Rising stars shine at CSUS

Celebrating its 42nd anniversary of inspired comic lunacy, the Second City National Touring Company will stop by California State University, Sacramento for a night of sketch and improvisation comedy. The event is at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 25 in the University Union Ballroom.

Since opening in Chicago in 1959, Second City has continuously toured the world with its trademark satire. The company's alumni list reads like a "who's who" of American comedy and includes such stars as Alan Arkin, John Belushi, Bill Murray, Robert Klein, Gilda Radner, Joan Rivers, Mike Myers, Dan Aykroyd, Chris Farley, Martin Short, George Wendt, Shelly Long, John Candy and a host of others.

Along with resident theatres in Chicago, Toronto and Detroit, Second City operates three national touring troupes. Featuring a blend of classic comedic scenes, songs and improvisation performed by a six-member ensemble, the company also combines the best material from its established and rising stars to create an evening of laughter.

The event is sponsored by the University's UNIQUE programs. Tickets are $10 general and $7 for students. Tickets are available at the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or at at (916) 278-6997. Additional media assistance is available by contacting CSUS public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
