Second City has created a show featuring content for and about Berkeley and the Bay Area. From cryptocurrency to geriatric Millennials, holier-than-thou 'tudes to start-up bros, no safe space will be left unscathed in this fast-paced delivery of new and classic sketch comedy, original songs and improvisation.
The longtime first name in improv and sketch comedy, Second City—established in Chicago in 1959 by famed improv king Paul Sills and others, and now also based in Hollywood and Toronto—arrives at Berkeley Rep with a satire about those of us living complacently in the liberal bubble. (Belushi, Ayckroyd, Radner—they were all members back in the day.) Six players form this show’s multicultural cast; original songs are included.
