This was my 2nd time to 2nd City - First time was 29 years ago. It was very funny then. It is not now. It was like watching a playground full of snarky 6th graders who were not talented enough to be funny on their...More
This was a great night out! A collaboration of 5-7 younger actor/comedians doing short skits. It was a good time. If you get there early, you certainly don't need to pay for the upgraded seats (we did) but they are small tables and you are...More
Chicago is a great place to go anytime for anything, but a trip there is not complete without catching a Second City offering. We've been several times and have recommended it to multiple friends. It's always been a hit. Smart, funny, on time, on point,...More
Enjoyed the performance overall, but seriously - I feel compelled, I need to make a shout out for the performances of Terrance Rogers, Jr and Jennifer Cheung. They are absolutely captivating when on stage - watch these two! Terrance when you were on stage, everyone...More

We have been coming for years and seen the likes of Steve Carell, Tina Fey, Mike Meyers, and Bonnie Hunt among others. Was this the most talented cast? Perhaps not but there were some good skits nevertheless. Granted it’s gotten a lot more expensive over...More
Just saw GASLIGHT DISTRICT at the e.t.c. Theatre at Second City, and loved every minute of it. It's a little confusing at first to book a show, as there are multiple theatres with several shows going on at the same time, but the show we...More

The Lincoln Park Conservatory is one of the most popular attractions in the area, with the Chicago History Museum a close second.
