Variety Comedy: The Monthly Hour

Thursday, March 7, 2013, 10:00 PM

Part late-night talk show, part stand-up showcase, and mostly one giant desperate attempt to get the approval of others, “The Monthly Hour with James Hesky” brings some of Philadelphia’s top talent to the Philly Improv Theater to help you catch up on all the major (and minor) events of the month. Each month, Hesky (CheaPodcast, The Gross Show) and his merry band of writers will recap the month through stand-up, sketch, video and interviews with top newsmakers (or completely made up no-names). “The Monthly Hour” will also provide an opportunity for the city’s best comedians and sketch groups to perform and show filmed sketches at one of South Philadelphia’s most historic BYOB theaters that holds fewer than 100 people. So come out on the first Thursday of every month and see the show that has been described as “kind of like ‘Saturday Night Live’ and ‘The Daily Show’” by James’ dad. You won’t regret it. Unless you come to the show instead of being with a friend or family member who is terminally ill. Then you’ll almost definitely regret it. Forever.
