It is typical Second City Improv. As much as I want to love Improv, it's similar to watching Saturday Night Live (meaning sometimes they hit it out of the park and you get a hearty laugh--and sometimes it falls flat). The reality is, Improve is...continued

It was a fun show! I was a bit nervous when we were seated in the second row because I didn't want to be ridiculed, but with the improv, they aren't using the audience to make jokes. They are taking suggestions from the audience on themes and...continued

Despite the good reviews and my optimism...I didn't really think the show was all that funny. I think I'm going to stick with stand up comedy or the scripted versions instead. Hope you go on a better night.

Improv depends largely on the audience, and a Sunday night probably isn't the best night for people's creative juices. That said, there were plenty of zingers and laughs.
The seating at UP is a little odd. We were placed near the front, but the...continued

My companion and I enjoyed the comedy improvisation show. We have gone to the main Second City Improve show, but this time we took a chance and were pleasantly surprised. It's a great evening of entertainment and laughter and a discount ticket...continued

My husband and his nephew used the tickets and had a great time. They said the improv was amazing. The timing of the show was great. One hour was perfect.

Very funny! Went with a friend who was visiting from out of town. Good seats, very. Casual, loved the fact that it was a very clean language.

After a 4-day weekend spent caring for our two "under 3 years" grandchildren, we attended with friends "All-Star Improv Review" at Second City. What a great decision on our part! An hour and a half reprieve from the cold realities of a Chicago...continued

Gets repetitive...wish they had even just a little rehearsed material, and extended the show. The improv is fun, but it takes a lot of imagination to keep it fresh for an entire hour. Some of the performers were one-trick ponies. Still, decent...continued

Improv is always a blast! You can usually expect a little raunchiness or gross humor, and these people know how to bring the laughs. The show was about 2 hours long and well worth the Goldstar rate. The house drinks are also fun and tasty. ...continued

Improvised short form here is solid comedy. So it depends a little bit on the cast and the day. The people on stage have fun and so the audience too. The player go for the easy laugh.

it was alright. i was prepared to laugh a lot more than i did, but still there were a couple of amusing skits. Given the Goldstar discount, i think it was worth it, but i wouldn't have wanted to pay full price to see that show. it is improv...continued

it was really impressive how everything is improvised but in my opinion not always that funny. But some people almost died because of laughing, so I think I just have another sense of humour.
Food and drinks are expensive and not that good.

My date and I liked everything except the swear words, which always seemed out of place and detracted from the flow of laughter in our heads.

The skits were crisp comedy with a lot of audience interaction and they quickly developed themes within...continued
