Things We All Just Want To Forget This Memorial Day

Things We All Just Want To Forget This Memorial Day

There is so, so much about 2017 that we’d all like erased from our brains.

So, what’s The Second City?

The Second City has been bringing the funny for over 50 years, but here’s the short version.

We 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, you can find us all over the world.

We’ve also taken improv off the stage, expanding our business to include collaborations with corporate clients, and television and film productions.

And we have more than a handful of successful Second City alum that we aren’t too modest to mention, like Tina Fey, Chris Farley, Bill Murray, and Keegan-Michael Key.
