A few months ago the historic "Laff House" in Philadelphia closed its doors for the final time. The closing left a hole in the Urban Comedy scene; however a call to action was made by a collection of comedians calling for those near and dear to the comedy scene to donate with the intention of opening a new comedy home for the displaced comedians and comedy lovers.
Unfortunately, this call appears to be falling short of its ten thousand dollar goal.
Many of the patrons may have assumed one of the success stories from the Laff House would come back and save the establishment; unfortunately the Laff House has been saved in the past by comedian Kevin Hart. Kevin Hart often gave credit to the Laff House for launching his career and even mentioned the establishment in numerous videos.
If the ten thousand dollar goal was reached, the funds raised would open a new chapter in the Philadelphia comedy scene.
