Interim Executive Producer
Anthony LeBlanc is the Interim Executive Producer of The Second City.
Most recently, LeBlanc has served as an Artistic Director for The Second City, as well as an on-set acting coach for Nickelodeon and part-time faculty member at Columbia College Chicago. LeBlanc is a Second City alum who wrote and performed in two original Chicago Mainstage revues, America: All Better and Taming of the Flu. He has been a longtime teacher and resident director for the company, directing several resident stage and theatrical productions including Soul Brother, Where Art Thou? for The Second City e.t.c.; the Helen Hayes-nominated Nothing to Lose (But Our Chains) at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company; the 105th Second City Mainstage revue The Winner...of Our Discontent; The Magic Negro and Other Blackity Blackness as Told by an African-American Man Who Also Happens to be Black at the Alliance Theater in Atlanta, Georgia; and The Second City’s Generation Gap at the Kennedy Center.
A native of Beaumont, Texas, LeBlanc performed with his sketch group “Boxaganga” while obtaining a Computer Science and Physics BS at Loyola University New Orleans. He hopes that his sketch directing helps him one day realize his dream of working for NASA, programming A.I. computer systems. He thanks Mom, Dad, David, Katie, Kennedy, Matt, his friends...and of course...Stephen Hawking.
