This fall, as the temperatures drop, the days get shorter, and holiday pressures and head colds come on, The Second City has the fix! Chicago’s legendary sketch and improvisational comedy theater presents “The Cure for The Common Comedy.” See the stars of tomorrow perform all-new material in a revue that will help you laugh your way into the New Year.

The show features social and political satire made famous by Second City stars like Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert and Keegan-Michael Key, as well as brand-new scenes, songs, and improv straight from their sold-out shows in Chicago and Toronto. It’s a must-see evening of comedy that is always original, daring, and hilarious.

The Second City is celebrating nearly six decades of producing cutting-edge satirical revues and launching the careers of generation after generation of comedy’s best and brightest.
