News In Brief

09/24/2010

We’ve been out of the loop over here through most of the Fringe and beyond. Now that we’ve sufficiently recovered, regular posts will resume next week. In the meantime, here are a few tidbits to check out…

  • Many have called the last few months the Summer of Doogie, and it’s sure felt that way, with Mr. Horner joking his way into America’s hearts on America’s Got Talent. And now fresh off his win over a Helium, the newly crowned Philly’s Phunniest looks to return to the stage tonight, as he resurrects his show The Ministry of Secret Jokes. Now at its new home at the Ruba Club, joining Doogie will be fellow former Phunniest winners Anton Shuford and Steve Gerben, as well as Amir Golan and Becca Trabin. It all starts at 8PM
  • The ever-delightful Jaime Fountaine returns to The Dive tonight at 7PM with her show Toiling in Obscurity. Guests include Pat Kelly, Tom McCallister and Jesse Hale Moore

Second Stories tonight at The Dive

08/10/2010

We’ve come upon the second Tuesday of the month, and it’s time for another installment of SECOND STORIES hosted by the always charmingly endearing JAIME FOUNTAINE.

This month’s show is entitled Kill Yr Idols, an evening of stories about our heroes and “how they’ve failed us, redeemed themselves, and remained untouchable, even when touched.”

Featured storytellers include Jan Cohen, Ilana Heilweil reading the work of her husband Gregg Gethard and of course Fountaine herself.

Amuseday Tuesday: Roast-O-Wheel

06/08/2010

The Rant-O-Wheel is back, and it’s turning up the heat in South Philly! Tonight, SECOND STORIES and PJI take over The Dive to present ROAST-O-WHEEL: A Tribute to Steve Manheart.

Just like past editions of this improvised storytelling series, participants are given three nouns, chosen at random by the wheel.  Each person has 5 minutes or less to include all three in a story.

So how’s this different, you ask? This time, there’s a caveat… all stories must be about, or involve Steve Manheart! Who is Steve? Well he’s a dear friend of the show, who is departing Philadelphia.  Don’t know Steve? That’s just dandy! Knowing him is not required, nor is it encouraged for participation. Head on out and help roast Steve… it’s guaranteed he won’t know what hit him.

ROAST-O-WHEEL: A TRIBUTE TO STEVE MANHEART
PRESENTED BY SECOND STORIES & PJI
TUESDAY, JUNE 8TH | DOORS @ 7PM
THE DIVE | 947 E PASSYUNK AVE
FREE | 21+
