Almost non-stop laughs! I wish they had made more fun of the 1%, though. My friend and I decided that when they worked up the skits that gay rights must have been dominating the news. . . .Great energy and quick changes, improv with audience...continued

Great time. Love the beautiful venue up on the third floor! Thought that the actors were all so creative and really enjoyed the extra improv show they did for us in addition to the very humorous and politically charged show we had just...continued

We had a reaaly fun time. The only thing that was not fun was trying to find the right place to wait in line. There are 2or3 comedy venues so expect a little confusion if you show up early. Pipers alley is very nice,has places to eat and snack.You...continued

I loved the structure of the short skits. The topics discussed are relatively heavy but through comedy they were able to produce something very entertaining and enlightening. I would highly recommend the show to my friends and family.

Excellent show - very clever humor and kept up to date with what is going on now with the election. Only 1 part of the show with the prisoner that seemed more like a play, slow, not funny - I was anxious for them to get back to the comedy! Great...continued

if you are aware of politics and antics in the US- you are sure to have a good time and laugh topics that are not always laughable.

If you like 2nd City Satire this should be right up your alley. Set to address what's wrong with America & American politics leaving no stone unturned.

One nation under 1% was a hilarious and unique take on the upcoming election and the issues surrounding it. The venue is very nice and the comedians were extremely talented - they even performed a third act of new skits and played an improv game...continued

Based on the title, we were expecting more material about the current Presidential election. Some skits were very funny, but others were less so, especially the one about Chicago Bears players who had passed away due to concussions they received...continued

I loves me some Second City sketch and improv but I've gotta say that this wasn't the funnier of the Second City's shows I've seen. It was probably the least amusing of the 10 times I've been. Don't get me wrong, you'll still laugh but I'd say if...continued

Good sketches. It could have related to the election a bit more.

mix of sketch and improv, relatively topical, not for those offended by foul language, while not prevalent, it is adult humor

The show was great, what we could hear of it. Sit up front or more to the left side of the theater as the action seems more directed to that side. Maybe they put all the groupon people on the right side....

Really fun - great cast! Some great skits, some not so great (the 11 year-old's edited video presentation to "pitch" his vacation idea done on iMovie was great, so was the Jesus in congress).

I love second city shows but this one was bad. Cast was not funny and some of the jokes were in poor taste.

The comedy was good; the performers tried to be inoffensive-they could have been, which might have been better- the adlibs were great.
