James Hesky, Jack Martin, Ryan Shaner, and Subhah Agarwal.

The comic styles were all over the map, which certainly kept things fresh; from dick and fart jokes to delightful faux-racism.

Here are some great clips from a perfect night of stand-up. Don’t forget to join us next time (every 1st Wednesday at Mad River) or every Thursday night at Raven Lounge in Center City Philadelphia.
