Rooted in the groundbreaking improvisational games of Viola Spolin, The Second City opened its doors on a snowy Chicago night in December of 1959, and a comedy revolution began. The small cabaret theater has grown to become the most influential and prolific comedy empire in the world, developing an entirely unique way of creating art and fostering generation after generation of superstars.
Co-founded by Spolin’s son, Paul Sills, along with Howard Alk and Bernie Sahlins, The Second City was experimental and unconventional in its approach to both theater and comedy. Almost immediately, alumni of The Second City, including Alan Arkin, Joan Rivers, Fred Willard, Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi, launched the theater into the international spotlight.
In 1976, Second City launched “SCTV,” which has been hailed as one of the greatest sketch comedy series of all time. The two-time Emmy winner featured an all-star cast made up of Martin Short, Andrea Martin, Catherine O’Hara, John Candy, Eugene Levy, Dave Thomas, Joe Flaherty, and Rick Moranis.
Today, The Second City is home to a world-class entertainment company, continuing to produce premier talent in all three of its locations--Chicago, Toronto, and Hollywood--and entertaining more than one million audience members a year. From Steve Carell to Keegan-Michael Key, Stephen Colbert to Tina Fey, Chris Farley to Mike Myers, Second City’s imprint is all over film, television, and beyond. In addition to its stages, Second City Touring Companies perform electrifying revues and original productions across North America and abroad.
Doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 8pm. We have 12 reserved seats in the B Center section ( 6 seats each in rows 9 &10). Registrations are $42 and we do not offer refunds, so do not register unless you know you'll be able to attend. You may sell your registration to another paid member if your plans change. You must be a paid member of BAS at the time of the event, so if you aren't sure if you will be a member as of the event date, please do not register for this event. BAS owns the tickets and will not be issuing them to attendees until the day before the event. You are welcome to purchase your own ticket directly from Boulder Theater if you'd prefer, but you will not be able to sit with the group.
UPDATE: We will be meeting at Rosetta Hall at 5:30pm for dinner/drinks before the show. If you don't see us on the main level, look for us up on the Mezzanine Level (one flight of stairs up) or on the rooftop (weather permitting).
