Philly's Phunniest Contest, 8/12

We are into Day 6 of Helium's Philly's Phunniest contest and after tonight there are only two more nights of preliminary competition.

Tonight's crowd was packed almost to capacity, which is a little surprising considering it was a Tuesday night. But surprising in a good way, of course. Highlights:

- Tommy Papa (no, not Tom Papa, the national headlining comedian. That wouldn't be fair.) got a great response from the audience mainly with jokes about his mother and father. He made them sound unique, yet people could relate to them.

- Richie Redding compared MP3s today to taping songs of the radio in the past. Call it a comical trip down memory lane and the crowd ate it up.

- There were yet more teachers taking the stage, tonight it was Paul Lyons and Carl Boccuti. For some reason, teachers have an uncontrollable urge to get in front of crowds of strangers and tell jokes.

- Pat House explained why he chose Temple (it's a Philadelphia university, for those of you that don't know) and shared the taunts that he got for his last name.

- Laurence Mullaney brought a lot of energy as he talked about his 3-year anniversary with his girlfriend and celebrated the fact that they still weren't married. But was it enough to go on to the next round?

Ladies and Gentlemen, the comedians going on to the semi-finals from this show are Richie Redding, Tommy Papa and Laurence Mullaney.

Check back tomorrow for more results!

Phun Philly's Phunniest Phact: Richie Redding is the only comic to advance to the semifinals in all three years of the contest's existence. I think. Somebody please correct me if I am wrong.

I think you're right Pat. I'm pretty good at this Phunniest trivia. Chip can duplicate it this week.

If Chip Chantry advances this year, I will eat my hat.

(My hat is made of cookies and I really want to eat it.)
