Laugh at Old Man Winter by coming to see “Hooking Up with The Second City” at the Dorothy Menker Theatre at Moraine Valley Community College, January 30, and stay at the nearby and affordable Best Western Inn Suites Midway Hotel!
“Hooking Up with The Second City” is filled with guffaws, bad jokes, potty humor and pratfalls on the subject of “hooking up,” a millennial term for men and women looking for love, mostly in all the wrong places. You will laugh (or cringe) as you watch a disastrous girl’s night out, the horrors (or pleasures) of online dating and all the attendant rancor and romance.
Chicago’s The Second City is a world treasure, having spawned SCTV (John Candy, Katherine O’Hara, Mike Meyers) and Saturday Night Live (Gilda Radner, Bill Murray, Louis C.K, John Belushi, Fred Armison) as well as putting on fifty-five year’s worth of timely revues taking on all subjects, and skewering sacredness with aplomb, in Chicago’s Old Town. The Second City is THE training ground for young actors studying Chicago’s contribution to comedy, improvisational acting
