Not only a beloved Chicago showcase, Second City is now treasured by the world, as well. Many a legendary comedy career began here; perhaps you will catch tomorrow's star in tonight's revue. This is the birthplace of sketch comedy, the type of humor that spawned such shows as Saturday Night Live and The Kids in the Hall. In fact, many favorite SNL comedians got their start here. John Belushi, Bill Murray, Jerry Stiller and Elaine May are just a handful of those who went on to national fame. Be sure to check out all the photos on the wall while you wait to be seated - cabaret style, of course. The drinks are good, the price is right, the comedy and satire is unbeatable. This is an unforgettable end to an evening out in Old Town.
