Some of the jokes only a Chicagoan would get, (.......continued

Had a good time. Called in advance and house was very helpful in seating our party front and center. My husband has a hearing loss and that. sometimes causes him to miss a lot, but he was able to hear just fine. Thank you for your consideration.

Saw this show for the second time and still almost peed my pants. The improv is outstanding!!!! They are all quick thinkers, though, I noticed that they changed one of the cast members which was replaced by a not so funny guy. They need to bring...continued

I went alone. I had nachos which were messy but good and a beer. Decent menu good seat. Some funny and some moments felt flat. As it is improvisation could be a result of the audience suggestions which were not that imaginative. Excellent...continued

The show itself was funny and well improvised. This is an excellent group of Second City cast members. However, we ordered a dessert to share two ways for what the menu said was $8.25. The waiter asked if we wanted ice cream with that and we...continued

was quite juvenile and poorly written Even
I could have written better lines. I was em
barassed for them and was glad to leave. A
big disappointment. But the...continued

I've seen this show once before. With the exception of Nicole and one other male cast member, I thought this ensemble was not as good as tin the previous show. After looking at the photo you posted in this email I realized that Nicole was the only...continued

Went with another couple and laughed a lot. I would say it is like Saturday Night Live or any improve event....not everything is a homerun but certainly batted well more than 300. The second half was funnier than the first with a great...continued

The actors were very talented and versatile. And funny! The venue was great! I'd like to say that there is not a bad seat in the house, but they cram in extra chairs and it is very difficult to get out to use the bathroom. Even though we "had...continued
