Fermilab Arts and Lecture Series: The Second City comes to Fermilab Saturday

On Sept. 21, renowned Second City brings its improv to Fermilab’s Ramsey Auditorium.

Never the same, always hilarious, The Second City is the nation’s leading brand in improv-based sketch comedy.

Now “Second City: Happily Ever Laughter” comes to Fermilab on Saturday, Sept. 21, at 8 p.m. in Ramsey Auditorium.

The Second City has been called “a comedy empire” by The New York Times, and it’s no wonder. The Second City boasts theaters in Chicago and Toronto, training centers in those cites as well as in Hollywood, 11 full-time touring ensembles, thriving corporate communications and theatricals, and television and film operations.

Second City first opened its doors on a snowy night in 1959. Today, Second City continues to produce the premier comic talent in the industry: Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, Mike Myers and Amy Poehler are all Second City alumni.

Come see comedy improv at its best on Saturday. Tickets are $25, $13 for those ages 18 and under. You can purchase them online or by calling 630-840-2787. Chez Leon will also be open that evening at 6 p.m. To make dinner reservations, call 630-840-3524.
