BOB PANTALONE is thrilled to rejoin the talented Mechanics for his second EL Stories ride after performing in the Transit Race edition last summer. Bob is a Michigan native and graduated with a B.A in acting from Central Michigan University. Since then, Bob has performed in a number of stellar productions at ComedySportz Chicago. Other local credits include Fairlane Theatre's Sexual Perversity in Chicago (Bernie), Lasso'd Moon's Almost Maine, and Red Star's YO JOE! (Python Commander). Bob can also be found performing improv comedy all over this city. As always he would like to thank his circle of friends, his family, and his cat Jackson for the love and support!
