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.”

Second City’s Game Night

Riffing on classic games shows, The Second City’s Game Night puts a humorous spin on the wackiness that can result under TV’s bright lights. Using audience suggestions, a cast of improvisors constructs new scenarios every night, ensuring that each visit is as fresh as the first. 

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.
