The Second City: Improv All-Stars

Sunday, March 5, 2017 at 7:30pm, Chicago’s legendary comedy theater returns to the Newmark Theatre with “The Second City: Improv All-Stars,” an irresistible hour of improvised comedy. The masters of the form will astound you with their talent, skill and wit-- all without the aid of scripts or sets.

Fresh, fast and always spectacularly funny, The Second City is celebrating 55 years of producing cutting-edge satirical revues and has launched the careers of legends like Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray and more.

“Second City does the comedy of shared experience more quirkily and savvier than most.” – Chicago Tribune

“A temple of Satire...” – Time magazine

“The entire recent tradition of American satire can be summed up in three words: The Second City.” – New York Times

“The troupe that gave us SCTV and inspired Saturday Night Live and Whose Line is it Anyway?!” – Chicago Tribune
