Monday night during CHIP CHANTRY’S ONE MAN SHOW, the night was dedicated to roasting one of Philadelphia’s dearest darlings… MEG FAVREAU, who soon departs for Los Angeles.
For those who are kicking themselves for missing it, the PHILLY IMPROV THEATER was kind enough to get the whole thing on video for posterity.
Below is the start of the roast. You can check out the rest in 14 parts on PHIT’s YouTube channel
GREGG GETHARD is back tonight with his monthly comedy showcase BEDTIME STORIES. The theme this month is Orphans of SugarHouse. According to Gethard, the show is about the “soulcrushing world of Philadelphia’s new casino, a land where children are left in cars and beer is thrown on the floor.”
We’ll see new sketches and videos from the likes of Meg & Rob, HateSpeechCommittee, and many others.

Gregg Gethard’s BEDTIME STORIES returns tonight with a special theme: The Prom.
“Remember the glory days of wearing a suit you grew out of minutes later. Remember the glory days of realizing you unintentionally looked “whorish” in your dress. Remember the glory days of how you didn’t even go because no girl would even talk to you.”
Join some of Philly’s top comedic talent as they explore this monumental adolescent event through a mix of multimedia and live sketches.

Zach Ward just posted this video over at the Mister Diplomat blog, and it’s nothing short of fabulous. Rebecca Drysdale (of Baby Wants Candy and renowned for her comedy tours of Chicago, NYC, LA and Amsterdam) rocks as Beck D… laying down this lyrically brilliant serenade for the cast of the L Word.
I’ve watched Becky throw out some amazing lyrics off the cuff for BWC, but this is really a whole other level. Running over 5 minutes, I’m still wanting more. I only wish I would have seen this much sooner, as it’s been up since July of last year. But beware, this is ridiculously NOT SAFE FOR WORK.
My jaw dropped to the floor at the :10 mark…
I’m in love with the following mashup tribute to the Cohen Brothers’ body of work. It does a great job of framing their ability to communicate both through wide cinematic tones and more subtly nuanced themes. As a big fan of about everything Joel and Ethan Cohen touch, I think this is simply gorgeous.
I’ve just come across an incredibly dangerous list: Nerve and IFC have created a list of the 50 Greatest Comedy Sketches of All Time.
They’re pretty comprehensive… The annuls of Python, SNL, KITH, The State, Mr. Show, SCTV, Chappelle’s Show, Carol Burnett, Catherine Tate, Your Show of Shows… you’ll see them all on this list.
But what makes this particular list an utter time vacuum? They all have the videos embedded right there.
What are you doing inside watching awesome videos? It’s pretty outside… go play.
For some time now, it’s become apparent that there’s two types of people in this world – those who love Sarah Silverman, and those who hate her. I’m personally of the adoring former; her humor just cracks me up.
If you happened to miss Jimmy Kimmel’s show last week where he had sweetheart Silverman on as a guest, then you haven’t seen this song. For awhile now, Kimmel has had a long running joke going on where he messes with Matt Damon, ending the show right before Matt’s supposed to take the guest chair. This came to a head awhile back, resulting in Matt blowing a gasket.
With all that in mind, now enjoy this VERY VERY NOT SAFE FOR WORK clip:
