The Cool Dad Podcast Live!

The Cool Dad Podcast is the only podcast in which Chicago comedians are reunited with their "fathers" on-air. Hosts Dan Sheehan and Tyler Snodgrass interview a new comedian every episode about their dad and how their life was influenced by him. In every episode, as a surprise guest, the guest's father is brought into the studio for an interview and quite often they sound suspiciously similar to other Chicago comedians.

Loser. – A Live Action Shame Show

The brainchild of comedian Jeremy Essig (Brian Posehn Tour Mate, appearances on NPR) and Chris Ward (DJ on KDHX, former Twisted Toyfare Theatre writer) Loser. is a night of karaoke, bar trivia, video game competitions and sketch comedy rolled into one two-hour show.

A four-part game show, Loser., begins with music trivia and a slightly skewed version of “Don’t Forget the Lyrics.” The show then moves to its video game portion where contestants are awarded points for both their gaming skills and ability to complement those skills with pizza rolls. Shifting to contestant’s ability to draw superheroes into real-life scenarios in the show’s third round, the game ends with a local sketch group performing a dark and occasionally offensive fan-fiction version of a popular sitcom. Holding this madness together are co-hosts Essig and Ward, pop-culture aficionados whose humor provides a backbone for what would otherwise be an unwieldy plethora of cultural delights.
