You’re gonna want to sit down for this news. We’re warming up the bentwood chairs and ready to invite you back inside our theater! Join humans on stage making humans in the audience laugh as we toast being together again. Our Mainstage performances are a celebration of our resilience, our relationships, and our mutual need to get back into the habit of making eye contact. We’ve been pushed apart both physically and politically for way too long…now it’s time to enjoy some good, clean (or at the very least...ultra-hygienic) togetherness.
THIS NEWS MIGHT REQUIRE ALL-CAPS. The Second City’s favorite lower-case stage is back, live and in-person! Join our raring-to-go cast of comedians for this laugh-packed adventure. From improv games to classic sketches from the archives, this experience is a great way for us all to laugh our way into the new normal. We can’t wait to welcome you back to The Second City e.t.c, where laughs (and masks!) are mandatory.
The Second City’s Happy Hour features Second City’s funniest talent of today shaken up with some of our top shelf alumni streaming laughs live, right into your home!
The Lockdown Improv Jam is a fun, welcoming and encouraging improv jam for students of the Second City Community held on the first and third Friday of every month. It's founded in Second City's "Yes And, Creativity & Respect" philosophy and is led by Second City improv instructors Janet Davidson & Brie Watson. It’s a place to learn and grow while staying safe at home. All levels of experience are welcome!
