Second City, the improv comedy company that brought you Steven Colbert and and Bill Murray, satirizes the 2016 election cycle.
In this new era of viral gaffes and social-media campaigning, of rebels preaching to the disenchanted on both sides of the aisle, who even knows what makes a presidential candidate electable anymore? Join Slate and the Second City as we try to figure it out, in an evening of comedy, insight and topical musings that we’re calling Unelectable You.
Through sketch comedy, improvisation and a whole lot of audience interaction, the satirical muscle of Second City will harness the often contrarian and cutting edge voice of Slate to take aim at the election, the candidates, the spin and even Slate itself. The result is a thoughtful, funny and completely self-aware evening that’s purely Second City, and purely Slate.
