Second City


Second City

Chicago’s legendary sketch and improv Comedy Theater will come to Kenan Auditorium with “The Second City Hits Home,” a new show featuring hilarious sketches, songs and improvisation about Wilmington, as well as material from the famed Second City archives. This is a must-see night of comedy featuring some of Chicago’s brightest comedy stars in a special one night engagement. Doing what they do best, The Second City finds laughs in everything from Wilmington’s history, events and hot button issues to headlines from our local newspaper and mixes these with a generous portion of classic Chicago-style sketch and improv created by some of Second City’s most lauded alumni, including Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray and more. The Second City celebrates 55 years of cutting edge satirical revues and continues to deliver the leading voices in comedy while touring the globe.
