Chicago's legendary Improv Comedy troupe returns to Santa Fe with their ode to Valentine's Day: "Hooking Up with The Second City." The Second City knows a few things about love—we’ve been looking at and laughing about relationships for over 55 years. "Hooking Up With The Second City" makes mirth out of missed connections, girls' night out adventures and all the crazy things we do for love. This gaspingly funny revue is a modern mix of romance, rancor and everything in between.
The Second City opened its doors on a snowy Chicago night in December of 1959. No one could have guessed that this small cabaret theatre would become the most influential and prolific comedy theatre in the world. With its roots in the improvisational games of Viola Spolin, The Second City developed an entirely unique way of creating and performing comedy. Founded by Spolin's son, Paul Sills, along with Howard Alk and Bernie Sahlins, The Second City was experimental and unconventional in its approach to both theatre and comedy.
At a time when mother-in-law jokes were more the fashion, The Second City railed against the conformist culture with scenes that spoke to a younger generation. Past Second City Comedians include Alan Alda, Dan Aykroyd, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Tina Fey, and Amy Poehler—to name a few.
