Who is Second City?
The Second City opened its doors on a snowy Chicago night in December of 1959, and has since grown to become the world’s premier comedy club, theatre and school of improvisation—with live shows every night in Chicago, Toronto and Hollywood. Bernard Sahlins, Howard Alk and Paul Sills, son of teacher Viola Spolin, founded the theater as a place where scenes and story were created improvisationally, using techniques that grew out of the innovative techniques Spolin developed and taught. The Second City chose its self-mocking name from the title of an article about Chicago by A. J. Liebling that appeared in The New Yorker in 1952.  Famous alumni include Dan Aykroyd, James Belushi, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey, Gilda Radner, among many others.

What to expect from the Second City’s Game Night performance? 
What happens when Chicago’s best improvisers are tossed head first into a medley of classic game shows? Come laugh your way through Second City’s Game Night and find out! From celebrity-guessing to fill-in-the-blankety-blanks, charades to feuding families to improvised commercial breaks, the laughs come rapid-fire as host, Joey Bland, segues seamlessly from one game to the next. Have a special talent? Think your linguistic skills are better than most? Have something bizarre in your purse? Get on stage and change the game! Audiences participate at every turn, taking the show a different direction each night as the whip-smart cast toes the line between absurdity and genius in a way that only game shows and improv can achieve.  Please note that the show contains adult language.

Who/Where do proceeds benefit?
Proceeds from this event will benefit the UConn Health revitalization projects through Bioscience Connecticut, including the construction and renovation of facilities and the enhancement of research, education and patient programs, unless otherwise noted in the descriptions.
