A presentation of the Center’s Off Broadway on Flora series, The Second City will be performing four shows. 

As part of the Touring Company’s two-act review, performers will draw from the archives of material The Second City is famous for. With its own brand of topical sketch comedy, hilarious songs and improvisation that changes with every performance, The Second City has resident stages in Chicago and Toronto, and a touring ensemble that combined entertain more than 1 million audience members each year. 

Now familiar faces on television programs and movies, many actors in comedy got their start with The Second City such as; John Belushi, Mike Myers, Bill Murray, John Candy, Catherine O’Hara, Tina Fey, Steve Carell and more than 500 others. An evening with The Second City provides audiences with the chance to see comedy stars in the making.
