Comedy lovers take note! Second City is hosting a celebratory roast for George Wendt to benefit two charities, Gilda's Club Chicago and The Second City Alumni Fund.

I Can’t Believe They Wendt There

It’s a night guaranteed to destroy one of the world’s most beloved comedy legends, George Wendt – all in the name of charity.

Join Roastmasters Jason Sudeikis, Bob Odenkirk, Keegan-Michael Key, Betty Thomas, David Koechner, Tim Kazurinsky, David Rasche, Julia Sweeney and Jeff Tweedy for an evening of comedy benefitting two good causes.

Chicago’s one-and-only Second City will be hosting this special night from its iconic Mainstage. UChicago’s Val Bodurtha has been helping organize the roast as a production assistant. So, count on her to be there, too, come Saturday, backstage, lending a hand.

Likewise, the night’s selected beneficiaries, Gilda’s Club Chicago and The Second City Alumni Fund, are also counting on you to attend. Founded in honor of the late Gilda Radner, Gilda’s Club works to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community, while The Second City Alumni Fund has raised more than $500,000, and counting, for alumni with health and financial challenges.

“Top Shelf” ticket packages are already SOLD OUT…but “Mezzanine” seats have just been added!
