But how, exactly, is a Chicago improv group putting on a comedy show all about Philly? The two head writers spent a three-day “Immersion Weekend,” which they document on the “Nutterly Love” blog. It consisted of having beer at Fergie’s in Center City, spending a day talking to politicians in City Hall, and eating their way from the Italian Market to Reading Terminal.
It’s not a mystery that they found comedy here when you see the video of residents’ opinions of their own city. One woman describes it as insane, drug-infested and having lots of murders. Yet when asked, “But do you love it?” she answers, “Absolutely.”
