The Second City Project
Global presents the latest, freshest and funniest sketch comedy in The Second City Project: a surprising, fast-paced and twisted world of unforgettable comic characters. Starring some of the best performers from Second City's Toronto and Chicago theatres, the show features two parallel and hilarious worlds; a sleek cinematic world of filmed sketches, and a semi-scripted writers room where the writer-performers show a glimpse of their hilarious and very human off-stage personalities.
The Second City Project started as a question – if SCTV was made in 2015, what would it look like? To answer the question, Executive Producers Andrew Alexander and Bob Martin put together a cast of some of the most exciting young comic actors in North America. The Second City Project features showrunner Bob Martin (Slings & Arrows, The Drowsy Chaperone) along with Second City alumni writer-performers Marty Adams (The Ron James Show, Hemlock Grove), Tim Baltz (Drunk History, Veep), Caitlin Howden (The Sunday Service), Sam Richardson (Veep), Kayla Lorette (That's So Weird, Roller Town) and Steve Waltien (Chicago Fire). Together they created their own television sketch comedy that’s absolutely fresh and of its generation.
