Be the David Bowie of Whatever You Do

I, like everyone else who was lucky enough to be born with ears, was devastated to hear the news of David Bowie’s passing. He was an artist, an innovator, an icon, a hero.

Welcome to Refugee World!

Welcome to Refugee World!

Hi there…I’m Alabama governor Robert Bentley, and the federal government says that whether we like it or not, a lot of you refugees are going to be living down here in our sweet home state soon. And we know y’all might not feel too comfy here in the Heart of Dixie–after all, you’re mostly widows and orphans seeking safety from your war-torn homeland who may have a difficult time adapting to the cultural differences.

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.
