Official Opinions: Chicago Comedy

Since 1959, The Second City has been entertaining Chicagoans and making them laugh at those absurd moments in life, love, and politics. As a sketch-comedy and improv venue, they have had many actors who have made it to the big time, securing their spot in the hearts of comedy lovers everywhere through active roles on SNL and many movies. Chicago’s training center has had many familiar faces pass through their classes, including Steve Carell, Chris Farley, Stephen Colbert, and Tina Fey.

Today, they have many shows each day of the week. Their bigger shows go for around $30, but if you are looking for something fun to do for around $10 they have shows on the smaller stages that are just as entertaining and provide a very intimate environment. One of the more unique shows out there this winter is entitled We Are Small Towns. This is playing at 10:30 every Thursday night through February 2011. The show is a sketch comedy written by the actors, and tells true tales from their past experiences of life’s many absurdities that I am sure we all can relate to.

I have found in the past, that shows like this give a great alternative to just heading to the movie theater, are always good for a laugh, and are a good way to do something different from the usual routine. The unique intimate stages and pictures of past students hanging on the walls really gives a feeling of Chicago history and reminds everyone what makes Chicago so great.
