If your parents asked you not to speak about it at the dinner table, chances are it will be a topic at The Second City. Founded in Chicago in 1959, The Second City has become the premier training ground for the comedy world’s best and brightest.
Its alumni list reads like a Who’s Who of American comedy, with such names as Mike Nichols, Elaine May, Alan Arkin, Joan Rivers, Robert Klein, Peter Boyle, Harold Ramis, John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, George Wendt, Martin Short, John Candy, Bonnie Hunt, Tim Meadows, Chris Farley, Mike Myers, Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Horatio Sanz, Ryan Stiles and countless others.
Not only will an evening seeing The Second City provide audiences with the chance to see comedy stars in the making, but they will also have the opportunity to see absolutely hilarious satire and cutting-edge improvisation, as well as classic material from Second City's comedy archive of five decades.
