“There appears to be an endless amount of poor literature out there,” said Brendan Kennedy, the host of Guilty Pleasures, a monthly comedy show that shows the good in the bad.

On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong made one big leap for mankind as he walked upon the moon. Forty years later, local comedian Chip Chantry is hosting a comedy show dedicated to the moon landing. But he’s not doing it out of any dreams of personal space travel. It’s all about timely pragmatism. “Do I have any fascination with the moon landing? No. None whatsoever. Frankly, I am still not convinced the entire thing was not staged. This month's show just happens to land (pun intended) on the 40th anniversary of man first walking on the moon,” Chantry said.

Roxborough is one of Philly’s most family-friendly neighborhoods. It is a part of the city where older brothers take younger brothers to baseball games, a  place where moms take their daughters out for shopping sprees, a place where senior citizens gather for Bingo nights and, as made clear by the Morris family, it is a place where father and son can perform a comedy show together.

Usually, a mention of the phrase “PowerPoint” brings dark thoughts about boring office or classroom presentations. But not to Jon Goff, who has made his mark by somehow turning a Microsoft Office application into a comedic medium

Chris Cotton says Philadelphia comedy is at an interesting stage of evolution. “I think that we’re still in a childhood state, but we’re about to become adults,” Cotton said. “If you were to put it in human age terms, we’re about 13.”
