What happens when Chicago’s best improvisers are tossed head first into a medley of live game shows? Come laugh your way through Second City’s Game Night and find out! From celebrity-guessing to fill-in-the-blankety-blanks, charades to feuding families to improvised characters, the laughs come rapid-fire as the emcee segues seamlessly from one game to the next.

Have a special talent? Think your linguistic skills are better than most? Ready to beat the buzzer? Get on stage and change the game! Audiences participate at every turn, taking the show a different direction each night as the whip-smart cast toes the line between absurdity and genius in a way that only game shows and improv can achieve.

Tickets are required for both students and guests and will be  available online during Family Weekend registration (late August, 2017) and will also be sold in-person during Family Weekend check-in. Limited tickets may be available at Smith Auditorium 30 minutes before showtime.
