It’s time for women everywhere to reclaim the C-word: comedy!

We’ll bet you 72 cents on the dollar (or much, much less!) you’ll fall head over patriarchal heels for the women of Second City as they nevertheless persist in this mimosa-and-madness-fueled feminist foray that takes on everything from having it all to having that sick feeling your government is trying to send your sex back to the Middle Ages. It’s time for women across the nation to collectively reclaim comedy!

She the People plays on Fridays at 8pm, Saturdays at 8pm and 11pm and Sundays at 7pm. at UP Comedy Club, located at 230 W North Ave, 3rd Floor of Piper’s Alley, Chicago. Tickets, starting at $26, are available at the Second City Box Office (230 W. North Ave, First Floor, Piper’s Alley), by phone at 312-337-3992 or online at
