A.P. Bio Season 2 Charity

A.P. Bio‘s disgraced Harvard professor turned Ohio high school teacher Jack Griffin may not be particularly charitable. But that doesn’t mean the show can’t be. 

The folks behind NBC’s A.P. Bio are hosting “A Night with A.P. Bio: A Charity Comedy Show” on March 5 to raise funds for the Toledo, Ohio-based nonprofit, Partners for Education. Partners for Education is an organization dedicated to providing students, schools and partners with the best programs and services available. A.P. Bio is, of course, set in the fictional Whitlock High School in Toledo, the hometown of A.P. Bio creator Mike O’Brien (and also Tony Packo’s pickles and a neat glass museum).

A Night with A.P. Bio will feature Patton Oswalt, Paula Pell, Mary Sohn, Lyric Lewis, Jean Villepique and Mike O’Brien as guests. Max Silvestri, Brooks Wheelan, and Patton Oswalt will perform standup sets. 

The event is being held at The Virgil on 4519 Santa Monica Boulevard in Los Angeles. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. PT and the show stars at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $20.

Jack is forced to move back to Toledo following the dissolution of his career in higher education He gets a job as an A.P.

Instead they will be helping him enact petty revenge and get his old life back.

Patton Oswalt, Paula Pell, Mary Sohn, Lyric Lewis, Jean Villepique, and a whole host of talented kids who probably aren’t of age to get into The Virgil co-star.
