The pope visit is nigh. Are you ready? Our favorite South Philly Catholic, Patsy of Shunk Street, has tips and advice for Philadelphians with concerns both spritual and parking.
Patsy is a creation of Jennifer Childs, founder of 1812 Productions, Philadelphia’s only all-comedy theater company.
Some of Patsy’s tchotchkes were made by local artists: the found-object retablos are by Ellen Benson, the relaxed pope poster by Todd Kimmel of The Grand Review.
Watch a video from 1812 Productions, released on Monday, spoofing the Mary Tyler Moore show opening credits called “Pope About Town.”
