Get the Perks

Our Chicago location has three theaters that can accommodate anywhere from 15 to 500 people! In the past we have played host to all kinds of events, from birthday and bachelor parties to corporate gatherings and student groups.

By bringing your group to The Second City, you are not only experiencing an evening of laughs at a historical venue, but you will also benefit from the following:

  • Open shows seven days a week
  • Tickets start at $17
  • Flexible refund policy
  • Group seating
  • Lunch and dinner packages available
  • No service fees!

Our theater is conveniently located in the heart of Old Town in Chicago, a short walk from several bus routes and the Brown Line Sedgwick stop on the El train. We have parking spaces and bus parking zones available as well, so no matter how you get here, it won’t cause you too much stress!

Dinner and a Show

It can be stressful planning a meal for a larger group of people. After all, you want to get your belly laughs in on a full stomach! We partner with 10 local restaurants so you can enjoy lunch or dinner before or after the show. These restaurants offer specials for groups visiting The Second City! All you have to do is pick the restaurant, and we handle it from there.

If you are scheduling a private performance, we can also customize a menu from our in-house catering service. We can accommodate a seated meal, passed appetizers or just smaller snacks; whatever works best for your group. The menu is available for viewing on our website.
