The Second City began its life as The Second City Theatre, a comedy club which opened in 1959. The theater pioneered the style of comedy we now know as improv, where scenes and stories are made up on the spot. The theatre’s style became so popular that the theatre assembled touring companies in the 1960s, and by the mid-1970s some of the group’s alumni became the most popular comedians in the world.

Some of the group’s former and current members include John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Mike Myers, John Candy, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Chris Farley, Tim Meadows, Stephen Colbert, and Tina Fey – just to name a few. In many ways, The Second City has helped define American comedy for over five decades.
