I was staying near here on a solo vacation. One night I had nothing to do, so I decided to take in a sketch show. The show was OK. I thought some of the concepts were things I'd seen before and some of the performers...More

Ok so the few nitpicky negatives: They don't sell beer or wine so you have to BYO. Parking is a little rough around Rittenhouse so you can spring for a lot or park a few blocks away and huff it over. Other than that, this...More

Hey Joe, Thanks for saying how much you enjoy our shows. It's true that parking can be tricky in the area, and we've taken a small step to help: if you visit our directions page at http://phitcomedy.com/about/directions/ we've got a helpful link to the site...More
