Di'd you know?
Even if President Bill Clinton is not impeached, Vice PresidentAl Gore could still be our next commander-in-hief
if he puts together a good run for the 2000 presidential elections. Remember, two years in politics is an eternity
and even the most shocking and highly-publicized scandals eventually fade from public memory. Almost one third,
13, of our total 42 presidents served as second-in-command before occupying the oval office. They were:
Martin Van Buren
Chester A. Arthur
Harry S. Truman
Lyndon B. Johnson
Richard M. Nixon
Gerald R. Ford

The Second City touring company will be bringing their zany, offbeat brand of
comedy to the Michigan League Ballroom tonight at 8 p.m.
Second City grPou
b rngs comedy
show to Ann Arbor
By Cortney Dueweke
For the Daily
For students seeking a source of
relief from the stress of midterms and
strain of studying, laughter could be the
Tonight the touring company based
out of The Second City Detroit sweeps
into Ann Arbor with an 8 p.m. show in
the Michigan League Ballroom. The
show boasts an ensemble cast of Lisa
Melinn, Jeff Fritz, Antoine McKay,
Topher Owen, Marc Warzecha, and
Mary Vinette, all Detroit natives who
have been seen frequently in comedy
clubs throughout the state.
The Detroit touring company has vis-
ited Ann Arbor before, but this is its
first visit to the University campus.
Ann Arbor is only one of the stops on
the touring company's state wide jour-
ney; recently, it has performed at uni-
versities throughout Michigan such as
Michigan State, Oakland, Western,
Northern, and Eastern, as well as for
corporations, dinner theaters, and clubs
across the state.
This year marks important anniver-
saries for all The Second City establish-
ments. The three Second Cities in
Chicago, Toronto and Detroit are cele-
brating their 40, 25 and five-year
All three Second Cities have their own
separate touring companies. The Toronto
troupe performs at Canadian venues,
Detroit's cast ventures throughout
Michigan, and Chicago's comedians tour
the remainder of the United States.
The troupe also performs Tuesdays at
8 p.m. through the month of October at
The Second City Detroit. Also, in cele-
bration of its fifth anniversary, the main
stage cast is beginning a new show titled
"Daimlers are a Girl's Best Friend" on
The new show, said associate produc-
er Julie Clement, is a retrospective of
the past five years and includes all the
best material from Detroit's main cast.
These "regulars" can be seen in Detroit
Wednesday through Sunday at 8 p.m.,
with another show at 10:30 p.m.
Fridays and Saturdays.
Tonight's performance will consist of
songs, scenes and improv games in
which the audience will have a say at
deciding the show. "It's a compilation
of the entire Second City history," said
Clement. "The show is full of political,
social and atypical humor."
And the most important question -
why should students abandon their
books and papers to attend a night of
inexpensive comedy close to home?
If that in itself isn't a good enough
reason, Clement had another take on it.
"Shows are a lot of fun and definite-
ly unusual, not like any comedy show
you've seen before;' she says. "It's a
good time ... they make you think at
the same time they make you laugh,
and vice versa. It's all reality based ...
our situations and lives are funny. We
just take reality and show it to you"
