In the hands of skilled and creative comedy minds, improvisation can produce magical unexpected results. And few do improvisational comedy better than the performers at Second City. I’m lucky enough to work just a block away from Second City’s Toronto theatre, and have attended their Thursday night improv performances several times.
Over the past 50+ years comedy legends such as Dan Ackroyd, John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray, John Candy, Martin Short and dozens of others have developed their skills on the Second City stages in Chicago and Toronto.
August 20 starting at 11am CST, present day members of Chicago’s Second City will perform live improvised music videos on the Nissan Pathfinder Facebook page in the ‘12 Hour Improv-tastic Road Trip‘. Visitors can offer suggestions and enter to win one of two trips to see The Second City in Chicago or Toronto.
And, as for the connection between the Nissan Pathfinder and improvisational comedy? I have no idea. But, the press release mentions that it’s about next gen improv for the next gen SUV.
