which comedy/improv show with teens?

Our family will be in Chicago for three days in late March and I am looking for some evening activities. We have two teens, ages 15 and 18, and we have been to ComedySportz twice. Any suggestions for other comedy/improve shows to check out? Any thoughts on the I Love Lucy show? Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

ComedySportz' shows are all-ages so they are fine for teens. Second City shows (more sketch comedy developed using improv techniques rather than an improv performance) are usually fine for teens also (think SNL-level content). Improv shows at Improv Olympic or the Annoyance vary depending on the group (in terms of both of quality or content), and to be honest I've not paid attention as to whether teens are in the audience or not; I'd recommend checking with the venues directly. However, IO groups I'd recommend for teens are the Deltones and Improv Shakespeare (esp. if they are studying Shakespeare in HS).
