I can’t believe I have lived in Chicago my entire life and haven’t visit until day. What a perfect way to spend an afternoon at brunch.

Everyone is FUNNY and they encourage audience participation. Food & Drinks were delicious.

Had a great time! Show was wonderful. Performers were great. Laughed out loud. Interactions with crowd were perfect. Huge compliment to the server/customer service staff. The service was excellent, and the food was very good! Prices not unreasonable and everyone was very welcoming and attentive. If driving, reserve a spot and park in the garage in the same building. Works out perfectly!! A wonderful thing to do during your visit to Chicago!!!

Just saw Don't Quit your Daydream at Second City. Easily the best improv show I've seen (although most of skits were pretty scripted.) Table service was a plus - the draft IPAs are excellent. Don't bother with "premium" tickets because the hall is pretty small. Also I wouldn't take high school age kids here because you will all be embarrassed by the material eg, very heavy on the oral sex jokes.

Being a huge SNL fan I have always wanted to check out Second City to see where some of the most amazing comedic talent got their start. I have to say the show exceeded all expectations. I saw the show Don't Give Up Your Daydream on the main stage. To start the waitstaff, specifically, Tristan who was taking care of my section was very attentive and delivered a drink to my table when my previous one was empty. The show was constant laughs, the only other show that made me laugh more consistently was when I saw The Book of Mormon. The content was edgy, smart, and progressive, not too raunchy. The lighting cues and keyboard accompanist were spot-on and added a lot to the show. There were two acts to start, a second intermission, and then they ended with straight-up improv. I was in disbelief that people left before the third act. In my opinion, the third act was the funniest part of the show. The talented cast blew me away with their ability to keep the laughs going with creative content all made up on the spot. Stick around, you won't be disappointed!

I have never been a improv fan, more of a stand up comedy fan so I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed this. The show was hilarious. Mixture of preplanned skits and stuff made up on the spot. Also good mixture of quick bits and more drawn out pieces. Service was quick and attentive. Comfortable seats too. Enjoyed the intermissions. Highly recommend.

After decades of admiring the Second City grads on SNL and the improv circuit I finally made it to the source. Saw "Don’t Quit Your Daydream" with my adult kids. I do not understand many of the reviews on here as it was just plain hilarious. Just what I expected. Are you reviewing the right show (there are at least 4) ? Nothing bombed. Always irreverent, bawdy, sometimes outright X rated fun poking. A little political, but not so much compared to say the Capitol Steps. Well written sketches and skits but lots of ball busting improv that involved the actors tweaking each other as well as the audience. They are remodeling the main theater so the main show is temporarily in the 3rd floor UP Comedy Club with theater seating and small tables. Great service all throughout the show; decent food, good beer and wine selection and price, except they REALLY like their hard booze cocktails if the price they charge is any indication. All the actors were good but a couple were downright hilarious. Go yourself so you can figure out who is who.

Went to see "Oh, the places you'll glow" at the e.t.c. theater. The show starts out a little slow, until the second half, then, they come out strong and kill it. It's a funny cast and I'm sure they'll make adjustments to round out the show.
Honestly, I'd lose some of the light sabre stuff and maybe fill in with a couple "blackouts"?
I would recommend this show over the main stage's "Don't give up your day dream" which we saw the night after.

Second City is perhaps America's most famous comedy institution. Many famous names graduated from here...Bill Murray, Tina Fey, Steve Carrell, Steven Colbert, John Belushi, John Candy, Martin Short, Amy Poehler, Dan Aykroyd, and many more! Every day of the week, including Mondays, you can go see a comedy show whether its improv, stand up, or sketch comedy. There's also a variety of shows for every budget, $10-100+, which can be cheaper than a movie! My friends and I saw the "Chill AF Presents..." stand up comedy show for $25, which consisted a variety of fun comedians. The laughs were nearly endless for the hour long show. Definitely a must do in while in Chicago!

I’ve been to Second City several times over the years, and this was the only disappointing experience I’ve had, but find it worrying.

We saw The Best of Second City: Chicago Style and it was anything but the best… certainly some overload of humor at the expense of the hapless Bears, but most of the humor was weak. The (planned) skits that started the show were terrible for the first 10 minutes, and transitioned to a mediocre mix of improv and overextended jokes (example: three sequential jokes about forgetting a baby in various spots were funny in round 1 and tired by round 3).

There was also a 15-20 minute “live auction” where the audience kept outbidding each other to have the right to define the scope of a round of improv. It escalated to a $40 bid with no provided context beyond what seemed to be a money grab. It wasn’t terribly funny, and if the bidders were plants, it wasn’t evident. It needed a better setup.

The sound wasn’t great too. It was hard to hear/understand at times.

Not sure if Second City now finds themselves tired and overextended given their expansion and multiple shows nationally. But we were genuinely looking forward to seeing the show, and it was very disappointing at a $51 per head cost.

This theatre has a certain amount of notoriety around it, particularly given the number of high-profile comedians who got their start here, so we weren't sure what to expect when we came here. Thankfully, the performances we saw lived up to the theatre's reputation, with a gamut of fantastic, hilarious performances that contributed to the theatre's fame. The staff were proud of working here, and it showed in the quality of their service. As with comedy in general, there's a certain amount of political incorrectness that makes its way into the material, but that's to be expected. They sell drinks here, although they're a bit on the pricier side.
