Pappy & Friends Hit the Road

It’s not about where you’re going. It’s about how you got there. Loosely based on the Shotgun, this podcast starts in the middle of a road trip. Join The Chicago Improv Den ensemble Pappy as they take some of their favorite performers on a wild– and improvised– ride.

Catch Pappy live at the iO Theatre in Absolute Blast on Mondays at 8:30pm. Tickets available here.
