Sex and The Second City

Sex and The Second City

November 11 to December 18, 2011 | On the Hertz Stage
Part of the Hertz Series

The Second City. One of the greatest sources of comedy in the history of the universe.

Relationships. The internet. Two of the funniest subjects in the history of the universe.

See where we're going here? Yes, The Second City (they're responsible for John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Chris Farley and more) is taking on love with a digital twist from another Second City alum, Fred Willard ("live" via FaceTime-SkypeTube-gChat uplink). 

Sex and The Second City  combines brilliant sketches from the minds of The Second City with unpredictable and hilarious audience-fueled improv scenes (you know, like a blind date). It's way funnier than anything you'll find on TV, but if you miss this, you won't find it on Hulu later. 

Audience Feedback


To mark the end of the Alliance Stage as we know it, and to welcome the new era with the start of the big renovation, Pearl Cleage, our Mellon Playwright in Residence, wrote a piece to commemorate this special occasion.

As a spunky gal in touch with nature in the kingdom of Kashoogie, India S. Tyree portrays a unique Cinderella in the world-premiere production of Cinderella and Fella. In between performances, India took a few minutes to give us the inside scoop on her role in the musical.

A quick glance at Magic Negro director Anthony LeBlanc's resume reveals a robust string of achievements likely to be the envy of any comedian in the business. One particular credit to his name may cause others to take pause: a Computer Science and Physics B.S. degree.
