Remember Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus (the ridiculous relationship book that sold a bajillion copies and was written by a "Dr." who bought his degree from a diploma mill)? The book: not funny. The people that bought it seriously thinking it would help them understand the opposite sex and fix all their relationship problems: hilarious. As far as Im concerned, romantic desperation is comedy gold, and the talented improv comedians of Chicagos legendary Second City comedy troupe are mining it for all its worth in their new show, Sex and the Second City. A musical telling the story of a couple bound for divorce and their lawyers (who unwittingly romance each other in a "Lonely Lawyers Chat Room"), Sex is sure to tickle the funny bone without resorting to jokes about who left the seat up.
