Pack created the international hit Celebrity Autobiography, presented on Broadway last year. His original live comedy play series The Pack has been performing live in theaters in Los Angeles as a monthly event with sold out audiences and is now available to all in the form of spoken word radio plays while benefitting two important organizations — The Actors Fund and Feeding America. For The Pack Podcast, the actors will be recording and interacting from their homes worldwide from LA, NYC, Austin, Toronto, London and Copenhagen! Though the mystery of radio podcasts, listeners can experience these stories & voices in a unique and highly imaginative way. The Pack Podcast is produced by Jen Hegarty, EP Productions and Dayle Reyfel.
