Chicago’s legendary comedy theatre company, The Second City, will come to Roswell in June.
The theatre company will present Happily Ever Laughter, a hilarious revue featuring some of the best sketches, songs and improvisation from The Second City’s 53-year history.
The company will perform on June 7 at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center. The cultural arts center added two shows this year as the show last year was sold out.
Drawing on classic material from The Second City archives, as well as scenes ripped from the morning headlines, The Second City’s Happily Ever Laughter is "your chance to see comedy stars in the making during an evening of smart, cutting-edge comedy," the center said in a news release.
The Second City continues to deliver the leading voices in comedy while touring the globe.
With scripted and improvisational elements, audiences always enjoy being part of the show and playing along with the next generation of comic legends. Many of comedy’s brightest stars have hit the road with The Second City Touring Company, including Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Amy Poehler, Steve Carell, Bill Murray, Keegan Michael Key and most recently, Saturday Night Live stars Cecily Strong, Tim Robinson and Jason Sudeikis.
“We are so excited about Second City coming," said Sarah Chandler, Roswell Cultural Arts Center coordinator. "I just love Tina Fey, so personally I’m about to jump out of my skin to be able to watch these performers. Plus, there is a young woman in the cast from Atlanta. And we will be announcing next season’s LIVE! in Roswell shows at this event, so it is truly thrilling for me!”
Limited tickets are currently available for both shows (7 p.m. & 10 p.m.) at $35. All seating is general admission. Plus, there’s a cash bar in the lobby and a free photo booth with all kinds of crazy props.
