BULLY PULPITS, MILKBOYS, AND DUOS: Local Comedy News

There's a new show in Ardmore at the Milkboy Coffee Acoustic Cafe run by stand-up Nolan Gilbride. LAST LAUGH will run every last Monday of the month, which means we just missed the first one this past Monday. The next show will be October 27th. "I want the show to be a venue for the Philadelphia comics to do a longer set. I think the city should have more rooms where comics can work on a 20-30 minute set," says Nolan.

NYC comic Dave Hill made his Philadelphia debut at BEDTIME STORIES in May (we asked him some questions then) and he'll back in town with his explosion next week (we'll have more info on that later). But that's not all, his Myspace page has scheduled for a few dates in December as well. HMMM!

Philly Sketchfest is presenting DUOS, a night of comedy duos at Helium on Thursday, October 23rd. Animosity Pierre, Meg & Rob and Dave & Brian are performing along with host Pat House. It's all done "in the grand tradition of classic comedy duos such as Abbott & Costello, The Smothers Brothers and Laurel & Hardy, and in the footsteps of modern masters like Tenacious D."

Speaking of Meg & Rob, their "Fog Of Love" video was a finalist in the Sketchfest Seattle video contest. Sadly, they did not win.

Recently Seth MacFarlane picked Secret Pants' "Bush Or Batman" as one of his favorite Youtube videos. You may know MacFarlane as the guy that created 'Family Guy'. Yeah, that Seth MacFarlane.

Luke Giordano presents Stand Up at the Bully Pulpit, a stand-up show at The Stein Auditorium on Drexel's campus on Friday, October 24th. Luke's website also includes his diary in the trenches of the NYC open mics.
