Eugene Pack’s live comedy series The Pack had been performed in theaters in Los Angeles as a popular monthly event with sold out audiences and is now available worldwide in the form of audio comedies. For The Pack Podcast, the actors interact from their homes in cities like LA, NYC, Austin, Toronto, London, Copenhagen and episodes are heard in 95 countries. The podcast has also given the opportunity to pair performers who have always wanted to act together, for example: Oscar-winner Marisa Tomei and Oscar-winner Eva Marie Saint; Cecily Strong & Andrea Martin who did an episode with original SNL cast member Laraine Newman; plus reuniting stars like James Caan & Marsha Mason (who starred together in the film Chapter Two). Listeners can experience Pack’s unique stories that are both funny and poignant in a highly imaginative way.
The Pack Podcast is produced by EP Productions, Dayle Reyfel, and Jen Hegarty.
