The Winner…of Our Discontent
The Second City’s latest revue The Winner… of Our Discontent asks if it’s broken, should we fix it? Chicago’s premier sketch comedy troupe finds big laughs in the country’s collective disappointment and fears. If you’re scared for the future of America, guess what? So are we! From pot smoking moms to Russians targeting Altoona, Iowa to a few suburban dads who are sure they have it all figured out, this show sifts through all of the divisiveness to find a winner. (Spoiler: It’s the Cubs and that’s it.)
Every Tuesday to Sunday night.
