Helmed by creative director and former National Comedy Theatre instructor Alan Ng, Secret City’s 15-person troupe of actors and comics transmutes audience suggestions into fits of belly laughter by imagining scenes with clean wit and hilarity. Moderated by a referee, two teams of chuckle constructors act out guffaw-inspiring skits and competitions, allowing audiences to appoint the winners and tickle the losers. The cast spins different yarns at each performance, employing only humor appropriate for ages 8 and up in a squeaky-clean comedic atmosphere calibrated for family outings.
