The Second City returns to the McAninch Arts Center in Glen Ellyn just in time for the holidays with "It's a Wild, Wacky, Wonderful Life" at 4 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 12.

While the weather outside could be frightful, the laughter inside will be most delightful as comedy's best and brightest roast the chestnuts out of all the things we lovingly loathe about the holiday season with a delightful mix of satirical sketches and songs.

 

An improv section based on audience suggestions will add something extra fun and unexpected to this highly entertaining performance.

The cast will feature Hannah Ingle, David Iqbal, Bill Letz, Claudia Martinez and Claire McFadden.

The director is Cat McDonnell with music director Stuart Mott and stage manager Isabel Patt.

The Second City has produced some of the most unforgettable satire and influential comedians of the last 60 years.

The company continues to launch the careers of comedy superstars including Bill Murray, John and Jim Belushi, Mike Myers, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Ryan Stiles, Horatio Sanz, Tim Meadows, Joan Rivers, John Candy, Chris Farley, and many more. Its pioneering methods have inspired mindsets and behaviors that lead to rapid innovation and incomparable content.

Second City Works uses those same methods to create events, content and professional development programs that drive personal grown and organizational improvement.
