Two of the funniest improv comedians working today are taking the stage together at Balboa Theatre, and you can participate in the show. Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood are best known as cast members of the British and U.S. versions of the popular improv show Whose Line Is It Anyway? These two comedy pros show you how it's done in a show entirely driven by audience participation. Audience members yell out suggestions and Mochrie and Sherwood will run with it, creating hilarious scenes made up on the spot. Throughout the show, audience members are brought up on stage to add an extra element of the unexpected. Whether you're in your seat or find yourself on the stage, the comedians will make it funny -- all you have to do is have fun. Learn More

Second City had the San Diego audience laughing in (often painful) self-recognition with this brilliant sketch comedy show. Part rehearsed, part improvised with audience suggestion (and sometimes coercion), they feasted on the veritable buffet of scandal, self-importance and silliness that defines "America's Finest City." From the local sports teams to Comicon, from the original mission settlement to bike cops on patrol, from gay marriage and legalized marijuana to the odd cultural shifts between neighborhoods (Santee, Pacific Beach and La Jolla were skewered particularly well), they covered a lot of local ground in a 90 minute show. Speaking of skewering, mayor Bob Filner all-too-appropriately (and inappropriately -- yet lovingly) sandwiched the evening's laughs and was liberally sprinkled throughout the show. His recent peccadilloes, though bad for America's Finest City, were well-timed comic gold mined hilariously by Chicago's Second City. Genius!
This show contains strong language and mature content.
