LAFF RIOTERS: Second City at work skewering everything in sight

Second City

By Michael S. Gant


HOT ON THE HEELS of Forbidden Broadway, San Jose Rep brings the famed Second City comedy troupe to town for a whirlwind run (July 14–19). Long before SNL, Second City, formed in 1959, pioneered the art of sketch comedy, sidesplitting satire and group improv. To name but of few of its illustrious alums: Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, George Wendt, Tina Fey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Stephen Colbert.


SECOND CITY performs Tuesday, July 14, at 7:30pm, Wednesday–Friday at 8pm, Saturday at 3 and 8pm and Sunday at 2pm at San Jose Rep, 101 Paseo de San Antonio, San Jose. Tickets are $17.50–$60. (408.367.7255)
