The Second City's Totally Bonkers Improv Showdown

About The Show

The Second City is taking family entertainment to mind-blowing new heights! Bring the whole gang to watch two teams of totally top-notch improv maniacs face off in a comedy showdown of totally bonkers proportions! Fueled by your weirdly wonderful suggestions and totally amazing audience volunteers, our teams will do whatever it takes to earn your votes--and your laughs.

Especially created for kids (and the old fogies in charge of them), this show has all the elements for an epic time out together. High-energy characters? Check! All the Fortnite dances you can handle? Check! A scene with a puppy, an alien, and a thousand-pound watermelon? Anything can happen...and probably will!

Want the fun to continue? Let your funny person try their hand at improv in this 50 min drop-in class after the show.  Taught by performers from the show you just saw, this is a great way for your comedian to get on stage and have some fun while learning some of the techniques The Second City use to create the show you just saw!  $15 per student, parents welcome to stay and watch.  SATURDAY SHOWS ONLY
