[ARCHIVED] Chicago’s Famed Second City To Appear At Canton’s Village Theater


The curtain will go up on October 1st at 7 p.m. on this special engagement of “Free Speech! (While Supplies Last),” an irreverent look at America’s electoral insanity. This special show features political satire made famous by Second City stars like Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert and Keegan-Michael Key, as well as brand new scenes, songs and improv straight from their sold out shows in Chicago and Toronto. This must-see evening of comedy features some of Chicago’s best and brightest in a special one night only engagement.

Fresh, fast and always spectacularly funny, The Second City is celebrating nearly six decades of producing cutting-edge satirical revues and continues to launch the careers of comedy superstars.

“The Village Theater at Cherry Hill is thrilled to host The Second City for another special engagement in Canton,” said Canton Arts Coordinator Jennifer Tobin. “It’s great to witness emerging talent from the same training grounds that include such famous alumni as: John Belushi, Mike Myers, Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, Steve Carell, and over 500 comedic stars.”

Tickets for The Second City are $30, and are currently available 24/7 online at or by calling the Village Theater box office at 734/394-5300x3 Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tickets are going fast, but may also be purchased one hour prior to show time, if still available.
