The comedy powerhouse, Second City, that churned out Dan Akroyd, Martin Short, Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, John Candy, Steve Carell, Gilda Radner......is still going strong after 52 years. But many of us remember the SCTV years the most.....

Did you know??
Second City Improv lives on through theaters, touring troupes and training centers, featuring but not limited to, Adult improv camp, Kids improv classes, Weekend Intensives - from beginners to advanced, Comedy writing and much more......Chicago, Hollywood and Toronto.
Several years ago there was also a Second City Improv in Las Vegas. They did a regular show at the Flamingo Hilton and had a local school where I took two levels of ensemble improv. Had a great time, learned a lot, stretched my comfort zone and I have since planned to sign up for one of their weekend intensives in Hollywood....just for a hilarious refresher.
