Second City to Perform at Orpheum, Oct. 26

Chicago’s legendary sketch comedy theatre takes on the election in Second City for President on Friday, Oct. 26 at 7:30 p.m. in the Orpheum Theatre.

Do you have electoral fatigue? Do polling numbers and spin doctors have you reeling? Then, Second City has the perfect remedy, Second City for President: a gut-busting comedy revue that doles out laughter at the expense of both sides of the aisle as well as comedy that is decidedly unpolitical, uncensored and unabashedly hilarious.

Second City for President runs on a strictly pro-comedy platform. Second City will only be touring Second City for President for a limited run during the election season.

Second City celebrates its 50th year of cutting edge satiric revues and continues to deliver the leading voices in comedy while touring the globe.
