The iconic comedy club that brought America comedic champions such as Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Bill Murray, and many, many more is coming to Eau Claire for a live performance. Based in Chicago, Second City has earned its stripes throughout the years for its always original and always hilarious sketch comedy. On Thursday, Feb. 11, a troupe from Second City will bring the touring show “Hooking Up With The Second City” to Eau Claire’s State Theatre. The show will feature a variety of hilarious sketches, songs and delightful improvisation all focusing on love and relationships in the spirit of Valentine’s Day.  In the 55 years Second City has been producing satirical revues, they’ve learned a lot about love, and they’ve been making light of all the crazy things we do for it ever since. The performance will provide a modern mix of romance, rancor and everything in between that will leave audience members both laughing and crying. It’s perfect for a memorable couples night out ... or even for a first date! Enjoy the show, then catch food and drink deals at The Plus, where local laughmakers Clear Water Comedy will host “Tales Of Love & Loss,” an atypical stand-up show, where local comics and guests will tell their own crazy – and hilarious – love stories.
