Second City satirists adopt San Diego for topical teasing

Nothing is sacred when it comes to comedians taking on the follies of San Diego in Second City Theatricals’ “The Good, The Bad and The I-5,” on stage in the La Jolla Playhouse’s Mandell Weiss Forum through Sept. 1. When the writers swept into town last month to garner material for the show, they struck pay dirt.

La Jollans weren’t spared their satirical slings and arrows — among the skits are roasts of folks in La Jolla, Santee and El Cajon. There are also playful pokes at The Zoo, Children’s Pool, Comic-Con, the U-T, and of course, Bob Filner sprinkled throughout the show.

Tickets from $15 are available at (858) 550-1010. LaJollaPlayhouse.org
