If outdoor activities are a little too muggy for your tastes, sit in an air-conditioned theater tonight when Saturday Night Live writer and cast member Leslie Jones (who was also beyond hilarious in the Ghostbusters reboot) comes to Philly on her standup tour. Look out for her dynamic delivery and gregarious energy.
