ABOUT THE SECOND CITY

Rooted  in  the  groundbreaking  improvisational  games  of  Viola  Spolin,  The  Second  City opened its doors on a snowy Chicago night in December of 1959, and a comedy revolution began. The small cabaret theater has grown to become the most influential and prolific comedy empire in the world, developing an entirely unique way of creating art and fostering generation after generation of superstars.

Co-founded by Spolin’s son, Paul Sills, along with Howard Alk and Bernie Sahlins, The Second  City  was  experimental  and  unconventional  in  its  approach  to  both  theater  and  comedy.  Almost  immediately,  alumni  of  The  Second  City,  including  Alan  Arkin,  Joan Rivers, Fred Willard, Gilda Radner, Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi, launched the theater into the international spotlight.

In 1976, Second City launched “SCTV,” which has been hailed as one of the greatest sketch  comedy  series  of  all  time.  The  two-time  Emmy  winner  featured  an  all-star  cast made up of Martin Short, Andrea Martin, Catherine O’Hara, John Candy, Eugene Levy, Dave Thomas, Joe Flaherty, and Rick Moranis.

Today, The Second City is home to a world-class entertainment company, continuing to   produce   premier   talent   in   all   three   of   its   locations–Chicago,   Toronto,   and   Hollywood–and entertaining more than one million audience members a year. From Steve Carell to Keegan-Michael Key, Stephen Colbert to Tina Fey, Chris Farley to Mike Myers, Second City’s imprint is all over film, television, and beyond.
