 Show Time is Friday, December 23rd at The Laff House Comedy Club, Show starts at 8:30 PM. Doors Open at 8PM

 

In celebration of the holidays and this website’s official one-year anniversary, “It’s Always Funny in Philadelphia" will beIt’s Always Funny in Philadelphia throwing a special event to benefit wounded soldiers of the United States Armed Forces. As a person who has a great deal of close friends who have served for our country, it would only be right to show our appreciation for their service.
 

Unfortunately, health care plans for U.S. military personnel can be more complicated than anticipated, leaving many soldiers with little options for obtaining quality medical attention. The Wounded Warrior Project has been working with U.S. soldiers in order to provide the medical attention that they need and absolutely deserve.

I have been fortunate enough to grab a great line-up of comedians, both close business associates and personal friends.John Moses
 

The headlining comedian for this show will be the hilarious John Moses! Due to scheduling conflicts at the previous “always funny” show, many weren’t able to come see him, but here’s your chance!

John Moses is known as very funny comic who is climbing the comedy ladder at an incredibly fast pace. Honest and fast-paced, John’s comedy will constantly take you by surprise with “did-he-really-just-say-that” punchlines.

 
 

The featured comedian will be none other than Philly comic and my personal friend, Monroe Martin. Monroe started hisMonroe Martin comedy career in Philadelphia until he made the big move to New York where he is now making a huge impact with his set, opening for comedians such as Keith Robinson, Joe Derosa, and Godfrey. Nobody can vouch for Monroe’s set better than myself. Watching his career escalate over the past two years has been not only impressive, but personally inspiring.

Joining the line-up will be the very kind and generous “Comedians for a Cause” organization. Known as a comedy group that throws comedy shows for noble causes, they were first on my list of comedians to call considering the stature of the cause. Comedians Joe Mayo and Mike Rainey will be performing for comedians for a cause. Check out Monroe Martin's video here.

 

Online tickets are now on sale at this link. Guest spots will be given to select comedians who will be personally contacted by myself.

Those who wish to donate more can do so on our Wounded Warrior Project page.

Every donation counts and is greatly appreciated.

This show is a special event and will be held on a friday night instead of our regularly scheduled Wednesday show.

For Dexter fans, this season and last have lacked the edge-of-your seat thrill that the first four offered. It seems the writers are trying too hard to do too many things instead of focusing on one really good theme each time. 'Dexter' Season 6 Episode 10 Recap: 'Ricochet Rabbit'
 
Season 6 seems to focus on religion, throwing in the racy and raunchy with Quinn’s storyline, as well as Angel’s sister Jamie and her love for the intern Louis. And last but not least, bringing Trinity and Brian back to try and give everyone that thrill they are looking for with each show. The other thing they are doing, like it or not, is preparing for the end.
 
That’s right, there are three episodes left of season 6, and the series is slated to end after season 8. There are hints and tips leading to the many possible endings, one of which came during ‘Ricochet Rabbit’ when Deb discusses how Travis’ sister had no idea who or how awful her brother is and Dexter nonchalantly said, “Well maybe she didn’t know.”

The show was the same way many have been this season. The team found the church, and inside Deb had a panic attack. She went to her therapist to say she associates churches with funerals and that’s why it happened.

Angel and Quinn argued about Quinn’s actions as he has been acting like a child, while Anderson realizes that Travis has had mental issues his whole life and possibly killed his parents.

Dexter does his usual duties for the team and on the side is pursuing Holly, the ‘whore’ that Travis freed because he knows that is Travis’ next move. He figures out she’s on a boat and realizes by visiting the security office and seeing the surveillance tape that Travis took out to sea. In true Dexter fashion, he pretends to be the boat owner and calls on-star for the coordinates.

What Dexter doesn’t know is that Travis has helpers on the boat- Doomsday Killer (DDK) followers who want to help named Dorsey and Beth. Travis convinces the couple they must prove themselves if they want to reap the rewards of God. On the boat, Dorsey is set to do the kill and Beth has to leave.

At Dexter’s apartment, Louis is with Jamie awaiting Dexter’s return home so he can get Dexter’s input on his new video game. Louis shows Dexter that the game lets people choose which serial killer they want to be, and Dexter tells him it’s not good to promote that because it’s sick and wrong!

Meanwhile, Quinn is MIA, so Angel heads to the home of Dorsey and Beth since Louis saw they posted some strange videos on the DDK blog. When he gets there, Beth plays dumb and says they were joking with DDK. As Angel gets ready to leave, he turns to ask  why there are books about the Resurrection on their shelf if it’s such a joke. Then out of nowhere, Travis knocks Angel out, picks up his police shield and decides Wormwood should happen at Miami Metro HQ!

Back at HQ, Deb looks at the case LaGuerta has been asking her to close. She sees that the victim was delivered flowers the day she died. When Deb calls the shop that sent them, she finds out Chief Matthews sent them. Matthews asks her to have dinner, but we haven’t seen what happens yet!

