The Second City

February 22, 2018 7:30 – 9 p.m.

Fresh, fast, and spectacularly funny, The Second City brings satire with all the bells and whistles: hilarious sketches made famous by Second City stars such as Tina Fey, Jason Sudeikis, and Stephen Colbert, as well as brand new scenes, songs, and improv straight from sold-out club shows in Chicago and Toronto.

Founded in Chicago in December 1959, The Second City is the world’s premier comedy club; has launched its own television shows in the United States and Canada, including SCTV and Second City Presents; and is the inspiration behind Saturday Night Live and Whose Line is it Anyway? “The entire recent tradition of American satire can be summed up in three words: The Second City” (The New York Times).

A who's who of comedy, the troupe’s notable alumni include Dan Aykroyd, James and John  Belushi, Steve Carell, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jane Lynch, Tim Meadows, Bill Murray, Mike Myers, Horatio Sanz, Ryan Stiles, and many others.

This must-see evening of comedy features some of Chicago’s best and brightest, as the legendary sketch and improv troupe celebrates nearly six decades of producing cutting-edge satire and launching the careers of comedy superstars.
