It’s been a brutal election season. Are we ready to laugh again? Hope so, because in Philly, November is comedy month. Coming on the heels of the Improv Festival, the annual Philly Sketchfest will celebrate the art of the written comedic word with local acts like Animosity Pierre, Camp Woods and the Mask & Wig Club — as well as some groups coming in from NYC, like MacCloskey & Myers and Desperate Times. Don’t miss Tuesday’s Dirtiest Sketch in Philadelphia competition. Will The Feeko Brothers take first place for the third consecutive year? Check Ryan Carey's Critical Mass comedy column, LOL With It, for continuous Comedy Month coverage.
Mon.-Sat., Nov. 12-17, $10-$15 ($70 for a full week of shows), Independence Foundation Black Box, 1412 Chestnut St., 267-441-4780, phlcomedy.com.
