Hailing from Chi-Town and birthing modern comedy greats such as Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, touring improv troupe the Second City is ready to slay Aventura with its latest comedy revue, Happily Ever Laughter. Digging deep into the Second City’s archives, Happily Ever Laughter features some of the best sketches, songs, and improvisation from the comedy theater’s 50-year history, in addition to hilarious scenes “ripped straight from the morning headlines.” With material comin’ off the top of the dome and some scripted pieces to boot, the Second City has a habit of keeping it more than just interesting — especially when they’re taking jabs at any and everything (including their own audience members).
Known for churning out SNL superstars faster than a Kardashian engagement, the Second City delivers its latest revue with a cast of comedy’s shiniest little snowflakes. Who knows, you just might have the next Steve Carell or Bill Murray right in front of you. Bear witness to the future of funny Thursday at the Aventura Arts & Cultural Center (3385 NE 188th St., Aventura). The show starts at 8 p.m., and tickets cost $44.
