WHAT IS RIDESHARE?
“Created by real-life drivers and passengers, each episode is completely improvised by Chicago comedians. Meaningful human connection can happen in unexpected ways and in unexpected places. Especially in the digital era where it is so easy to forgo any and all direct contact with other people, our show is a reminder that when you let someone in, even for five minutes, it can change your life.

A NOTE FROM KATIE (show-runner, co-creator)
I was sitting on Jeff Irlbeck’s back porch one night when I revealed to him that I hate talking
to Uber drivers. Jeff is a real-life Uber driver, and he immediately assembled the deck chairs
into a car formation and told me to get in the “backseat”. Jeff said “I’ll get you to talk, and
you’ll like it”. I did.
A month later we convinced our improv friends to sit in a car with Jeff for 20 minutes while we filmed them. When we reviewed the footage, we discovered the stories that expanded in ways we never could have imagined. That’s how we made RideShare. Enjoy!
