The Rick Blog — Live on Stage features Second City Chicago main stage alumnus, writer, lawyer, college professor and blogger (!) Rick Thomas in a non-virtual reality —on stage! Come see Rick Thomas think at the top of his lungs. Rick is not always right but he is most often true. Rick’s often didactic and angry nature is oddly endearing — quirky, funny, provocative, bitter, strange (Rick wrote these words, so …draw your own conclusions…) Join Rick for an exhilarating and fearless exploration of reality — or an exhausting rant on a bad night. Think and feel as hard as Rick does dammit! (Rick sometimes likes to swear.) Rick improvises the show based on the voluminous writing in his blog.
