<![CDATA[Second City's Game Night]]> THE SECOND CITY'S GAME NIGHT


"Supercharged with off-the-cuff hilarity" - The Real Chicago


What happens when Chicago’s best improvisers are tossed head first into a medley of classic 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 commercial breaks, the laughs come rapid-fire as host, Joey Bland, segues seamlessly from one game to the next. Have a special talent? Think your linguistic skills are better than most? Have something bizarre in your purse? 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.


CAST: Joey Bland, Brendan Dowling, Paul Grondy, Matt Hovde, Megan Hovde, Beth Melewski, Tim Paul and Sue Salvi

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 commercial breaks, the laughs come rapid-fire as host, Joey Bland, segues seamlessly from one game to the next.

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.

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 commercial breaks, the laughs come rapid-fire as host, Joey Bland, segues seamlessly from one game to the next. Have a special talent? Think your linguistic skills are better than most? Have something bizarre in your purse? 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.

Have a special talent? Think your linguistic skills are better than most? Have something bizarre in your purse? 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.

<![CDATA[Dave Attell]]>
Dave Attell was the creator and host of “Dave’s Old Porn” on Showtime. “Dave’s Old Porn” has featured such talent as Whitney Cummings, Chelsea Handler, Adam Carolla and Daniel Tosh.

Dave’s new Stand Up Series, DAVE ATTELL’S COMEDY UNDERGROUND and his new one hour special, ROAD WORK are both currently airing on Comedy Central.

He was named one of the “25 Funniest People in America” by Entertainment Weekly Magazine. His caustic wit, rapid-fire delivery and his choice of material that can best be described as "very adult" has earned him the reputation as a "comic's comic." But if you ask Attell, he’d say, "I’m just trying to get some laughs and sell some drinks."

In 2001, Attell used this love of booze and laughter to create and host the hit series, "Insomniac with Dave Attell" for Comedy Central.   A travelogue show in which Attell goes from city to city looking for late-night fun, The New York Times called the show, "a doubly rare beast, a comedy without rancor and a travel show about the virtues of the American underdog." To Attell, the Insomniac show is more of a cross between "Girls Gone Wild” and “Cops.” 

After four seasons of “Insomniac,” Attell taped several hour-long “Insomniac” specials overseas in Japan, Germany, England and Brazil. Once back in the states, he headed out on a thirty-five city theatre tour ending in Vegas, where he hosted a two-hour special for Comedy Central featuring Sean Rouse, Greg Geraldo and Dane Cook, some of the biggest comics in the country.

Dave Attell has made numerous appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Late Night with Conan O'Brien,” “The Howard Stern Show,” “Last Call with Carson Daly” and “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”. He also appeared in Chris Rock’s cult film "Pootie Tang”. Other television credits include FOX's "Arrested Development," NBC's "Ed," HBO, Comedy Central’s "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn" and his own half-hour stand-up special "Comedy Central Presents Dave Attell”.

When not on the road, Attell makes regular appearances at the Comedy Cellar in New York City.

In 2001, Attell used this love of booze and laughter to create and host the hit series, "Insomniac with Dave Attell" for Comedy Central.   A travelogue show in which Attell goes from city to city looking for late-night fun, The New York Times called the show, "a doubly rare beast, a comedy without rancor and a travel show about the virtues of the American underdog." To Attell, the Insomniac show is more of a cross between "Girls Gone Wild” and “Cops.” 

After four seasons of “Insomniac,” Attell taped several hour-long “Insomniac” specials overseas in Japan, Germany, England and Brazil. Once back in the states, he headed out on a thirty-five city theatre tour ending in Vegas, where he hosted a two-hour special for Comedy Central featuring Sean Rouse, Greg Geraldo and Dane Cook, some of the biggest comics in the country.

Dave Attell has made numerous appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman,” “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” “Late Night with Conan O'Brien,” “The Howard Stern Show,” “Last Call with Carson Daly” and “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”. He also appeared in Chris Rock’s cult film "Pootie Tang”. Other television credits include FOX's "Arrested Development," NBC's "Ed," HBO, Comedy Central’s "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn" and his own half-hour stand-up special "Comedy Central Presents Dave Attell”.

When not on the road, Attell makes regular appearances at the Comedy Cellar in New York City.

<![CDATA[Second City's Game Night]]> THE SECOND CITY'S GAME NIGHT


"Supercharged with off-the-cuff hilarity" - The Real Chicago


What happens when Chicago’s best improvisers are tossed head first into a medley of classic 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 commercial breaks, the laughs come rapid-fire as host, Joey Bland, segues seamlessly from one game to the next. Have a special talent? Think your linguistic skills are better than most? Have something bizarre in your purse? 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.


CAST: Joey Bland, Brendan Dowling, Paul Grondy, Matt Hovde, Megan Hovde, Beth Melewski, Tim Paul and Sue Salvi

<![CDATA[Second City's Game Night]]> THE SECOND CITY'S GAME NIGHT


"Supercharged with off-the-cuff hilarity" - The Real Chicago


What happens when Chicago’s best improvisers are tossed head first into a medley of classic 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 commercial breaks, the laughs come rapid-fire as host, Joey Bland, segues seamlessly from one game to the next. Have a special talent? Think your linguistic skills are better than most? Have something bizarre in your purse? 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.
