Old Town, Second City Comedy Club

Second City (photo by K.Sark)

“The Second City was the only [work place] where I experienced institutionalized gender nonsense. For example, a director of one of the main companies once justified cutting a scene by saying “The audience doesn’t want to see a scene between two women.” Whaaa? More on that later. […] [The Palin/Clinton SNL sketch] easily could have been a dumb catfight between two female candidates. What Seth and Amy wrote, however, was two women speaking out together against sexism in the campaign.[…] Not that anyone noticed. You all watched a sketch about feminism and you didn’t even realize it because of all the jokes. It’s like when Jessica Seinfeld puts spinach in kids’ brownies. Suckers! […] That night’s show was watched by ten million people, so I guess that director at The Second City who said the audience “didn’t want to see a sketch with two women” can go shit in his hat.” (Tina Fey, Bossypants, 2011)
