Second City Comedy comes to Camden

Mar 01, 2014
The Second City Comedy Troupe will perform one night only at the Camden Opera House on Elm Street/Route 1.

Camden — The Second City Comedy Troupe from Chicago’s legendary sketch comedy theater will bring its “Happily Ever Laughter” show to the downtown Camden Opera House Friday night, March 14. The show, featuring some of the best sketches, songs and improvisations from The Second City’s 52-year history, starts at 7:30 p.m.

The Second City is truly a Chicago landmark and a national treasure, celebrating more than 50 years of cutting-edge satiric revues and continuing to deliver the leading voices in comedy while touring the globe. Thanks to both scripted and improvisational elements, audiences always enjoy being part of the show and playing along with the next generation of comic legends.

Many of comedy’s brightest stars have hit the road with the company including Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Amy Poehler, Steve Carell, Bill Murray, Keegan Michael Key and, most recently, current “Saturday Night Live” stars Cecily Strong, Tim Robinson and Jason Sudeikis. Whether ripped from the morning headlines or a classic gem from the archives, The Second City always makes for a laugh-out-loud evening.

Tickets are $25, $15 for those younger than 17, available at camdenoperahouse.com; by calling 470-7066; or at the Camden Town Office weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Support is provided by Relais and Chateaux Camden Harbour Inn/Natalie’s Restaurant in Camden, where a meet-and-greet with cast members will be held immediately following the show. There also are dinner and overnight stay/show packages; for more information, call               236-4200.
