Tackling all the ridiculous elements of the holidays, The Second City proves with comedy that ’tis the season to be jolly. Touring members of the iconic comedy theater perform their Nut-Cracking Holiday Revue, which includes scripted and improv-based sketches exploring such hypothetical situations as a couples therapy session attended by the biblical Joseph and Mary. The Second City has played an important role in developing much of this nation’s sense of humor over the last 50 years — a very small sampling of the group’s illustrious alumni includes Alan Arkin, Gilda Radner, Mike Myers, Stephen Colbert, and Tina Fey. The show takes place at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7, at the Lensic Performing Arts Center (211 W. San Francisco St.). Tickets ($27 to $44) are available by calling 505-988-1234 and at www.ticketssantafe.org.
