“Don't miss this Chicago Icon”
Reviewed 13 December 2004

So many great comedians came out of the Second City Comedy Troupe that it's worth just going for a comedy history lesson. If you're in Chicago very long, be sure to check out one of Second City's excellent shows of sketch comedy and improv, you won't be dissapointed. It's like Saturday Night Live, only better. Tickets are cheap too, around $13 each I think.
