Outrageously clever

Fact Up creatively delivers laugh after laugh leveraging the talented trio of hosts alongside an impressive all-star guest lineup. Listen for just the laughs and take the facts with a grain of salt.

exceptional improve, vast knowledge

If you love exceptional production, this podcast is for you! Great guests including Lord/Sir Lawrence Olivier, Matt Jones (from Breaking Bad and the famous live birth scene during a 1981 production of Jesus Christ Superstar), exceptional improve, vast knowledge with the use of cutting edge, voice-activated computer technology, it's all here. I can't say all my questions about theater have been answered but I can't say they haven't not been answered by this podcast.
