Unelectable You at Proctors

A touring show from Second City an Slate (yep, the website) called Unelectable You will be at Proctors October 28. Tickets are $20 and up, and currently on sale.

Show blurbage:

Wouldn't you like to take this whole election process and rip it apart with your bare hands? Why not let Second City and Slate do it for you!
Yes, Second City and Slate present Unelectable You: The Second City's Completely Unbiased Political Revue, a fast-paced combination of sketch, improv, music and multi-media taking a hard-hitting look at our election process. We're stuck with two of the least popular candidates in election history, and many people will be using this election not to vote for someone, but against. From breaking down Hillary and Donald, to exploring the media circus, to looking at ourselves to see if we're the problem, this show will examine what it means to be electable - or not.

Given that the reality of this presidential election has already often played like a dark parody, spinning the thing for (good) laughs seems like it could be a challenge. But a few of the reviews were able to turn seemed to think the show pulls it off (though apparently the Slate segments have the mouthfeel of advertorial).

The show is Friday, October 28 at 8 pm on the Proctors main stage.

... Great experience. Fast pickup times. I was chatting with one of my drivers about potential Saratoga -> Albany types of drives or similar. He is actually based in Delmar, and said that as a driver, Lyft has a feature that you can pick a fare based on the direction you want to end up in which I thought was interesting. He was driving around all night and lives out in Delmar but ended up more towards Saratoga when he was about to call it quits. His last fare was a drive from Saratoga back towards Albany and got him pretty close to home as well. That makes me feel better about catching a ride to a place further in NY if I happen to need one.
