THE SECOND CITY: Look Both Ways Before Talking

April 10 - 29, 2018 Temple Theater

"The elephant in the room’s got nowhere left to hide when The Second City returns to Des Moines with a side-splitting, satirical look at all the things that divide us. Tackling hot-button issues and cringy social situations head-on, Look Both Ways Before Talking features sketches and songs written by some of the famed comedy troupe’s biggest alumni, like Tina Fey and Steve Carell. See the next generation of comedy giants performing the best of The Second City’s archives along with some of that world-famous Chicago improv. No matter which way you lean, you’ll laugh until both sides hurt!"

“The dollar ticket price [for the Applause Series shows] is unbelievable. Without it, we would't be able to come. The people who support this program need to be applauded because it gives kids great opportunities.”
