Smith Artist Series: The Second City Hits Home!

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. Today, The Second City continues to produce the premiere comic talent in the industry. From Mike Myers to Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert to Tina Fey – The Second City imprint is felt across every entertainment medium. The touring company of The Second City returns to Davidson for the third time as a part of the Smith Artist Series. This year, Davidson gets in on the laughter as The Second City takes on all the news that’s fits to twist in town and on campus. The biggest headlines! The hot-button issues! And it’s all served up with a side of that famous Chicago-style improv. Don’t miss your chance to see the superstars of tomorrow live on stage now-- when The Second City Hits Home!
This performance is a part of the Smith Artist Series. Season tickets are available for purchase beginning on August 4 and individual performance tickets available for purchase on September 1. For more information, see season and ticketing.
