Second City Hits Home City LimitsThe Second City opened its doors on a snowy Chicago night in December of 1959.  No one could have guessed this small cabaret theatre would become the most influential and prolific comedy theatre in the world.

The Second City developed an entirely unique way of creating and performing comedy.  From Mike Myers to Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert to Tina Fey, The Second City imprint is felt across every entertainment medium.
