Performance Options

The Second City’s Improv All-Stars

The Second City is the stuff of comedy legend—its stages have fostered the talent of numerous stars, including Chris Farley, Tina Fey, and Steve Carell. And its tradition of off-the-cuff performances continues with The Second City’s Improv All-Stars. A cast of consummate improvisors performs hilarious sketches on the spot, using only audience suggestions and the wit-generators in their minds. Directed by long-time Second City collaborator and founder of The Annoyance Mick Napier, and underscored by live piano music, the actors create what the Chicago Tribune calls “a slick and entertaining show.”

The Second City’s Deep Cuts

The Second City’s backlog of past comedy sketches is miles deep, and fortunately for audiences and joke librarians, the art form isn’t quite as ephemeral as it may seem. Every so often, the company reaches into the vaults to pull out favorite sketches, reassemble them into interesting new juxtapositions, and give them another chance in the limelight. For this archival show, the director and cast have pulled together scenes that wax witty on interacting—and not interacting—in the Internet age. As nations battle and neighbors forget each others’ names, citizens snap selfies, compile top-10 lists, and Google their exes incessantly.

UP Comedy Club

The latest artistic addition to the Piper’s Alley building at North and Wells, UP Comedy Club hosts a comedic medley of performances in its cabaret setting. Guests can catch an improv show starring actors from The Second City’s Mainstage revue, or guffaw at headlining standups including Brian Posehn, Godfrey, and the Sklar Brothers. But no matter what the show, a full menu ensures grumbling bellies don’t interrupt the evening.
