It was exactly one year ago that we put up our first post: a video interview with local comedian Anton Shuford. What was at first just a video podcast of Philadelphia comedy exploded into a multi-media website with interviews, photos, news, columns, reviews or more stuff. We screened Doug Benson's Super High Me before it hit stores and today we have our own stand-up show and have been on the cover of Time! Ok, that last one isn't true. Yet!
And what's in the works for next year, you say? We'll have a re-designed look, some new features, new columns and some other big surprises. More, more, and more.
We'd like to specifically thank Doogie Horner for the artwork (today's his birthday too!), Gregg Gethard for his writing, everyone else that has contributed to the cause and Rashanda La Beats for putting up with all of this goddamn bullshit. Oh yes, and all of the comedians of Philadelphia that making this worth doing.
[Confetti-filled balloons fall from the ceiling, the crowd can't stop rhythmically clapping. Wow, they are really going all-out with this, it's only a freakin' website.]
To REALLY celebrate, after the jump we've compiled a list of our favorite and most popular posts from the last year.
Seriously, thanks for reading this thing. It's been fun.
