I finally made it to the famous Second City comedy show at their theater in Chicago recently. This theater group has been training and churning out world famous comedians for decades now, including several Saturday Night Live stars. They still put on multiple live shows at their Chicago location each week (as well as touring companies and Toronto and Hollywood locations). The show I saw was pretty typical, containing dozens of short sketches, one right after another, nearly all of them hilarious. Most of the show was scripted, but there were a couple bits where they interacted with the audience and did some improvisation, and these really showcased the brilliance of the cast. Second City is in the Old Town neighborhood of Chicago which is a great place to get a bite to eat or a drink after the show.