Finally, Dexter gets to the yacht, which is docked in a different location. He sees someone on the boat in a hazmat suit and stabs the person in the chest, as he thinks it’s Travis. Turns out it’s Dorsey, who exclaims that Dexter is too late and Wormwood can’t be stopped. Dexter finds Holly’s body holding the anchor down in the water and the materials used to make the poison gas. He shows his grown up side by dialing in an anonymous tip with the boats location.

Dexter airs Sunday nights at 9pm on Showtime, and if you’re too busy watching Sunday Night Football to tune in, there is an encore presentation Monday nights at 9pm.

The Duke Avatar

Cop killers, bleeding heart liberals, anarchists, and leftists it's time to rejoice! Your cop killing hero Mumia Abu-Jamal will no longer face execution.

Philadelphia District Attorney Seth Williams announced that they would no longer push for Abu-Jamal's execution after his death sentence was overturned earlier this year. When the U.S. Supreme Court decided against intervening, it was the nail in the coffin. Mumia Abu-Jamal's death sentence had been put to death.

Thus, Williams consulted with Office Daniel Faulkner's wife Maureen and got her OK.

Maureen Faulkner is obviously pretty upset that this is the "closure" she was looking for since her husband was gunned down 30 years ago. Instead of receiving proper justice and being executed by the state, he will now die in prison - barring a release from prison or being broken out by a pack of anarchists.

Abu-Jamal who obviously was the one who killed her husband has had his ass saved by liberals and activist judges who pander to the bleeding hearts.

It is a pretty sad state of affairs when a cop killer can use the ignorance of liberal sheep here and abroad (like the French) to save his ass. Abu-Jamal has built a cottage industry around his so-called struggle against the American Justice System. Abu-Jamal has published memoirs, appeared on the radio, and brainwashed millions of people around the globe into believing the justice system is evil, not himself.

When you consider all the FACTS in the Abu-Jamal case it's completely assanine that he won't be executed. If he were so "innocent" like these liberal idiots believe then why the hell was a gun registered to him located on the sidewalk by Office Faulkner's dead body?

For those of you interested in watching a documentary grounded in truth, then check out the Mumia Abu-Jamal documentary made by Tigre Hill.

What is even more sickening is that this isn't good enough for many on the left and the bandana-wearing anarchist types. They think this monster should be freed.

Apparently logic and facts don't matter to these people. There's no sense in reasoning with people like that.

You would have been better off trying to convince a witch hunter in Salem Massachusetts that they were really drowning an actual human being.

Philadelphia, PA

Philadelphia – On December 10 & 11, 2011, Plays & Players presents vintage old time radio goodness live at Plays & Players. And what holiday season would be complete without It’s a Wonderful Life!? Featuring live music & Foley sound effects at each performance, Hear Again Radio combines the best of radio with the magic of live theater.
Don’t miss Hear Again Radio Project perform Lux Radio Theater’s It’s a Wonderful Life and other holiday treats that are sure to be fun for the whole family.

“Lux Radio Theater would routinely invite the greatest stars of Hollywood to re-live the roles that they made famous on the silver screen, live before an audience of enthusiastic fans. Just like we do with Hear Again,” says Darin J Dunston, founder of Hear Again Radio Project. “The story of George Bailey and It’s a Wonderful Life has been a part of my family’s holiday tradition for years, and we look forward to sharing it with other families to create a new Christmas tradition.”

The 60-minute live show differs from the movie in just a few ways. Those who are familiar with the Frank Capra film will notice the subtle changes made for the radio soundscape: like how Zuzu’s petals become Zuzu’s bell.  How else does differ it, you ask?  You’ll just have to come HEAR for yourself.

In honor of the holiday spirit Plays and Players is selling group tickets to see the show so you can bring the whole family and save. Normally $12-$15, groups of 5 or more can now buy tickets at only $10 each! (http://playsandplayers.tix.com)

Did you see it coming?

That’s the question fans were talking about after episode 9. The show started out with Dexter and Travis in the old abandoned church. Dexter was trying to find out what Gellar’s next move would be as he pressed Travis for details. Travis however, claimed to know little about Gellar’s agenda. Dexter saw that a painting had ‘2LOT’ written on it. Since Travis was not useful in deciphering the meaning, Dexter started looking it up and figured out a professor at a school in Miami is a crusader for the 2LOT, a connection to atheism. Dexter set Travis up at a hotel to keep him safe and told him to stay put for now.Dexter Photo: Randy Tepper: Showtime
 
At Miami Metro, Deb’s met with her psychiatrist, who suggests they meet more than once a week after Deb talks about her history with her father and her relationship with Brian. In the briefing room, Quinn is a no-show and Masuka discloses that Quinn was probably hurting after a late night at the strip club, where he was proposing to strippers.
 
Being the good partner he is, Angel heads to Quinns, and when he is ready to do some detective work, Quinn realizes his gun is missing!  The duo head to the ‘hot strippers’ house to see if Quinn left his gun in her car where the deed took place. When they knock on the door a young girl answers and says, ‘oh you must mean my mom.’ Quinn and Angel are shocked at the less than modelesque woman who he was with last night, and Quinn begs Angel to stay silent.

