Doogie Horner wins Helium's Philly's Phunniest title

Fishtown’s Doogie Horner took the $1,000 prize and the title of Philly’s Phunniest Tuesday night at Helium Comedy Club (2031 Sansom). Horner, who made it pretty far on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” has been doing stand-up four years. He’s a writer and designer for Old City’s Quirk Books. Horner, 30, told us it was hard coming up with only 90 seconds of material for “America’s Got Talent,” but it was a great experience overall. Horner’s cheering section at Helium Tuesday included his wife Jen Thwing who he incorporates into his act but not too badly. “I’m smart enough not to make too much fun of my wife,” Horner said after his victory. Luke Cunningham took second place and Aaron Hertzog came in third at the contest which was hosted by the very funny Steve Gerben.
