Second City is “UP” to More Funny Business

The Second City is serious about their comedy. They’re so serious they’re adding another comedy club to their roster at Piper’s Alley. They’ve got  Mainstage, e.t.c. Theatre, Donny’s Skybox, the de Maat Studio Theatre, and soon they’ll add UP Comedy Club to the mix. This venue within a venue will have a bigger focus on standup comedy, but will also have shows that capitalize on Second City’s improv expertise.

The theater will open on November 23 with performances by Dov Davidoff, followed by The Second City’s Improv Extravaganza Explosion and The Second City’s History of Chicago. The latter is a piece written in cahoots with the Chicago History Museum and makes fun of all things Chicago. No wonder they need more space…
