The MEAT Improv Live! – Train Tour 2017
True Stories & Hilarious Improv with Josh Simpson, Jake Jabbour and
Chicago’s Finest Improvisers.
The MEAT Improv is a weekly podcast hosted by comedians Josh Simpson
and Jake Jabbour where comedians tell true, “meaty” stories and then
perform longform improv inspired by these stories. The MEAT has been
going for a little over a year and accumulated over 100,000 listens
around the world. This year Jake and Josh are taking a train from Los
Angeles to the Del Close Marathon in New York City and performing live
shows in 9 different cities along the way. Join us for a live
recording of the podcast with some of the best improvisers in Chicago!