Meanwhile, Gellar’s blog has been updated for the first time in ages, and Masuka’s intern Louis tells Deb he can look at the IP address to see where Gellar might be hiding out. It works, and the team ends up in a park not too far from the abandoned church. This will surely evolve in the few remaining episodes!

When Deb gets back to her office, the father of the woman who was killed last week (the ‘overdose’ case LaGuerta urged Deb to close) is at Deb’s desk pleading for her to reopen the investigation. Deb tells LaGuerta she’s going to open it. The audience later sees LaGuerta telling the chief it’s out of her hands, and that he picked Deb for the job.

Dexter heads to the Miami school and finds Professor Casey. He tells Casey he thinks he’s in danger, but Casey dismisses the warning! Dexter heads to the abandoned church and sets a kill-room up for Gellar. He picks up Travis and they stakeout the office building where Casey works so they can intercept Gellar before he gets to Casey. Travis tells Dexter he sees Gellar and when they enter the building, Dexter tells Travis to stay put while he hops on an elevator. He gets stuck and figures Gellar is on to him! Casey ends up dead and his hand is missing. He’s found in his classroom and buckets of his blood pour onto the detectives when they move the body!

Later, Dexter asks Travis why he got involved. Travis tells Dexter that Gellar convinced him they were chosen by God. Dexter tells Travis they may have missed Gellar at the University, but they can respond to his blog to get him to come out from hiding. Travis wakes up to find Casey’s hand in his hotel bathroom and writing on the wall that says ‘Bring the False Prophet to the Church.’

Travis gets Dexter to the church but doesn’t mention the message. The plan is for Travis to go in first and Dexter to sneak in later. When Dexter enters he finds Travis on the ground, and it looks like he’s been struck in the head.  Dexter starts looking for Gellar, goes down a trap door and finds a frozen Gellar, who has apparently been dead for some time!!! Travis is back on his feet a floor above, and a puzzled Dexter looks as though he can’t imagine Travis has killed all these people.

With three episodes left, it will be a roller coaster ride of where this can go!

Dexter airs Sunday nights at 9pm on Showtime, and if you’re too busy watching Sunday Night Football to tune in, there is an encore presentation Monday nights at 9pm.

Over Thanksgiving, I got to hang out with my grandparents who just recently hit 60 years of marriage.  It’s a milestone I know I’ll never reach because I would have had to have gotten married last Thursday to do so. This all started me thinking about the concept of being old fashioned, and what did my grandparents generation NOT do which mine so obviously does, and I concluded with the games we play. Phenique photo: drugstore.com 

Just think about it, a text message at 2:41 in the am is enough of a “bat signal” to have all the girlfriends gather for lunch the next day and dissect the covert meaning. We spend hours and justified calories discussing the perfect “next move.”  

Ladies, you KNOW what I’m talking about here. A move that will convey your obvious interest but still come off aloof enough to spare any (inevitable) embarrassment. All of this energy wasted on boys, who in a nutshell, took the cowards avenue towards a woman. There are so many men (emphasis on the word “MEN”) out there who aren’t interested in wasting your time, or theirs for that matter, with vague tactics if their intentions are beyond a bang.

Save this energy and put it to better use. Take that energy and learn how to Dougie, anything other than playing into a game where everyone walks away confused, going in circles, and eventually left with holding onto nothing more than words. It’s like me playing a game of Monopoly. I believe I have never once finished an entire game of Monopoly in my life. This does not make me a quitter, it just translates to my personal inability to continue in circles when all I have to show for it after a few rounds are bank transactions and hotel stays. The concept for me very quickly gets old, and that’s where I see myself now.  Monopoly Man: amnesta.net

Sure, I can look back on some interesting “games” I’ve played myself or seen played. One of my personal favorites include my friend staging a “Leave Behind” (Author’s note: think back to Seinfeld circa 1994) where she left her tube of Campho-Phenique, just so she could have a second visit at her crushes house. If you don’t know what Campho-Phenique, is Google it and then you will understand why this was, as my friend called it, “the worst leave behind ever. Ever.”   

When did games get so not-fun?  I don’t recall a moment in my life where I burst into tears at the thought of a challenging game of Hungry-Hungry Hippo’s (unless someone already called the Pink Hippo).  



Here’s what I say; change the game. Make the game fun again. Think back to the times of high school candy grams. A moment where you caught a glance of one another, but you didn’t really mean to look at each other, and you do that shy look away thing like the floppy eared dog in Lady and the Tramp. Those are the moments!  The games where no one lost, where there was fun in the flirting and not ambition.

You’re not playing with little plastic hotels and houses, metal cars, or money sporting a monegal anymore.  When your heart and reputation is on the line, the stakes are higher and the risk is greater. So take the extra time to notice where your energy is going and really ask if it’s wasted on a game, or if you think it may be re-evaluate and take back your worth.  You cost a hell of a lot more then you know, regardless of how many times they pass go.  

Believe me.  

Ladies, ever wonder where the phrase "tapped that" originated?  Fella's, ever wonder if girls had slumber parties with nighties and pillow fights?  Yeah, well me too.  The Vagina MonoBlogs takes a proactive but honest point of view on some of these timeless questions and offers some perspectives to apply...or avoid for that matter!
