The Second City: Look Both Ways Before Talking

Let someone else face your small talk fears head-on! Instead of avoiding Grandpa and de-friending your old high school pals, see The Second City’s brand new sketch comedy and improv revue, LOOK BOTH WAYS BEFORE TALKING. We’re diving right into every touchy subject you’re thinking about, but are afraid to say out loud…or online.

Edgy, thought-provoking and always spectacularly funny​,​ The Second City is celebrating nearly six decades of producing cutting-edge satirical revues and launching the careers of generation after generation of comedy’s best and brightest.

If the event is not sold out, tickets will also be available at Cox Auditorium starting at 6:30PM on the night of the show.
