As part of Second City’s annual 24-hour improv and music benefit, Chicago’s golden boy Steve Albini will join an interesting line-up that even includes Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis. We’re pretty sure they were all BFFs anyway, but if you want to participate in a marathon of comedy and music, check out this production. Via press release.
Confirmed improvisers include Ryan Archibald, Emily Candini, Dina Facklis, Scott Goldstein, Shelly Gossman (Writer – Sullivan & Sons), Brendan Jennings, Michael Patrick O’Brien (Writer – Saturday Night Live), Sam Richardson, Tim Robinson (Featured Cast – Saturday Night Live), Rebecca Sohn, Rich Sohn, and Fred Armisen (Cast – Saturday Night Live, Portlandia).
Confirmed musical performers are Fred Schneider, Kim Deal, Jeff Tweedy, JC Brooks & The Uptown Sound, Bonnie Prince Billy, Jenny Gillespie, Robbie Fulks, Steve Albini, and The Blisters will entertain with live music throughout the marathon. Set times will be available soon. Included on this year’s auction block is a private living room concert with Jeff Tweedy for you and 29 of your closest friends. Last year this item sold for $23,000.
