Stand-up comedy is always fun to experience, and most of the time, you can expect to hear adult-oriented, R-rated material from your favorite comic. So why not give that material an adult setting?
Enter "Comedy For Gentlemen" — a relatively new offering in the Philly comedy scene which will begin its monthly series on Friday, June 3 at 10 PM.
Instead of a comedy club, however, the show takes place at a far more unique location: the Republican Club, an adult entertainment establishment on Snyder Avenue in South Philly.
The creator and host of Comedy for Gentlemen, Rachel Fogletto, is no stranger to performing comedy in unusual locations. In her four years of doing stand-up comedy throughout the Philadelphia area, she's performed everywhere from barbecue restaurants to even a room above an ice cream parlor.
"The Republican is a great and popular hangout spot as it is, and the venue is very supportive," says Fogletto. "It's an intimate environment with incredibly social staff who will make you feel like you're hanging out with all your friends, and oh yeah, there's a great show happening too."
