Let the local and legendary entertainment shenanigans commence fresh for your Monday and beyond. Let’s do it…all.
The Importance of Being Earnest So, just what is the importance of being earnest? Better yet, what’s the meaning of this crazy little thing called life?

Miss Northeast Comedy Queen Pageant 2017 Join the always lovely Miss Fancy Dismount tonight as she hosts the Miss Northeast Comedy Queen 2017 for a Sunday Funday evening full of padded side splitting laughs as she honors current titleholder and the always fucking hilarious, Bev, welcomes Miss National Comedy Queen Anita Waistline and celebrates the 5 year anniversary of Ms. Felicia O’Toole Buffington. It’s going to be quite a busy night, but that’s not even the thick weave of it as you’ll also get to witness a “blood bath” as some of the funniest queens in the northeast and beyond compete for their ticket to nationals at the world-famous Parliment House Resort and Taco Stand as well as the coveted title of Miss Northeast Comedy Queen 2017!

Summer Club Spring Fling If there’s a better way to start your week all sorts of off in the most delightfully entertainingly way possible, it’s going to be a tough find as critically acclaimed musician Jeff Coon, along with a stunning 17 piece big bang orchestra, is about to take all of us back with a night of pure classic music truth. And we’re not talking about last week back, he’s going to take us all the way back to a much simpler time when the Rat Pack ruled our lives and crooners like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin made it all worth while. And do you know what else will be worth while? Getting those tickets for an explosive night of live entertainment that you simply will not be able to witness and revel in anywhere else but right here, kids. 8 pm, Venice Island Performing Arts, 7 Lock St, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 19127
