I took a friend who used to live in Chicago but relocated many years ago. We both enjoyed the performance and laughed and laughed. Very talented group and the performance kept moving!
A good choice for an uplifting night out!
Thanks a lot!

I was expecting a lot more. Pretty disappointed. But it was a night out.

It was just...OK. I expected a little more from Second City. A couple of the performers were below-par which brought down the level of quality considerably. Some jokes worked, others were forced, and overall a bit disappointing. If you're...continued

Some skits were really funny, others a little awkward, and others I'm not really sure why they were included at all. But overall, a fun experience, I would recommend it to others. If you are going though, get there early, seating is first come...continued

Great seats, but I didn't love the show. It was amusing, but I've seen much better from Second City/Up.

Great show - especially loved the neighborhood, tour bus and art museum sketches.

The improv at the end was a bit weaker than expected, but then again the audience suggestions being tossed out were bad.

The venue was freezing - the AC was...continued

I have always loved all the shows I have seen at Second City but unfortunately this was my least favorite. All of the actors were very talented but unfortunately a lot of the material wasn't that funny. :(

It was a good show. Not jaw-dropping or incredible, but I did get a few laughs out of it and it was more culturally satisfying than spending the evening with my Netflix account. I took a friend and they split their sides laughing, so I suppose it...continued

My family took me here for Mother's Day, and it was a super fun thing to do with my adult children.

Not nearly as funny as other Up Comedy Club performances I've seen. The sound system was seriously deficient, at least on the right side near the aisle.

Not sure if it was the time of day (4:00 show) or the sparse audience, but the performance never gained much momentum.

Our group of 4 thoroughly enjoyed the cast's scripted & impromptu segments. They were creative & fun to watch. Very talented cast.

Spoof on all Chicago's ins and outs that are only known by locals. Skits and jokes were on classic Chicago issues, such as the Cubs never having a winning season, to more current issues such as the mass of school closures. I found myself laughing...continued

The show deserves a 5-star rating. I have given it a 4, because the "escorted seating" took us to the far bottom right corner of the theater. We were lucky that being a Sunday evening, the place wasn't full and we were able to move a couple of...continued

The show was very funny. LMAO. Small crowd but enough to get good reactions to the jokes.
