So December 16th is said to be the actual anniversary of Second City, this year they celebrated their 50th anniversary. And so, in honor of this milestone our cruise director helped us to celebrate by changing our show night to the 16th and bringing out a cake and saying some kind words about us after our second show. The captain who just came on board this week watched our show and also said some nice things.
Once of the highlights for us though was meeting Jake a make a wish kid. Kid is kind of a weird descriptive since he’s 18 and about 6’5″. He and his family joined us on stage after the show and when we asked him what he had enjoyed the most about his cruise so far he said, “your show”. He also had this incredible sense of humor, doing callbacks to our show and also poking a bit of fun at his own situation. It was such an honor to be a part of his experience and to have him be a part of ours.
Afterwards, Silas our cruise director had us come up to the Mardi Gras nightclub for a champagne toast and we got in on the dancing.
In Chicago we have a friend named Jet, who is incredibly talented and just a wonderful delight. She’s a gifted performer, with what I would call a bit of an ethereal, eclectic personality. Well we got to meet what the woman we called “future Jet”. She was a French woman dancing with absolute joy and she looked like how we imagined Jet will look when she’s 60. Though to be fair, none of us believe that Jet will be on a cruise ship when she’s 60.
