CHICAGO – A pair of comedians who honed their craft in the “Windy City” are returning together to put on a show.
Tiny Fey and Amy Poehler are joining up for the “Restless Leg Tour” that will include Chicago among its four performances.
The pair will take the stage at the Chicago Theatre on Saturday, May 20, with presale tickets going on sale on Wednesday, February 15 at 10 a.m. (CST). Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, February 17 at 10am.
For both Fey and Poehler, it’s a return to their comedic roots as each started their journey in entertainment right here in Chicago. After going to the University of Virginia, Fey moved to Chicago to take improvisational comedy classes at The Second City, eventually performing there and at the Improv Olympic.
Poehler began taking classes at Improv Olympic and would eventually join a Second City touring company with Fey, which is where their friendship began. They would perform together and Saturday Night Live while also headlining two feature films – “Baby Mama” and “Sisters.”
Both Fey and Poehler also had supporting roles in “Mean Girls” in 2004.
