Reaching her 6’2” stature at age thirteen was bound to give Jeanne Robertson a unique perspective and her path to becoming such a popular humorist is certainly atypical. As Miss North Carolina 1963, Jeanne found herself speaking to the public on a near-daily basis and (in a blow to beauty contestant stereotypes) it became evident that Jeanne could really “work a room” with her warm sense of humor. Hence, she was named Miss Congeniality when she competed in the Miss America Pageant. Over the years, Jeanne has been the recipient of umpteen prestigious awards, authored three books (Humor: The Magic of Genie, Mayberry Humor Across the USA, and Don’t Let the Funny Stuff Get Away), produced seven DVD/CD titles, and she can be heard regularly on Sirius XM’s “Laugh USA” comedy channel. Her “Looking for Humor” Tour presents a clean, family-friendly evening of laughs from her down-home, life experience-based yarns. As Jeanne puts it, she speaks “two languages fluently: English… and Southern.”

The Second City is such a revered American institution and brand that it’s my understanding Good Housekeeping refers to itself as having “The Second City Seal.” Sure, GH is a smidge snooty but they’re not that narcissistic as to pull an eponym. And with all due love for other comedy troupes like The Groundlings, there’s just no topping the Second City’s storied, over half-century history of sketch comedy and improv. This is the company that put Alan Arkin, John Belushi, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Rachel Dratch, Chris Farley, Tina Fey, Jane Lynch, Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, Amy Sedaris, David Steinberg and so many more into orbit. These two “Laugh Out Loud” performances by the newest generation of cast members are primed to produce epic live comedy and to be the very definition of “You should’ve been there!”
