    Rod Blagojevich Superstar! will open on the Second City e.t.c. stage in February.

    The Rod Blagojevich saga is eliciting its fair share of emotions, and now you can again add laughter to the mix.

    That's because The Second City is bringing back "Rod Blagojevich Superstar!" in a new location.

    The stage comedy about the rise and fall of Blago moves to the Metropolis Arts Centre in Arlington Heights.

    The show also includes characters portraying a foul-mouthed Patti Blagojevich, Sen. Roland Burris, Patrick Fitzgerald, Dick Mell and Lisa Madigan.

    The cast is known for continually adding new material to the show, so you can bet there will be plenty of tweaks incorporating the most recent developments.

    After all, truth is stranger than fiction -- and funnier.
