WCVB’s Heather Unruh got papal during a skit at Banned in Boston, the annual fund-raiser for Urban Improv, a program that uses improvisational theater to help local kids learn to handle problems such as racism, bullying, and drugs. Other participants in the benefit, which was held at the House of Blues on Friday, included Aerosmith’s Tom Hamilton, NECN’s Jenny Johnson, WGBH’s Emily Rooney, and Boys and Girls Clubs of Boston President Josh Kraft.
