STAMFORD, Conn. -- Chicago City Limits is New York City's longest running comedy show, and troupe members make an appearance at The Palace Theatre Friday, May 6 at 8 p.m.
This performance will feature a lively and hilarious debate between "Bernie Sanders" and "Hillary Clinton." While some are saying the Democratic campaign is all but wrapped up, both candidates are courting victory and positioning themselves for the November contest. Secretary Clinton and Senator Sanders see Connecticut as a key battleground state and have agreed to return to Stamford to spar it out in front of voters when Chicago City Limits returns to The Palace Theatre.

Founded in Chicago by George Todisco and actors participating in the workshop program at The Second City, the company relocated to New York and began performing regularly at some of the city’s premiere comedy venues including Catch a Rising Star, The Improv, and The Comic Strip.
The ensemble established its own theater in New York City in 1980, which began a continuous run now numbering over 10,000 Broadway performances.
The Chicago City Limits National Touring Company travels throughout the United States and the world, and has appeared at such diverse venues as Lincoln Center, the Smithsonian Institution, Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon, the Super Bowl, and, at colleges and regional theaters throughout the country.
No two Chicago City Limits productions are ever alike. The troupe creates this one of a kind theatrical experience by taking suggestions from audience members and crafting scenes – plays, stories, mini-musicals, game shows and more -- on the spot. The result is an evening of theater that is totally unique.
