Black History Monthly is a variety show featuring a diverse line-up of stand-up, improv, sketch, poetry, and musical comedy. Hosts Brandon Mitchell, Keane Cobb and Ronald Metellus were tired of being the only person-of-color on comedy shows and resolved to make a show where performers felt as comfortable in the green room as they did on stage. It's an idea that's taken the trio to New Orleans to perform at Hell Yes Fest, lead to a run of well-attended shows back in Philadelphia and was the subject of a lengthy profile in Philly.com. Their first show at Helium, promises to be their strongest yet -- bringing together the best acts from previous shows alongside some Helium-tested newcomers!
