Video: The Drunk, Fat, Utterly Idiotic People of Wing Bowl 2014

Comedian N.A. Poe asks them, “Do you think the troops should come home from Iran?”


There are two types of Philadelphians: those who think that Wing Bowl is the most awesome thing ever and those who think that Wing Bowl is the most idiotic human endeavor possible. Those of you who fall into this latter category will enjoy a Wing Bowl 2014 video released by The Panic Hour, a comedy-activism collective based in Philadelphia.

Comedian (and noted marijuana enthusiast) N.A. Poe and female cohort “Da Kitty” decided to head to the Wells Fargo Center with a camera and interview the “spray-tanned strippers and drunk assholes” (as Poe puts it) who make Wing Bowl what it is.

Watch what happens when Poe asks Wing Bowl attendees questions like, “Do you think that President Obama should pull our troops out of Iran?” and “Bigger Hero: Peyton Manning or Bradley Manning?”

Our only regret is that Da Kitty, who was about to be groped as she noted the “room full of patriarchy and white males,” did not slug someone at 4:50.

    Events like this make Philadelphia look like its populated by disgusting people. Oh wait…. They certainly aren’t an example of our finest citizens.

    I’m not seeing a difference of intelligence levels between the hosts and the fans. At least the fans are just intoxicated. The hosts are boring and uninformed at best. Most people are there to see an eater win up to $50,000 in prizes. It’s no different than Nathan’s in Coney Island or Mardi Gras on Bourbon Street. I find it to be more entertaining than these hosts pretending to be a hipster version of Jay Leno’s street team.

    So two douchy hipsters go to Wingbowl expecting new revelations in quantum physics.
    What they were really there for is to confirm their own smugness.

    They aren’t wrong, but they also aren’t funny, and I thought that was kind of the point.
