Great Date Giveaway: Tickets to Second City at Walton Arts Center

When is the last time you laughed — hard? We’re talking about honest-to-goodness belly laughing. If it has been too long since you’ve laughed or since you’ve had a good date night or fun girls’ night out, we’ve got just the ticket.

In fact, we’ve got TWO tickets for one lucky mama to an incredibly funny show called Second City for President — hitting the Walton Arts Center stage at 6p.m. this Saturday, August 18, 2012.

ABOUT THE SHOW: Some might say our political process is often laughable. And you’ll definitely be laughing about it when the comedians in Second City for President take the stage. They’ll make jokes at the expense of both sides of the political aisle as well as a few that are unpolitical, uncensored and hilarious.

Second City is an improvisational comedy troupe from Chicago that has been around for more than 50 years doing satiric skits. This show will have scripted and non-scripted elements and audience members will love being part of the show and playing along with this next generation of comic legends as they poke fun at the election.

  1. It makes me laugh when I hear my daughter laugh or when our dog does something very funny!

  2. I make people laugh by acting like I am laughing without smiling. It is so ridiculous, that it makes people fall over in stitches. 🙂

  3. I can always get a good laugh from my 9 year old daughter! She says the funniest things and just keeps us laughing all day!

  4. My boys can make me laugh incessantly with their So You Think You Can Dance competitions.

  5. I always read the “weird news” iff I need a good laugh. Crazy happenings in this wacky world.

  6. My 74lb dogchild jumping in my arms like a toddler every afternoon like I’ve been gone a month – even though it’s just been a day. She can always make me smile, no matter what.

  7. My son’s imagination..always entertaining. And watching him take care of his baby sister, he tries so hard!

  8. I always laugh when I watch my son play video games. Whenever his character jumps, punches or kicks in the game, he acts out the move complete with grunts and “hi-ya!” screams, etc. It cracks me up! Love it!

  9. My kids! Especially the older one entertaining the baby! It completely melts my heart at the sound of their laughter and seeing them make each other smile so much! And at 5 years old now, the older one’s personality makes me cringe and question my parenting more than I ever thought I would, but she is also hilarious! Even the worst days are made better by these two!

  10. My kids never fail to make me laugh….it can be something funny to them, or something only funny to me…but they crack me up all the time!!

  11. My husband and I actually laugh at ourselves a lot. We can make any serious situation a lot lighter by laughing. Parenting two little ones has given us lots of material too. : )

  12. What always makes me laugh is the way my daughter talks about turning 2 and having a birthday party! She is so excited about going to the pool for her birthday and eating cake, she tells everyone everyday!! 🙂

  13. My 3 year old son always says the funniest things and he doesn’t even realize it!

  14. No matter what trouble my kids have been that day they always seem to make me laugh. Love it.

  15. Children!! They can ALWAYS make me laugh, and they never even realize how entertaining they are!!

  16. My son gets the giggles at night when I’m putting him to bed especially when he’s really tired. His giggles are so contagious that I can’t help but bust out laughing with him, even when I’ve had the most stressful day!

  17. I always crack up remembering a phrase that my kindergartener picked up at school.

  18. I always laugh when I see or hear something funny. Recently I read a comic strip on a fellow teacher’s door, and I laughed so hard everyone was staring at me…HILARIOUS!!!
    Wish I could share it!

  19. My 7 year old, Cooper, ALWAYS makes me laugh!! He’s got quite the sense of humor:-)

  20. I am a special education teacher and no matter how stressful my day becomes my students can completely bring me to my knees. It may be something they say or just something they do, but they make me laugh and sometimes that is all I need.

  21. The sound of anyone else laughing is contagious to me. So if I am alone and need a laugh, I just turn on a short hulu sitcom or youtube something from one of my favorite comedians.

  22. My husband or daughters laugh! Completely contagious and always makes me laugh along no matter how bad the day!
