Five Dollar Comedy Week returns with 30 new shows

Written by , Posted in Arts & Entertainment, Nightlife

The week of affordable Philly comedy returns with Five Dollar Comedy Week, running from now through March 29 at its new home, the Plays & Players Theatre. This year, 30 new original comedy shows and workshops will premiere, including Hillary Rea’s “Rashomon,” where four storytellers will recount the same story from differing points of view, and Aaron Nevins’ “Donut Tasting” workshop, where attendees will get to learn “the only way to truly enjoy a donut,” with pastries provided by Dottie’s Donuts.

Tickets to shows are $5, or a $25 wristband can be purchased that gives access to every show for the week.
