Helium Presents: Weeding Out The Stoned

Weeding Out The Stoned is The Game Show of Sobriety Tests. A pack of players enter the game. All of them are stoned but one. It's up to all of us to find the sober individual so the audience can win dope prizes! Alex Grubard leads the investigation by seeking audience testimony, playing mind games and administering sobriety tests of the Philly's premier comedians, influencers and potheads. Past players include Todd Glass, Danny Tamberelli, Joel Kim Booster, Chanel Ali, Shane Gillis, Chris Thayer, Maddy Smith, Mekki Leeper, Rob Cantrell, Myq Kaplan, Kenice Mobley, Mike Drucker, Steven Rogers and over 500 more!

Weeding Out The Stoned began in Philadelphia for Five Dollar Comedy Week in 2015. Since then Weeding Out The Stoned has been selected to be in the New York Comedy Festival, The Highlarious Comedy Festival and WOOtenany. Through multiple tours, Weeding Out The Stoned has sold out shows in a dozen states at venues including Helium Comedy Club, Elysian Theater and Asylum NYC. The Game Show of Sobriety Tests has been featured in BrooklynVegan, NJ.com, Time Out New York, Phindie, Philadelphia Inquirer, Denver Westword, Portland Mercury, Philly Metro, Worcester Telegram, Emerald Magazine, CelebStoner and was a front page story in the Delaware News Journal.
