The Performing Arts Center will present Second City for three performances Jan. 27-29 at 8 p.m. in Ramsey Concert Hall. The comedy improv troupe returns by popular demand in a new show, Happily Ever Laughter.

Based in Chicago, Second City is making its third Ramsey Hall appearance, following sold-out shows in 2010 and 2012. The company has launched the careers of countless comedy stars including Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Amy Poehler, Jason Sudekis, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Bill Murray and Joan Rivers.

With a combination of sketches, songs and improvisation, Second City has been amusing audiences around the world for more than 50 years. Whether it’s ripped from the morning headlines or a classic gem from their archives, Second City provides comic entertainment that The New York Times praises as “legendary.”

Tickets for Second City are $40 with special discounts for UGA students. Tickets can be purchased at the Performing Arts Center box office, online at or by calling 706-542-4400.
