Second City and Slate have announced a traveling stage co-production, “Unelectable You,” set to play more than a dozen cities across the country just in time for the upcoming presidential election. The tour will begin its Chicago run in August. The full tour schedule will be announced soon.

“Unelectable You’ will utilize scripted and improv to explore topics from campaign trail scandals to how voters consumer political news and everything in between. Writers for both Slate and Second City will collaborate on the show, to be directed by Second City vet Matt Hovde.
