Chicago’s legendary sketch and improv comedy theater returns to Iowa City with “The Second City Hits Home,” a new show featuring hilarious sketches, songs and improvisation about Iowa City, as well as material from the famed Second City archives. This is a must-see night of comedy featuring some of Chicago’s brightest comedy stars in a special 2-night engagement.

Doing what they do best, The Second City finds laughs in everything from Iowa City’s history, events and hot button issues to headlines from Iowa City Press-Citizen and mixes these with a generous portion of classic Chicago-style sketch and improv created by some of Second City’s most lauded alumni, including Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray and more.

The Second City celebrates 55 years of cutting edge satirical revues and continues to deliver the leading voices in comedy while touring the globe.

Experience Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 in Iowa CityJune 10 - July 10th

The Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 red frames, each in the shape of a small house, set alongside one another will be placed in three main areas of the pedestrian mall. Inside each “casa”, there is a swing and a ring of lights lining the bottom. When the house is empty, the lights glow dimly to welcome the next visitor. Once someone steps inside, the lights release a more powerful glow, indicating that someone is home.
