The origins of Undateable lie in the hilariously bizarre results of an outrageous experiment. On a lark, playwright Robyn Norris created an online dating profile for the weirdest, least desirable person she could imagine. Within days, there were hundreds of earnest (if strange) messages to her wackadoo profile, "TracyLovesCats." So Norris immediately upped the ante, creating 38 uniquely flawed profiles, ranging from MarryMeNowStat to Old4U75 to PioneerInABox. Now, the real-life responses these profiles attracted, collected over months of "research," are acted out live by members of the famed Second City company. Frank Caeti (MADtv) directs one of the funniest -- but also most honest and heartfelt -- portrayals of internet dating ever presented on stage. Learn More

The venue is through a metal door and upstairs, but once up there the theatre is small and intimate. The show was really funny. There was a lot of comedy for a good price! I recommend; money well spent for entertainment and laughter.

I was so disappointed. I've been to the Second City in Las Vegas and laughed until my stomach hurts and thought it was great. Sadly the local perfomance I attended was horrible. There were only two cast members who weren't very funny and the...continued

Fun little stage performance. The show was just okay. One guy in particular stood out, but the rest of the comedians were just supplemental. The check in staff seemed preoccupied and could care less if they had an audience or not. Not the most...continued

Fridays at 9:00pm: *_*Undateable*_
Second City Hollywood ventures into new territory with Undateable. It’s not sketch. It’s not improv. It is comedic. And it’s based on real life people searching for love online. After a phone call from a friend asking for advice, Robyn Lynne Norris created a crazy, insane cat lady profile and posted it on OKCupid (the country’s most popular free online dating website). TracyLovesCats / 36 / Female / Straight / Los Angeles, California only talked about her kitties. “I love KITTIES! If you don’t love kitties then you won’t love me. Beep, boop, beep, bop.”
Within days she received hundreds of messages from men. Robyn, single at the time, was shocked that such an “undateable” personality could be so popular. She enlisted the help of her friend Bob Ladewig. They held a photoshoot with some friends and posted 38 Fake “undateable” character profiles across the country in the top 10 cities for online dating. The results were shocking. And hilarious. Undateable is a comedic show that tracks real people and real responses, interacting with their fake characters. It’s a scientific experiment about the online search for love.
