The Second City opened its doors on a snowy Chicago night in December of 1959, and has since grown to become the world’s premier comedy club, theatre and school of improvisation—with live shows every night in Chicago, Toronto and Hollywood.
So, what’s The Second City?
The Second City has been bringing the funny for over 50 years, but here’s the short version.
They began as a small comedy theater, and have grown to become today’s leading brand in improv-based sketch comedy. With a variety of theaters, training centers and full-time, touring ensembles, that you can find us all over the world.
If it has to do with funny, The Second City literally does it all! Stand up, sketch comedy, improv... oh yeah and they offer training in all of these areas as well. Classes for adults, kids, professional actors or corporate 9-5 ers looking to break out of their shells.
