This past Sunday Helium Comedy Club held another round of Philly’s Phunniest. Besides the guy with the Jesus bit and a few average interruptions, the night was par for the course. That is, until one comic took the stage. That comic, Oakland Seligson, proceeded to do six minutes of the most brain baffling and unexplainable comedy I have ever witnessed.
While the actual jokes were far from earth shattering, the comic’s delivery and affect had a few pockets of the audience (my group included) in pure hysterics. Luckily, someone uploaded the footage to Youtube so you can decide for yourself if Oakland is the next Andy Kaufman or just happy coincidence. Oakland, if you’re out there, please get in touch- we have a few questions for you.
