On Saturday, March 31, 2018, Chicago’s legendary sketch and improv comedy touring company, The Second City, will return to The Village Theater at Cherry Hill in Canton, MI to perform “Look Both Ways Before Talking.”
This world-famous comedy troupe will be diving right into every touchy subject you're thinking about, but are afraid to say out loud...or online. Let someone else face your small talk fears head-on! Instead of avoiding Grandpa and de-friending your old high school pals, see The Second City's brand new sketch comedy and improv revue when the curtain goes up on March 31 at 7:30 p.m. at The Village Theater at Cherry Hill.
Edgy, thought-provoking and always spectacularly funny, The Second City is celebrating nearly six decades of producing cutting-edge satirical revues and launching the careers of generation after generation of comedy’s best and brightest including Stephen Colbert (Colbert Report, The Late Show) , Steve Carrell (The Office, Battle of the Sexes), Tim Meadows (Mean Girls, The Goldbergs) and countless other comedy legends.
The Second City based out of Chicago, Illinois and is a training center that specializes in improvisational comedy. Improvisational theatre, often called improv or impro, is the form of theatre, often comedy, in which most or all of what is performed is unplanned or unscripted: created spontaneously by the performers. In its purest form, the dialogue, action, story, and characters are created collaboratively by the players as the improvisation unfolds in present time, without the use of an already prepared, written script.
“Look Both Ways Before Talking” is an improvised revue show, which is a mix of semi-improvised and scripted scenes with new material developed during unscripted improv sessions after the second act, where scenes are created based on audience suggestions.
“The Second City has been enormously successful in the genre of comedy because of improv’s ability to immediately bring relevant topics of the everyday person directly to the audience,” said Canton Performing Arts Coordinator Joe Kvoriak. “Improv is always fresh, funny and timely. The best part is you never know what to expect so creates a high-level of engagement from the audience that keeps everyone, actors, and audience, on their toes.”
