District of Columbia
Jul 17, 2012
Global Entrepreneurship Week/USA starts off with a laugh this year at Southeast Missouri State University when The Second City performs on November 12 at the Bedell Performance Hall. The Second City is the legendary improv-based sketch comedy group that launched the careers of dozens of instantly recognizable comedians—including Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Mike Myers and Tina Fey as well as core cast members of Saturday Night Live when it launched in the 1970s (John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd and Gilda Radner). The improvisational spirit of its touring group is bound to inspire any entrepreneur in the audience.
