The Second City, an improvisational comedy group, did it again Saturday evening at the Dallas City Performance Hall, part of the Off Broadway On Flora Series in Dallas.

The comedy group drew in a sold out crowd during its 55th Anniversary Tour, leaving guests desiring more of the hysterical short form comedy they display during their two, 45-minute acts.

“I always enjoy seeing comedy performed live, especially improv, where anything can happen, “ said Trent Kennedy, an audience member of Saturday night’s performance.

The show focused on popular sketch comedy from The Second City’s 55-year history. During the hour and a half performance, nothing was off limits, and some portions of the show allowed audience members to shout out suggestions to be acted on.

Topics of sketches ranged wildly, and included a young girl searching for a friend in her record player, an elderly woman enlisting in the army and a live manual on how to drive in Texas, all leaving the crowd roaring in laughter.

“Just being able to evoke that strong of an emotion from anyone is such as powerful thing, “ said Adam Schreck, a cast member of Saturday night’s performance.
