The fun begins at 11 a.m. when three ComedySportz players and a referee play games and compete for children's (and parents') laughter. The show, designed for ages 3 and older, lets children and attendees participate.
The show, presented by ComedySportz Philadelphia, takes place every last Sunday of the month.
Families can take deck tours and sail on the Schooner Amistad through Wednesday while learning about and commemorating the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the Atlantic slave trade. The vessel will be hosted by the Independence Seaport Museum in honor of its new exhibit "Tides of Freedom, African Presence on the Delaware River."
The deck tours and sails will educate families and raise awareness of the slave trade. Guests will hear stories about black and white abolitionists who resisted the trade of enslaved Africans. The 129-foot schooner, a Baltimore vessel made in 2000, will have deck tours starting at 5 Friday evening and two-hour sailing tours starting Saturday at 1. Deck tours and sails will be offered through Wednesday.
The Schooner Amistad has been utilized by international agencies and organizations in the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, Europe, and West Africa to recognize and commemorate the 200th anniversary of the abolition of the Atlantic slave trade in the former British Empire in 1807 and the U.S. in 1808.
Schooner Amistad docking begins at 5 p.m. Friday at Independence Seaport Museum, 211 S. Columbus Blvd. and Walnut Street.
