Diehard “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” fans might want to save Sept. 18 for a special “The Always Sunny Podcast” appearance at the Met, where The Gang is now set to host an in-person taping of the show.
Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton will be on hand to continue their journey through 15 seasons of the record-breaking FXX series. The podcast features episode-by-episode analysis of the sitcom, from memories of the writing process to hijinks and on-set magic.
He also has his fair share of moments that can only be described as big silly friends together.
To date, the podcast has loaded 36 episodes and garnered a cult following similar to the series itself, which is now the longest-running live-action sitcom in American television history. At one point, “The Always Sunny Podcast” edged out “The Joe Rogan Experience” as Spotify’s top podcast on the streaming platform.
“We’re so excited to take this show on the road and bring the podcast to Bourbon & Beyond in Louisville and the iconic Met Philadelphia,” said Glenn Howerton, who plays Dennis Reynolds on the show. “There’s nothing we enjoy more than being in the same room with all of Sunny’s amazing fans!
The show at the Met is the second of two scheduled for this weekend, beginning with a Saturday appearance at the Bourbon and Beyond Festival in Louisville, Ky., on Sept. 17.
Since its debut in 2005, “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” has followed The Gang through years of misanthropic adventures based on the fictional Paddy’s Pub in South Philadelphia. The show’s distinctive blend of satire and dark comedy is recast in a new light on “The Always Sunny Podcast,” giving listeners uncensored access to the stars’ upset.
It is not yet known if co-stars Kaitlin Olson and Danny DeVito could make an appearance at the Met. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 17.
