A fabulous night out with lots of laughs. The talent showcased was remarkable. Gave us lots to talk about for days with such relevant subject matter. An excellent show!

We attended a revue at the second city for the first time. It was a hilarious, fun-filled evening with belly- aching laughter all around. I can’t believe we’ve lived in the city for 25 years and hasn’t been before. We will be back for sure!!

These people really know how to put a smile on your face and make you want to pee your pants. Great Job!

Went to see The Best is Yet to Come Undone and laughed our faces off, especially at Chris Wilson’s ‘The *sshole Magician’ sketch. MAGIC!!! (Trip Advisor wouldn’t let me post full profane word 😂) Would definitely recommend this performance. Tickets were reasonably priced, too.

My wife and I had a great time watching "the best is yet to come undone." We loved the venue and the show was hilarious. Will definitely be back again.

Have attended half a dozen Second City shows but this one left me flat. There were only a few skits where I really laughed and I felt most of the comedians were pretty novice.More

Hi Cynthia, Thank you so much for your feedback. I'm sorry your experience didn't meet The Second City Experience we aim to create. Improv allows us the freedom to fail and test content. Because of that, sometimes our content hits and sometimes it misses. Sorry...More

Hilarious improv/skit comedy show in downtown Toronto. Went with my teenagers to an afternoon show in Dec 2018 and laughed so hard I cried. Fast-paced and very topical. Great value for the money. Small, comedy-club like atmosphere where the drinks are great and the food...More

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination

and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

We did general admission, but were sure to show up early, and got fantastic seats. It's so small, I'm not sure if there is a "bad seat" but if you couldn't get there early, reserved seating is probably better.
