Late Live Show cancelled

I know I'm slow on posting this...that's what happens when you work on getting a book self-published within a short time frame. Anyway, Second City announced the cancellation of The Late Live Show. It's one of those shows that I wished I had the chance to have seen in person.

Here's what the AV Club notes on the matter:
According to the show’s co-creator and host Joe Kwaczala, the reason given for the cancellation was that the show’s producers were “using the Second City name to further the show.”
In other Second City news, the Up theater is gaining steam on opening. I'm gonna be interested in seeing just how it can compete with Zanies as far as stand-up goes.

One final thing to note: Adam Peacock replaced Tim Robinson in the Mainstage cast.
