Next In Line, a comedy collective directed by Tyler Wolf and Manny Brown, has arranged the shows in response to a space in the Philadelphia scene.
“There are a lot of opportunities, and venues, and spots, and audiences in Philadelphia, but not a lot of opportunities for really amazing local shows,” Wolf said. “We just saw that gap and really wanted to fill it.”
Franky Bradley’s, located in Center City, will feature performances on the third Saturday of each month. There will also be one-off performances at venues elsewhere in the city. Tickets range from $ 10 to $ 20 and there is no minimum drink.
The first show at Franky Bradley’s will begin on Saturday, with headlining by Devon Walker. Walker is a Brooklyn -based comedian and writer for Netflix’s “Big Mouth” featured on Comedy Central.
“A lot of people don’t know who he is, and probably should,” Wolf said. “He’s going to be big.”
To get show tickets, head to Next In Line’s EventBrite page. Doors open at 7 pm and the show will begin at 7:30 pm
In the coming months, Next In Line will bring comics from Philadelphia, New York and elsewhere.
“Comedians are right on the brink of bloom,” Wolf said. “It’s affordable, but it’s going to be an amazing show.”
“These comics are people who aren’t household names yet, but they’re kind of next door,” Brown said. “So we’re giving audiences a chance now to be kind of on the line first to see these people and get them before they’re so big that you’re going to pay more.”
