About this show

Chicago produced a president, and a string of corrupt governors, so who better to make fun of all of it than The Second City - celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. In Barack Stars: The Wrath of Rahm, Chicago's favorite son is given his satiric due, with an economy on the ropes and maybe just a touch of swine flu for good measure. Perfecting the art of comedy revue with sketches, songs and a little improvisation, The Second City storms the Capital City to tackle partisanship, health care, the politics of race, a terrifyingly tiny Rahm Emanuel, and a host of other headline-grabbing personalities.
