About This Show

The Second City renews its long-running, hugely-successful partnership with Woolly Mammoth by shining the light of satire on a nation eclipsed by its own divisiveness. In Black Side of the Moon, a cast of Chicago’s funniest and most audacious African American sketch and stand-up artists—the first of its kind ever assembled by the troupe—deconstructs and reconstructs Blackness through comedy, illuminating the challenges of the past and the promises of the future. Where are we headed as a country? We’ll see you on the In Black Side of the Moon!
