Oh our fucking goodness. One of the greats, the incomparable Chris Gethard, is returning to Good Good for THREE live taping show which will be part of his next comedy special! You of course know Chris Gethard from TruTV’s The Chris Gethard Show, his popular podcast Beautiful/Anonymous on Earwolf and his new show Chris Gethard Presents, where he showcases the funniest, most innovative comedians in NYC. You also probably know his roles on Broad City, The Office, Parks and Recreation and his own 90-minute HBO special Career Suicide.


Two special shows with our good friend Mitra Jouhari, WGA Award-nominated writer, comedian, actress and faith healer. Mitra is a co-creator and co-star of the upcoming Amy Poehler-produced Adult Swim series Three Busy Debras, and currently writes for Netflix’s Big Mouth. Her previous writing credits include Broad City, High Maintenance, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee and so much more. She’ll be performing her new show Dumb Bitch with Terrible Taste with special guest opener Whitmer Thomas (GLOW, Tuca & Bertie).


Samantha Ruddy, longtime Good Good favorite and wildly talented stand-up comedian, is recording her damn DEBUT ALBUM right here at Good Good! Sam has appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Comedy Central, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee and more. These two back-to-back album recording shows will also feature special guests Kate Willett (Netflix) and Chanel Ali (MTV).


Holy hell! The glamorous Catherine Cohen is performing two back-to-back shows! Catherine’s been on Broad City, High Maintenance, Search Party, Difficult People and co-hosts the popular podcast Seek Treatment (her co-host Pat Regan will be opening these shows!). Additionally she was just named one of GQ’s 7 Funny People Reshaping Comedy Right Now, one of Vulture’s Comedians You Should and Will Know, and one of Time Out New York’s Comedians To Watch.

 


We’ve also got Comedy Central Comic to Watch Daniel Van Kirk, co-host of the popular podcasts Dumb People Town alongside The Sklar Brothers and Pen Pals alongside Rory Scovel. You probably also know him from Bob’s Burgers and/or from his uncanny Mark Wahlberg impression on Doug Benson’s Doug Loves Movies. Now he’s coming to Philly for one night only!


Get enlightened with the The Scientists, which we’re bringing to Philly from NYC! Comedians and “scientists” Blythe Roberson (author, How To Date Men When You Hate Men) and Madelyn Freed investigate anything from A.I. to romantic attraction to body decomposition. This time, they’ll have help from NYC comedians Halcyon Person (Full Frontal with Samantha Bee), Harris Mayersohn (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert) and more.


The extraordinarily funny and versatile Alyssa Limperis is best known for her super popular “mom videos,” boasting millions of views across Twitter and YouTube. She’s also appeared on Conan, Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and Comedy Bang! Bang!


Oh, and guess the fuck what? Good Good is three years old and we’re throwing an absolutely insane, comedy carnival to celebrate. We’re showcasing bite-sized versions of all our regular shows and a few new ones too and invited our good friends Marisa Dabice from Mannequin Pussy and Sadie Dupuis from Speedy Ortiz to provide some musical accompaniment. Hope to see you there!


There’s a good chance you’ve witnessed the magnetic charm of Michelle Buteau on Key & Peele, Broad City, 2 Dope Queens, The Eric Andre Show, Russian Doll, High Maintenance and her own show Adulting. Now’s your chance to see her at Good Good with two back-to-back shows, one of which is already SOLD OUT! Truly a dream come true.
