Famed Chicago comedy troupe, The Second City makes their return to the Pittsburgh Public Theater for a brand new sketch comedy and improv show inspired by none other than the hometown pride we all hold near and dear to our hearts. Appropriately titled “N’At’s All Folks!”, the Anthony LeBlanc-directed performance will include Steel City politics, hilarious commentary on our world-famous Pixburgh accent, sports stories, and plenty of black and gold humor.

Several performances of “N’At’s All Folks!” will be held at O’Reilly Theater throughout the first full week of January, with shows taking place from Tuesday, Jan. 6 through Saturday, Jan. 10. Cast members include Marlena Rodriguez, Alan Linic, Lisa Beasley, John Thibodeaux, Liz Reuss, and Scott Morehead, plus stage manager, Scott Flores-Deter, and music director/onstage accompanist, Dane Halvorson. In addition to the local angle, the troupe will perform a handful of skits, wacky songs, and fan favorites from numerous improv gigs.second city

Second City has been recognized for their trademark improv and fast paced sketch comedy shows since their inception in 1959, and they quickly became one of the most influential comedy theaters in the world. Subsequently, the establishment has grown from a small comedy stage to a massive entertainment company providing laughs to over one million guests each year. Along with Touring Ensembles, Second City holds residencies in Chicago and Toronto, and has helped launch the careers of many well-known actors and comedians, including: Tina Fey, Bill Murray, John Candy, Steve Carell, Mike Myers and Stephen Colbert, among multiple others.

Designed by world-renowned architect Michael Graves, the O’Reilly Theater was created for two purposes: to create a downtown home for the Public Theater and to create additional venues for theater, music and other performances. It is the fourth theater project of The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust and the fifth Cultural District theater, as well as the only downtown performance venue with a thrust stage that is surrounded by the audience on three sides.

Tickets for “N’At’s All Folks!” will run from $30-$50, with a steep discount for students and young adults under 26. Cabaret tables with cash bar services are also available for reservation. Tickets can be purchased here, or by calling (412) 316-1600.
