Phillyist Interview…The Philly Sketchfest

Money Shot:

Do you think other cities take Philly seriously when it comes to comedy?
I think we’re below the radar at this point. It’s not so much that people don’t think we have a good comedy scene, it’s that they don’t know if we have one at all. A lot of stand-ups love to play Philly, and we draw the big names all the time. It’s the local heroes that need to get on the map. Which is what we’re joining you and other promoters in trying to accomplish. And we will, because there are dozens of hilarious performers in this town. People who make you laugh till it hurts.
