Second City has always been to me cutting edge/political insights. This show just tried too hard...it was painful. A lot of the jokes and skits relied on sexual innuendos and just really weren't funny. The first skit after the intermission was...continued

Understandably, improv can be pretty iffy. This group relied on naughty words and references to get most of their laughs. I think local high school Comedy Sportz groups are funnier, although one 2nd City skit about couples playing Pictionary had...continued
