Laugh Out Loud: Comedy Fun Downtown

Time to laugh with Second CityIf your NCAA bracket blowing up has brought you to tears (come on; we know you didn’t pick UMBC), we know how you can turn that frown upside down. There are two hilarious events heading to town. They are guaranteed to make you forget all about the money you’re losing to your co-worker who chose her bracket based on mascots (of course, she chose the Retrievers!). So, mark your calendars for March 30 when Second City performs at the Lincoln Theatre and April 7 for the hilarity of Jay Leno, and get ready to laugh.

Laugh with Second City

You likely know Second City as the starting place of many Saturday Night Live alumni, like Steve Carrell, Mike Myers and Tina Fey. Now, you can laugh along with a new crop of improv geniuses as they present Look Both Ways Before Talking. The cast presents scripted and improvisational skits full of political and social satire. For sure, the comedy skirts the edge with thought-provoking but hilarious sketches. Then, when one of the tour members hits it even bigger, you can say you saw him or her back when. Tickets are $30 - $35 and available from the CAPA Ticket Center, or by calling 614.469.0939

Let Leno Make You Laugh

Jay Leno was once the king of late night, and for good reason. Yes, he ruled the airwaves with clever comedy that appealed to all. Now, you can enjoy the man known as the “hardest working man in show business” when he hits the Palace Theatre stage. A People’s Choice Award winner, you are sure to love his “everyman” comedy stylings. And, if you haven’t tried the new hotspot The Keep, head to the Leveque Tower. Whether you go before or after the show, stop in for a crafted cocktail and delicious nosh. Or, try one of the many downtown locations just waiting to make this the perfect night out. So, grab tickets from the CAPA Ticket Office, Ticketmaster or by calling 614.469.0939. They run $38 - $99.
