I'm always amazed as to how good the Second City troupes are. Most of the skits were really funny. One of the skits would have required a slightly older crowd.

Very funny. Talented group and a terrific way to spend an afternoon.

Well done and always a great time.
I think everyone should see Second City and laugh out loud...LOUDLY.

First time at Up, the newest venue at Piper's Alley. The nicest of their three facilities, but part of me misses the historical grunge of the original. Great show with a great cast.
