If You Can’t Beat It, Mock It

Grab a cocktail, take a seat and let the insanity of this year’s election season wash over you in the form of a live comedy performance from The Second City, who return to San Diego for a run of their show, “The Second City: Free Speech (While Supplies Last!)” (July 29-Aug. 21) at the famed La Jolla Playhouse.

The Second City is the leader in improv-based sketch comedy, and boasts esteemed comedians like Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert and Keegan-Michael Key as alumni. In the grand tradition of improv comedy, the only way to make sense of the modern-day political circus is to mock it - openly and on a stage in front of an audience, preferably.

If you’re fed up with CNN, Fox News and all the rest of them, if you can’t handle any more radio blowhards and bloggers or even your friends on Facebook opining their beliefs into the digital sphere, make sure you don’t miss a performance of the stinging satire, “The Second City: Free Speech (While Supplies Last!)”. Tickets can be purchased online at or by calling (858) 550-1010.
