Great venue and really funny show! I had never been to the Up Comedy Club before but found it to be more intimate and comfortable than the Main Stage or ETC.

I attended the June 2 8 PM performance of "The Best of The Second City," and was very pleased. The cast was great and had wonderful chemestry, and the sketches and games were hilarious and edgy without being raunchy or offensive. I definitely...continued

The show was actually much better than I expected, considering how little I paid for tickets. It was very funny, and I will definitely keep an eye out for cast members in the future.

It was a very fun and funny show. A great mix of one liner skits to longer sketches and improv. Cast and venue were great! Was my first second city show and couldn't have asked for a better one!

We went to Second City for a birthday celebration. We laughed so hard our stomachs hurt, and we were still laughing long after we got home. The act was fresh, fast paced, and creative. There was never a real lull, and we were in awe of how...continued
