Jake Arrieta Does Improv

During the Fall *Jake Arrieta, Cubs World Series Champion, took an Improv workshop at Under The Gun Theater. "I just really love Improv.

"I am super pumped to be performing and hosting my first Improv show," Arrieta continued.

"Strike Out with Jake Arrieta" at its heart is a show about love...hosted by *Jake Arrieta. Jake will interview audience members about bad dates they have gone on and then Jake and the Under The Gun Ensemble will perform Improv based on the stories.
