Second City Takes on Writers Week 2018

Crazy jokes and amazing acting from Second City rock students at Writers Week 2018.


Writers Week is a week during which special actors and writers from different companies come and inspire Antioch students. The different talks about developing skills with writing and acting taught the students a lot.

One outstanding performance from Second City, an improv troupe located in Chicago. Second City originated in the 1950s. This comedy group that has talent like nobody else, they act on the spot with no script, students enjoyed the performance.

The performance consisted of different scenes that the students suggested, and although they didn’t use props, the Second City actors engaged the crowd with funny jokes. The students definitely benefited from watching Second City and were truly inspired with fulfilling stories about acting.

“My favorite part is just how they are so energetic which pushes and good vibes towards the audience,” sophomore Alec Sanchez said. “Second City was just amazing, they keep you entertained and make sure that the audience is involved.”

They were overall very enjoyable to watch, students from Antioch will always remember their corny jokes and their never ending improv skills.
