Comedy and The Second City Coming Monday to SWOSU


A night of comedy is planned this Monday, February 8, when Chicago’s comedy powerhouse The Second City performs at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford.

The 7:30 p.m. performance featuring improv comedy at its best is part of the university’s Panorama series, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary series.

The event will be held in the Fine Arts Center. Tickets are available at or in the SWOSU Public Relations & Marketing Office, Room 205, Administration Building. Advance tickets for the event are $5 for individuals with a valid SWOSU I.D. and $10 for others. All tickets at the door will be $20.

Many of comedy’s biggest names have hit the road with The Second City Touring Company, including Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Amy Poehler, Steve Carell, Bill Murray, Jason Sudeikis, Key & Peele’s Keegan-Michael Key and more.

Brian Adler, chair of the Panorama Committee, said The Second City will be an entertaining show as the superstars of tomorrow present “Hooking Up with The Second City,” a show about love being held in conjunction with Valentine’s Day.

“The Second City was here in 2014 and the audience thoroughly enjoyed and laughed throughout the show,” Adler said. “We are looking forward to their return visit.”
