“I am so thrilled to be bringing our podcast to a live audience, if only to have witnesses to the absurdities our brains cook up before the authorities lock us up in padded rooms. Though when they do, we like visitors who bring us snacks, just FYI. We're geniuses, we swear,” co-host Landree Fleming said. "Hey, if you like things like joy, laughter, surprises and silliness, we're the show for you.”
Members of the press may email You Simply Must representative Drew Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org) for two (2) complimentary tickets to the performance.
You Simply Must, a Chicago-based comedy podcast, has been releasing weekly episodes since 2016. Hosts Landree Fleming and Drew Johnson alternate episodes forcing each other to try something new. Vegetarian-hot-wing-eating, toenail-painting, reality-television-watching, sporting-event-attending, virtual reality-experiencing, architectural-tour-taking-- the intrepid You Simply Must hosts will try anything once.
Landree and Drew are now bringing their alternately loving and contentious on-air dynamic to the stage for the very first time, in celebration of their 100th episode. The live show will include many of the segments that listeners have come to love over the past two years, plus a few special surprises crafted specifically for the live audience.
