Ripped from today's headlines...it's The Second City!
Chicago's legendary comedy group The Second City returns to Green Lake's historic Thrasher Opera House on Saturday, July 18th at 7:30 p.m. The hilarious performance will feature some of the troupe's best sketches, songs, and improvisation from The Second City's 50-plus-year history.
Hilarious, spontaneous, topical, and insightful – The Second City is the biggest name in live comedy. Performing a blend of classic scenes from their archives, material torn straight from today's headlines, and their trademark brand of improv, a night with The Second City is a guaranteed-to-please, once-in-a-lifetime event. For the members of The Second City, no topic is off limits. If your parents asked you not to speak about it at the dinner tables, chances are it's fodder for The Second City crew.
The Second City first opened their doors in 1959 Chicago and soon the theatre group made a name for themselves with their innovative and unconventional approach to comedy. In a time where mother-in-law jokes were the norm, The Second City was creating comedy that spoke to a younger generation. Today, The Second City continues to thrive as the premiere site for training comedy's best and brightest. From Mike Meyers to Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert to Tina Fey – The Second City's imprint is felt across every entertainment media. While The Second City still thrives on their Chicago and Toronto stages, they also continue to create unique media in television, film, and the digital realm.
Funny and fast-paced, The Second City is an ideal way to spend an evening – always topical, highly interactive, and sure to have audiences rolling in the aisles.
