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.
