CHICAGO’S FAMED SECOND CITY COMES TO VITERBO FINE ARTS CENTER

LA CROSSE, Wis.—Hilarious, intelligent, irreverent, and thought provoking are just a few ways to describe the Second City National Touring Company which will perform at the Viterbo University Fine Arts Center Main Theatre on Tuesday, Sept. 26, at 7:30 p.m. as the first show of the NexStar season.

Not only will an evening with Second City provide audiences with the chance to see comedy stars in the making, but they’ll also have the opportunity to see absolutely hilarious satire and cutting-edge improvisation.

The evening features a six-member ensemble performing some of the best sketches, songs, and improvisations from Second City’s more than 40-year history.

Founded in Chicago in 1959, Second City is known for nurturing the talent of some of the best comics and comic acts in circulation. Its alumni list reads like a who’s who of American comedy. It includes: Mike Nichols, Alan Arkin, Joan Rivers, Peter Boyle, Harold Ramis, John Belushi, Dan Akroyd, Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, George Wendt, Martin Short, John Candy, Shelley Long, Chris Farley, Mike Myers, and countless others.

This production is sponsored by the Courtyard Marriott and is supported, in part, by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin.

Tickets for Second City are $21 and $15. To order tickets, please contact the Viterbo Fine Arts Center Box Office at 608-796-3100.
