'Improv Nerd with Jimmy Carrane,' right, begins its run at the Skybox Theater at Second City in Chicago on Saturday.

Longtime listeners likely remembered the comedic style of Jimmy Carrane. Carrane hosted the comical, partly improvised, show-within-a-show
Studio 312, which aired on Eight Forty-Eight. He now has a new show, Improv Nerd with Jimmy Carrane. The live interview format heads into what could be considered its second season this Saturday at the Skybox Theater at Second City in Chicago. The show starts at 9:00 p.m., and Carrane will talk with Mick Napier founder and artistic director of Chicago’s Annoyance Theatre. Eight Forty-Eight talked with Carrane earlier this fall.
