The Legendary Second City
Founded in 1959 by Paul Sills, along with Howard Alk and Bernie Sahlins, The Second City
was experimental and unconventional in its approach to both theatre and comedy. By the 1980’s, The Second City had become much more than a small cabaret theater on Chicago’s north side. Since then, The Second City has continued to produce the premiere comic talent in the industry. From Mike Myers to Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert to Tina Fey – The Second City imprint is felt across every entertainment medium.
The Cast of Characters
The Second City’s “A Cure for the Common Comedy” features up-and-coming improv performers Adam Archer, Danny Catlow, Alison Gates, Eve Krueger, Greg Ott, and Lauren Walker. Each comedian has spent many years in the Chicago improv scene, performing at venues like the Annoyance. These veteran performers are sure to have audiences roaring with laughter! Don’t miss out on the chance to see these young comedians before they’re stars.
