Comic Todd Glass in stand-up doc playing Sat.

Comic Todd Glass in stand-up doc playing Sat.


Paoli-raised comedian Todd Glass can be seen in the new stand-up comedy documentary "I Am Comic," which premieres Saturday during the Philadelphia Film and Music Festival. Glass, a Conestoga High grad, is about to begin a tour opening for Louis C.K. but will not perform with the star of FX's "Louie" on Nov. 5, when he headlines the Academy of Music. Glass, who started in stand-up at 15 at the Comedy Works, 2nd and Chestnut, has an engagement that night in Washington. He just taped a pilot for a show called "Dinner at Todd's House," which featured Sarah Silverman and other friends who came to his house for dinner and conversation only, with a surprise twist such as "a 10-piece mariachi band showing up."

"I am Comic" plays at 11:30 Saturday night at Yards Brewery (901 N. Delaware). You can go here to learn more about the film and here to see more about the Philadelphia Film and Music Festival.
