The Ministry of Secret Jokes

For the monthly stand-up showcase, host Doogie Horner—Philly’s reigning king of comedy—is accompanied by a rotating cast of comics who engage in a variety of ridiculous of games like a pie-eating contest in which the comedians have to tell pie jokes while scarfing down pie or a “Worst Best Man” speech competition. They once even placed “moles” into the audience to heckle the comics. Though their games often engage the audience’s participation, everyone must take an oath before the show not to reveal any of their jokes.

Second or third Wed. of the month. 8pm. Free. Fergie’s Pub, 1214 Sansom St. 215.928.8118. fergiespub.com
