Dirtiest Sketch in Philadelphia Competition
From bestiality to bodily fluids, nothing is off limits as the best sketch comics in town compete once again to deliver the sickest/funniest material they can conceive. Expect local troupes ManiPedi, Secret Pants and Camp Woods to really up the ick factor this year in hopes of unseating reigning champs, Billy Bob Thompson and Christian Alsis (aka The Feeko Brothers), who have now taken home the trophy two years in a row. Last year, the duo set a new bar for awesomely distasteful comedy with a sketch that entailed deep throating a variety of lollipops (in a few different positions) and a spit jar that was passed through the audience. So, if you have a weak stomach, this may or may not be one show you want to skip. Fortunately, the competition marks the second night of the 5th Annual Philly Sketchfest, which will be hosting slightly less offensive shows each night through Nov. 16. -N.F.
8pm. $10-$20. Prince Music Theater, 1412 Chestnut St. 267.441.4780. phlcomedy.com
