The Second City - Chicago’s (and arguably the world’s) greatest comedy theater and training center for students of improvisational comedy. Commonly known as “improv” to we Chicagoans - and anyone else who hasn’t been living under a rock the past 50 years, American theatrical comedic satire was officially born at The Second City in December 1959. Since then, improv has been nurtured and raised to a sophisticated and entertaining “middle-age.”
