Local area comedians Eddie Finn and Max Barth have turned today's passive and shallow dating culture on its head with their unique comedy offering — "The Tinder Show." As its name suggests, the show is inspired by Tinder which, if you are unaware, is an app that allows users to connect with people in their area and decide if they are worthy of "swiping right" (I like you) or the dreaded "swiping left" (Don't speak to me). When two users have swiped right on each other, they can then … and only then … communicate with each other, getting to know one another outside of the few photos and descriptions that appear on their respective profiles.
On Friday, June 24 at 8:30 p.m., Finn and Barth will bring "The Tinder Show" to the Plays and Players Theatre in Rittenhouse Square.
"There aren't any other comedy shows in Philly specifically about online dating," Finn and Barth said. "We frame the show around the Tinder app but it ís basically a show about relationships and sex and occasionally ice cream. We don't concentrate on being single, specifically, so practically everyone can relate to it. Whether you're single or dating or anywhere in between, you'll have a good time. It is actually a fun show to bring a date to and if your date doesn't laugh, you know something is fundamentally wrong with them and can promptly end things."
