Wednesday To-Do: Brewhaha! with 'The Second City'

BREWHAHA! WITH THE SECOND CITY
6 p.m., Arkansas Repertory Theatre. $25.

It's not an exaggeration to say that comedy as we know it wouldn't exist without the Second City. The 50-year-old Chicago-based improv troupe has long been a breeding ground for “Saturday Night Live,” which, of course, itself has spawned dozens of movie and TV heavyweights. Here's just a short list of some of those Second City alums: John Belushi, Steve Carell, John Candy, Stephen Colbert, Chris Farley, Bill Murray, Mike Myers, Gilda Radner, Harold Ramis, Amy Sedaris and Martin Short. Expect political commentary and social satire from sketches and improv. To kick off the show, the theater is hosting “BrewHaHa!” on opening night. An annual (sometimes multi-annual) pre-party, it kicks off at 6 p.m. with beer and casual appetizers. Tickets for the other nine performances range from $20 to $35, so $25 for free beer and apps and the show is clearly the way to go. Second City hangs around through Oct. 18.
