On a budget but need a great laugh? Well, the fifth ever Five Dollar Comedy Week starts this Sunday 5/21 in the fifth month of the year and each show is only five dollars! So many fives, it’s practically a fake phone number in a goshdang TV sitcom.
Five Dollar Comedy Week debuts unique, independent shows in Philadelphia that meld all forms of comedy and performance into one incredible weeklong festival – and each one is just five measly bucks! Plus bizarre and immersive workshops, FREE secret shows every weeknight and so much more.
Tickets and full schedule available here: www.fivedollarcomedyweek.com. All shows are $5 and take place at Good Good Comedy Theatre (215 N. 11th St) in the heart of Philly’s Chinatown. Attached are photos and a promo image for the festival.
Sun 5/21 at 8:30 PM – Comedy Accompanied
Stand-up comedy and jazz – the two truly American art forms that people claim to enjoy but watch Netflix instead of attending. Now you can see them both at once!
Fri 5/26 at 7 PM – Lyfted
An evening of stories from our city’s favorite Lyft drivers. They’ll take you on a ride, without even opening your car-share app.
Fri 5/26 at 11:30 PM – Tragedy + Time
A show that attempts to answer the questions “Does Comedy = Tragedy + Time?” by forcing comedians to alchemize short lectures on some of the most tragic events in history into comedic gold. Educational, emotional, and hopefully funny (if our math checks out).
Sat 5/27 at 5 PM – Finding Your Fetish
Why so sad? Are you living a kink free life? Let The New Dreamz find your fetish! Is it in a shoe? Is it in a whisper? Everybody has a thing that is their thing. We will find it and ride it to the moon! Taught by Andrew Jeffrey Wright & Rose Luardo.
Sat 5/27 at 8:30 PM – Dark Window
Technology is evil, and it must be stopped. Everyone these days walks around with their “phones” and “tablets” and “Nintendo GameBoys,” but no one connects anymore, or invites me, Ari Fishbein, to their parties, because they’re too busy living their “Second Lifes” and “Runescapes” on “Antisocial media.” So I’ve decided to tell a heavy-handed story about the dangers of staring at those blank screens… those Dark Windows.
…it’s a Black Mirror spoof, okay?
