Who gets blamed more than Mayor Miller? Nobody, says the cast of Second City.
In the company’s most recent show, Shut Up and Show Us Your Tweets, which opened Tuesday, the cast satirizes a summer spent stepping over garbage, watching crazy conservatives south of the border criticize our health care system, and trying to decipher the meaning behind Mr. Miller’s tweets.
Who’s to blame for the bad weather, incessant protests, and dead American celebs? Our politicians, of course. In the show Harper, McGuinty, and Miller are all called out, followed by a laundry list of mistakes made by each.
As a quick preview, here’s a run-down of Miller’s misfortunes:
After being eaten alive for half-baked attempts to fulfill promises like providing green bins, supporting local artists, and preventing a bridge to the island David Miller’s face now seems to be melting into a long, dopey Sesame Bert. And we made him this way, the cast says: aging and grey.
Should we riot through the next 18 months of Miller’s rein? We could, but that would require a permit. Yawn.
Instead, suck it up, says Second City.
After all, the line is delivered: at least we’re not Buffalo.
