TONIGHT: Christian Finnegan at Helium

Tonight (and only tonight), New York comic Christian Finnegan visits Helium as part of his "Au Contraire" tour. Earlier this month his new CD and DVD stand-up special of the same name was released and there's a Philadelphia connection. It was shot over two shows last October at The Trocadero in Chinatown.

To promote the special, Finnegan filmed the "Jokespirations" series in which host Rolly Chedwick interviews real people to get "to the nitty-gritty of what makes a brilliant comedy mind like Christian's tick." Here's the first one with a real-life pole vaulter.
