 Second City Comedy Biography

Seminal comedy troupe named after Chicago's inferiority complex spawned the definitive Saturday Night Live cast, as well as clubs in Toronto & Detroit, and elsewhere in the Chicago area (including the next-door Second City ETC). Alumni include Dan Ackroyd, Alan Alda, John Belushi, John Candy, Chris Farley, Shelly Long, Gilda Radner, Martin Short, George Wendt, and even the voice of Homer Simpson (Dan Castellaneta).

The comedy revues (there have been ninety-some on the mainstage) skewer politicians and pop culture, mixing pre-honed stuff with a few bits of improv. The stale sketch-blackout-sketch format has been loosened considerably, regaining the city's comic crown. Tickets range from $12-$19.50; you'll be hustled for food and drink before and during the show. The cast improvs post-show every night but Friday, which you can stay and watch for free...Or show up (free!) just for the improv...

Speaking Topics
  • Corporate Comedy "An Evening with The Second City"

  • Second City's Barack Stars.

    The Second City takes a bite out of the beltway in Second City's Barack Stars, an evening of political comedy straight from the land of Lincoln, Obama, and Blagojevich--well, two out of three isn?t bad. Featuring sketches and songs, Second City's Barack Stars provides bi-partisan hilarity ripped from the day's headlines. From the endlessly enigmatic commander in chief to his terrifyingly tiny chief of staff--political gaffes, power plays, and an insatiable media all make for the targets in Second City's Barack Stars.

  • Funny Business: The Live Customized Comedy Show.

    The Second City's most popular offering, custom shows are clean, one-act revues prepared and customized specifically for your company. A third of the show is made up of original scenes crafted by our writers and based on the day-to-day life of your company and business. Additionally the revue includes equal parts "best of" Second City sketches and improvisation--all carefully chosen to fit your audience. You approve all content and we work hard to make it suitable to your organization.

  • Interactive Talk Show.

    Our talk show helps organizations transform what could be a series of podium speeches into an opportunity for your executives to connect with an audience. You get to pick the guests, and our host will tee-up their talking points with light questions and a little fun--will also include "commercial breaks" as live scenes throughout the show. These "commercials" are custom-written sketches that tee-up the topics of the day, generating hearty laughs and a great transition into discussions between our host, the guests on stage, and the audience who we involve via roving microphone (Thanks, Donahue!).

  • BizQuiz: The Game Show About Your Company.

    Our customized game show, complete with an over-the-top host and competitive contestants, is a great way to convey some interesting facts and insights about your company, new products, or internal process changes. This customizable show has an open format and the Second City can even use your executives or guests to show off their knowledge on the unique details of the industry, such as "name that acronym" and "buzzword bingo."
