Chicago’s famed Second City, ALA/Proquest Scholarship Bash, June 29

CHICAGO — Chicago’s legendary sketch comedy theatre, Best of The Second City, will appear from 8 - 10 p.m. on Saturday, June 29 at the ALA/ProQuest Scholarship Bash during the 2013 ALA Annual Conference, featuring some of the best sketches, songs and improvisations from The Second City’s 52-year history. Conference attendees can have a laugh while raising money for an important cause.

From the company that launched the careers of Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray and more, comes the next generation of comic legends in an evening of hilarious sketch comedy and Second City’s trademark improvisation. The Second City is a Chicago landmark and a national treasure, celebrating 52 years of cutting-edge satiric revues and continuing to deliver the leading voices in comedy, while touring the globe. ALA Annual Conference attendees will enjoy being part of the show and playing along with the laugh-out-loud event, whether the content is ripped from the morning headlines or offering a classic gem from The Second City archives.

The money raised from this year's Bash will provide scholarships for graduate students in library and information studies, including Spectrum. Tickets are $25 (nonrefundable) and are going fast. You must register for the conference (or log in if you have already registered) to purchase tickets.
