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.

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.
Cast: Chris Alvarado, Rob Belushi, Amanda Blake Davis, Kate Duffy, Bob Ladewig and Robyn Norris
Musical Direction by Dan Wessels
Directed by Frank Caeti
