Hilarious, spontaneous, topical and insightful – The Second City is the most famous brand in live comedy. Performing a blend of classic scenes from their nearly fifty year archive, material ripped from the days headlines and their trademark improvisation, a night with The Second City is a laugh filled, once in a lifetime event.
Alumni of the famed comedy theatre include such recent performers as Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell and Rachel Dratch – as well as Mike Myers, Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, Martin Short, John Candy, Catherine O’Hara, Fred Willard, Chris Farley, Julia Louis- Dreyfus, Dan Aykroyd, John Belushi, Harold Ramis, George Wendt, Peter Boyle, Robert Klein, Alan Arkin and more.
The New York Times calls The Second City "A Comedy Empire." In addition to its live stage shows, Second City boasts the largest school of improvisational comedy in the world; a thriving corporate communications division; an exclusive deal with Norwegian Cruise Lines that puts the brand in front of millions of cruise passengers every year; and a television and film division that recently sealed a development deal with NBC/Universal. -The Second City
