Second City comedy group returns

Plays June 7 in Roswell

Posted:

ROSWELL, Ga. – Chicago’s legendary comedy theater company, The Second City, presents “Happily Ever Laughter,” a hilarious revue featuring some of the best sketches, songs and improvisation from Second City’s 53-year history on June 7 at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center. Because of their sold-out show last year, RCAC has added two shows this year: 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.

Drawing on classic material from Second City archives as well as scenes ripped from the morning headlines, “Happily Ever Laughter” is a chance to see comedy stars in the making during an evening of smart, cutting-edge comedy.

The Second City continues to deliver the leading voices in comedy while touring the globe. With scripted and improvisational elements, audiences always enjoy being part of the show and playing along with the next generation of comic legends. Many of comedy’s brightest stars have hit the road with the Second City Touring Company, including Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Amy Poehler, Steve Carell, Bill Murray, Keegan Michael Key and most recently, Saturday Night Live stars Cecily Strong, Tim Robinson and Jason Sudeikis.

“We are so excited about Second City coming. I just love Tina Fey, so personally I’m about to jump out of my skin to be able to watch these performers. Plus, there is a young woman in the cast from Atlanta,” says Sarah Chandler, Roswell Cultural Arts Center coordinator. “And we will be announcing next season’s LIVE! in Roswell shows at this event, so it is truly thrilling for me.”

Limited tickets are currently available for both shows (7 p.m. and 10 p.m.) at $35. All seating is general admission. Plus, there’s a cash bar in the lobby and a free photo booth with all kinds of crazy props. For further information or tickets, visit www.roswellcac.com or call 770-594-6232.

The Roswell Cultural Arts Center is located at 950 Forrest St. in Roswell.

Because of the strong language usage, this show is for mature audiences only.

The Doubletree by Hilton Atlanta-Roswell LIVE! in Roswell series is made possible by contributions from sponsors, including Doubletree by Hilton Atlanta-Roswell, the Mimms Company, The Current, Tribridge Residential, New Kent Capital, Rubicon Studios, Roswell Ghost Tours and Hugo’s Oyster Bar.
