The tour starts with Helium Comedy Club, Philly comedy's pride and joy, which hosts some of the biggest names in stand up comedy and the best local talent every week. Across the street in the Adrienne Theater we'll find Philly Improv Theater and Comedy Sportz, the best places to see improv comedy in the city. From there we'll work our way over to Chinatown and the new home of Good Good Comedy Theater, where local and traveling comics put on stand up shows, game shows, variety shows, and more. On the way we can cover some of the history of comedy in Philly and comedians who had their start here. Down on South Street we will find the old site of the Laff House, where mega star Kevin Hart first started comedy. Your tour guide, Joe, is an active stand up comedian in the Philly scene who performs regularly at Helium, hosts a monthly show at Good Good Comedy Theater, and does shows and festivals all over the country.
