The cast told us from the outset that they wanted to make a little difference in our lives and they were successful as there is nothing like a good belly laugh.

I recommend their show and think the upcoming short run based on the 1977 movie Slapshot will be quite funny.

Go to the late show and stay for the 20 minutes of improv at the end.

“Lots of Laughs!”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

This was a super fun evening for not a lot of money! I would do this again. About an hour and 1/2 of sketch comedy with a great cast of comedians.

We frequent live theater and comedy shows, but were disappointed. The acting was not much better than what I have seen in high school productions (with the exception of 1 actress). Staff friendly. Most people in the audience seemed to enjoy it, though.

“Great show, lots of fun!”
Reviewed June 21, 2013

We've been to Second City Chicago in the past, and were really looking forward to seeing the Toronto show as well. We were not disappointed! The cast was incredible, and while some of the sketches left a bit to be desired, stay at the end for the improv--this is where the cast members really shined! Some of the improv was so well-done, it seemed scripted! The only downside is how closely they seat you...we shared a table for 2 with two strangers, and forget about getting up for anything once the show has begun.

“Good show but cramped seating”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Good show reasonably priced but the seating is cramped and uncomfortable. Highly recommend it if you like sketch comedy and improv. The cast is very talented.
