Chicago’s popular sketch-comedy theatre show, "The Second City: Laughing Matters" will appear at 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 6, at North Georgia College & State University in Dahlonega.
The revue features some of the top sketches, songs and improvisations from The Second City’s 52-year history.
"The Second City: Laughing Matters" examines society and brings out the humor of everyday life. Anything that graces the screen of a television, the cover of a magazine or the speakers of a radio is fair game to the cast members.
Founded by Paul Sills, Howard Alk and Bernie Sahlins, The Second City opened in Chicago in December 1959. Well known for its cutting-edge satire, The Second City has also been the starting ground for many up-and-coming comedians, including Joan Rivers, Dan Aykroyd, Mike Myers, Martin Short, John Candy and Bill Murray. It maintains resident stages in Chicago and Toronto, and touring ensembles entertain more than 1 million guests each year.
The show will be held in the Shott Auditorium. Tickets are $20 ($10 with valid North Georgia ID) and can be purchased at NgcsuPerformingArts.org or 706-864-1423.
