The Second City’s Improv All-Stars are taking leave of Chicago, their home base, for a night of improvisation and sketch comedy at 8 p.m. Monday at the University of North Texas’ Murchison Performing Arts Center.
The comedy company has had troupes and stage shows in Chicago and Toronto for more than 50 years, and has launched the careers of the likes of John Candy, Fred Willard and Eugene Levy. More recently, Second City has groomed Tina Fey and Steve Carell.
Three touring companies are part of the Second City tradition, and it’s one of the touring companies that will travel to Denton.
The audience should come prepared to decide the outcome of the show. No topic or subject matter is off-limits.
The evening of comedy is presented by the UNT Fine Arts Series.
Tickets cost $10 for adults, and $5 for UNT faculty, staff and alumni association members. UNT students can get free admission with a student ID.
The Murchison Performing Arts Center is located on the north side of Interstate 35E at North Texas Boulevard.
