Biography

For over thirty years, The Second City has taken its act on the road, performing at colleges, performing arts centers, clubs, theatres, fundraisers, festivals, conventions, and more.

Performing a special medley of classic scenes, songs, and improvisation, The Second City's National Touring Company is always original, daring, and hilarious. Almost all Second City actors got their start in the Touring Company, including Bill Murray, Bonnie Hunt, Chris Farley, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jeremy Piven, George Wendt, and Tim Meadows.

The modern purveyors of sketch and improvisational comedy, including Saturday Night Live, SCTV, and MADTV all owe a debt to The Second City. After 45 years of being one of Chicago's most enduring comedy institutions their members have grown up to be some of the top names in American Comedy: John Belushi, Bill Murray, Betty Thomas, Alan Arkin, Tina Fey, Chris Farley, Bonnie Hunt, Steve Carell, and Stephen Colbert just to name a few.

The training ground of Second City is in the "Ivy League of Comedy." The graduates invariably leave Chicago, Toronto, or Detroit and come to Hollywood, where they do not just sit around; they get together and ply their art form. Alumni members of the Second City such as Dan Castellaneta (voice of Homer Simpson), Larry Joe Campbell (Andy on According to Jim), and Keegan Michael Key (actor, MADTV) often show up on our little stage to keep expanding the state of the art of improvisation with new forms and new ideas.
