The cast of The Second City's 100th Revue asks, "Who do we think we are?" and after the two-hour show the answer to who these people are is very clear: some of the funniest improvisers to ever grace the Chicago comedy stage. Keeping their performance upbeat and electric with the delivery of every joke delightfully on point, it's a wonder how the performers have the energy to keep up with the long run of the show, let alone seem to have such a fantastic time performing it every night. But luckily for us, they don't seem to show any signs of growing tired of it anytime soon.
Hitting on everything from political issues to the local color of Chicago with offbeat sketches and classic improvisation sprinkled throughout, the 100th Revue really does have something for everyone. With moments for each of the cast members (Edgar Blackmon, John Hartman, Holly Laurent, Katie Rich, Mary Sohn and Steve Waltien) to really shine and show their unique character work and improvisational skills, it wouldn't be surprising to see one of these comedians picked up for SNL in the coming seasons.
"The 100th Revue: Who Do We Think We Are?" now plays Tuesdays through Sundays at The Second City, 1616 N. Wells St. For more information and to order tickets, visit http://www.secondcity.com.
