The Best of The Second City
The Second City is the stuff of comedy legend. It’s a badge of honor to be among its alumni, a rite of passage for the biggest comedians in the business, and the name itself carries a pedigree that guarantees top-shelf laughter. Its training center has fostered the talent of too many stars to name. But why not name a few anyway: Chris Farley, Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Harold Ramis, Stephen Colbert, and Gilda Radner all number among its students.
In celebration of its storied history, a troupe from its touring company will unearth a cache of celebrated sketches, incorporate some of the soon-to-be greatest hits from the resident shows in Toronto and Chicago, and unveil new short-form improv. With Second City’s signature social satire and quick wit, the cast incorporates audience suggestions, fills the aisles with guffaws, and prevents the theater’s owners from having to release laughing gas from the air vents.
Tao: Seventeen Samurai
- What it is: a traditional Japanese drumming performance with pops of 21st Century flair
- The sights: elaborate costumes, precisely choreographed dances, and muscles—so many muscles
- The sounds: thunderous taiko drums and passionate, near-militaristic chanting
- How it all started: In 2004, Tao appeared at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe—arguably the world’s largest arts festival—and stole the show, leading to a world tour and appearance at the Vancouver Olympics in 2010.
- By the numbers: The show has travelled to more than 22 countries and 400 cities, it has dazzled nearly 7 million spectators, and it has probably inspired at least one person to incorporate drumming into their workout routine.
