Built on the foundations of improvisation, the second city has become one of the most well known comedy clubs in Chicago as well as across the United States. Bernie Sahlins, Paul Sills & Howard Alk opened the Second City in 1959. Paul Sills is known by many as the father of improvisation.
The company has employed many of the comedians that we know and love including: Tina Fey, Steve Carell, Amy Poehler an Stephen Colbert.
They have shows almost every day with tickets from $5 and up. If you are interested in seeing one of these amazing performances make sure to buy your tickets ahead of time as they often sell out. See the link above for their show schedule.
