About this show

Bleacher Bums is the classic nine-inning comedy dedicated to Chicago Cub fans and the dream that "this is the year" that Cubs will make it back to their field of dreams of a World Series. Some people say it all started in 1908...the last time the Chicago Cubs won the World Series. Others in 1945...the last time the Cubs appeared in the World Series. But the truth is it started in the heart of every Cubs fan since the beginning of time...and more accurately, in the mind of a young and promising actor (and die-hard Cubs fan) named Joseph Mantegna, a member of the Organic Theater Company, one of Chicago's most prolific acting troupes that in the late 1970's turned out hit after hit such as Sexual Perversity in Chicago by David Mamet, The Wonderful Ice Cream Suit by Ray Bradbury, Warp by Stuart Gordon and Bury St. Edmund and Bleacher Bums, the biggest hit of them all!
