The only thing Philadelphians like more than turning words that start with “F” into words that start with “Ph” is talking sh*t about Philadelphia. And few people talk sh*t about Philly more lovingly than John McKeever, Tommy Pope and Tim Butterly, so it only makes sense that Comedy Central has tapped them for a new web series set in the city where they play three blue-collar best friends from the area who are trying to make it through each day.
Delco Proper premieres on ComedyCentral.com today, here’s a lengthy look at the first episode.

No one loves Hall & Oates the way Philadelphians love Hall & Oates (except for maybe that one hair dresser at your local Hair Cuttery who still wears the same hoop earrings she wore to prom in 1984). Here, Pope and fellow Philadelphia comedian Chip Chantry put a little holiday flare into the duo’s classic pop hits.
In case you weren’t aware, Jesus was, like, a HUGE Notre Dame fan. Now you know.
“The Real Househusbands of Philadelphia”
“If you bought a slightly-irregular coat in the last 20 years, you helped pay for my Shore house.” Yup, McKeever and the rest of the gang are just as mildly uppity and accidentally racist as they should be here.
