Tom McCarthy

The Philly Fan is a one man tour-de-force: Two-time Barrymore Award winner Tom McCarthy takes audiences on a hilarious journey through the last fifty years of Philadelphia’s sports history, embracing the triumphs and frustrations of being a Philly fan.  Hailed by The Philadelphia Inquirer as “a theatrical love letter to the knowledgeable, unapologetic, demanding but ultimately forgiving [Philly] fans.”  This production is an in-your-face, tell-it-like-it-is romp through the eyes of a hard core sports fanatic, well-practiced in seeing sure-thing victories turn into “oh-my-God-they-blew-it” defeats.


Comedy at its finest, offering a heartwarming moral along with its incisive laughs.

THE PHILLY FAN should turn the most reluctant sports-loving grump into a theatergoer.
