Manatawny Still Works is Cracking Up

Craft Distillery Showcases Big Name Comic and Big Time Spirits


Pottstown, PA — A comedian walks into a bar… well, not a bar, a distillery and just three days before April Fool’s Day.

Characters, impressions and mother issues permeate the stand up comedy of Hersh Rephun, the nationally touring funny man who is making a very special appearance in Pottstown, Pennsylvania next month.

Manatawny Still WorksManatawny Still Works, the region’s popular new craft distillery, will host Rephun and his raucous brand of humor at the spirit maker’s first ever comedy night.

“We’ve been packing the place with our live music events,” says Randy McKinley, sales and marketing director for Manatawny Still Works. “We wanted to try something completely different, attract a different group of people and show everyone a great time.”

McKinley is a personal friend of Hersh who lives in Los Angeles, California, but is constantly on the road with his act.

Well known for amusing audiences with impressive impressions and accents, Hersh Rephun has appeared and headlined across the country in legendary venues such as The Comedy Store, StandUp NY, Comic Strip, Flappers, Caroline’s and The Ice House’s Stage 2.

He is the creator and star of “Smithereens,” a very strange and entertaining show that plays regularly at The Pig ‘N Whistle in Hollywood. In addition to work in film & television, Hersh has given voice to numerous characters and brands, and written several cult films featuring space ships and bikinis.

On the evening of Saturday, March 28 Hersh’s show at the Manatawny Still Works, dubbed 3 Bitches Ain’t Enough, will feature hilarious topical observations in the comedian’s brash style.

"The name for the show was inspired by Three Bitches Vodka, obviously. But it's a perfect fit, since I do a bunch of different characters,” muses Hersh, “ so I guess in a way, I'm the "three bitches" too... Wait, I'm the three bitches? WTF!"

Although Manatawny Still Works has fast become famous for their acclaimed hand-crafted spirits, including vodka, whiskey, rum, and gin, the tasting room’s special events are buzz-worthy affairs that have helped to spread the word about the liquor.

"When you play the clubs in LA and New York, they give you a drink ticket, maybe two. Which is cute. But I made a New Year's resolution,” laughs Hersh, “to do a show where the sponsor would actually benefit from giving me free drinks all night.”

3 Bitches Ain’t Enough will be a unique show in that Hersh will be performing two sets with a break in between.

“I may not drink before the first set, but you know I'm drinking between sets so it'll be an interesting experiment to compare the two. If everyone at the show keeps up with me, I'm confident we'll all be convinced the second set was better."

Manatawny Still Works is a new distillery bottling the highest quality handcrafted spirits in small batches. The distillery is located in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania on the banks of Manatawny Creek - whose Lenape name literally means, "the place we meet to drink."
