Pittsburgh Public Theater
January 6 – 10
We can’t think of a better way to embrace the New Year than by LOLing with legendary comedy troupe The Second City.
They’ve launched the careers of Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell—to name a few—and now their talented touring show rolls into town for five nights. Their first show about Pittsburgh since 2008’s Three Rivers Runs Through It, Chicago’s comedy superstars are gearing up to take the Burgh by storm with N’at’s All Folks!, a brand new sketch comedy and improv show directed by Anthony LeBlanc.
The irreverent and celebratory roast will have you cracking up via witty jabs and clever commentary featuring local Steel City politics, our world-famous approach to speaking n’at (dubbed “America’s ugliest” accent in 2014), and of course, plenty of sports talk and black and gold humor.
In addition to the local angle, The Second City will perform favorites from their beloved and inimitable repertoire of fast-paced sketch comedy, wacky songs and trademark improv.
A who’s who of comedy’s best and brightest, the cast features Marlena Rodriguez, Alan Linic, Lisa Beasley, John Thibodeaux, Liz Reuss, and Scott Morehead, along with music director and onstage accompanist Dane Halvorson.
A cash bar will be open in the theater’s main lobby. Purchase tickets.
