The Second City Comedy Group will perform two shows at 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept., 13, in Forest Roberts Theatre at Northern Michigan University. Tickets cost $2 for NMU students and $5 for the general public. They are available from EZ Ticket outlets at the Superior Dome, Forest Roberts Theatre, TCF Bank in the University Center and the Vista Theatre Thrift Shop in Negaunee. Second City was established in the 1950s by a group of students from the University of Chicago. In the 1960s, when the environment was filled with social and political satire, Second City expanded beyond Chicago to the national level. The group became even more popular when a few alumni became featured performers on “Saturday Night Live.” Second City is located in Chicago, Detroit, Toronto and Los Angeles and has boasted such actors as Mike Myers, Bill Murray and John Belushi.
