Chicago’s Second City – the comedy troupe that gave us SCTV and inspired Saturday Night Live and Whose Line Is it Anyway? – has taken its hilarious act on the road for the past 59 years, bringing laughs, zany improv and inimitable sketch comedy to cities across America. Their alumni list reads like a Who’s Who of Comedy, including Alan Arkin, Joan Rivers, Martin Short, John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd, John Candy, Eugene Levy, Stephen Colbert, Keegan-Michael Key, Tina Fey, Chris Farley and Mike Myers, among many others. Witness the next generation of comedy superstars putting their spin on the storied company’s greatest hits, re-booted and re-imagined for today.
“The entire recent tradition of American satire can be summed up in three words: The Second City.”
