Second City in Lincoln Park is a renowned Chicago comedy club that has been dubbed both the "ivy league of comedy" and a "comedy empire"- and it certainly lives up to its epithets. For over 50 years, Second City has been performing both sketch comedy and improvisation skits for locals and out-of-towners alike. Every night, the club's witty, daring and of course hilarious troupe wows the crowd with their cleverly scripted-or not scripted- songs and short and long scenes. Second City offers a modest menu of various appetizers and desserts, along with a full bar. If you wish to eat a full meal before or after the show, a list of restaurants within walking distance of the club may be found on Second City's website, as Second City has collaborated to create sensibly priced dinner and show packages for its patrons. It is advisable to arrive at least an hour early to the show to snag a front or second row seat, as the club fills up fast.
