Red River Radio's Chuck Smith spoke with Second City member Allison Banowsky who shared her story and also revealed a little of what audiences can expect of the Summer Blockbuster performance.

There will not be real explosions. But surprises abound as Chicago’s famed Second City ensemble combines great sketch comedy with on-the-fly improv to create new sidesplitting, knee-slapping (and sometimes groan-inducing) realities out of thin air.

Recommended for mature audiences.  For performance and  ticket information
