The Paramount Theater announced the 5th Annual Grand Marquee Award Gala featuring a special performance by world-renowned improv group, The Second City, on Thursday, May 7, 2015.
Chicago’s legendary sketch and improv comedy theatre returns to the stage at The Paramount Theater with “The Second City Hits Home,” a new show featuring hilarious sketches, songs, and improvisation about Charlottesville as well as material from the famed Second City archives. This is a must see night of comedy featuring some of Chicago’s brightest comedy stars in a special one-night engagement.
Doing what they do best, The Second City finds laughs in everything from Charlottesville’s history and events to hot button issues, and mixes these with a generous portion of classic Chicago-style sketch and improv created by some of Second City’s most lauded alumni including Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray and more.
