BRITISH YOUTUBE COMEDY SENSATIONS
DAN HOWELL AND PHIL LESTER STAR IN
THE AMAZING TOUR IS NOT ON FIRE
 
AT THE ACADEMY OF MUSIC

MAY 20, 2016

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Philadelphia, PA, April 27, 2016) –– The Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, in association with Briarpatch Productions, welcomes British comedy sensations Dan Howell and Phil Lester for The Amazing Tour is Not on Fire on Friday, May 20 at 8:00 p.m. The dynamic YouTube duo will climb out of their computer screens and onto the Academy of Music stage, bringing the best of their radio shows, YouTube videos, and rib-tickling book together in this theatrical stage show.

“The name says it all – this performance is amazing,” said Anne Ewers, President and CEO of the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts. “Dan and Phil have an enormous following of adoring fans, all of whom are in for a hilarious evening.”

The Amazing Tour is Not on Fire will delve into the lives of Dan and Phil, two radio presenters who turned the traditional radio show format on its head in 2012, imbuing the “Radio 1 Request Show” with visual capabilities – allowing visitors of the website to watch the program live in real-time. Following the revamping of their show, it changed names to “The Dan and Phil Show,” which was hugely successful and ultimately won the Sony Golden Headphones Award at the 2013 Sony Radio Academy Awards.
