Town/City Information
Country: USA
State/Province: Illinois
First mentioned: "Much Apu About Nothing"

Peoria is a city in Illinois. The rhetorical phrase, "Will it play in Peoria?" metaphorically asks if something has mainstream appeal.


While trying to teach Apu about American history for Apu's citizenship test, Homer shows him a map of the US, on which various cities are seen.[1]
