The Second City Hits Home: 2021 Edition

Doing what they do best, The Second City finds laughs in everything from Saint Paul’s history, events, and hot button issues to headlines from the Pioneer Press and the Star Tribune, and mixes these with a generous portion of classic Chicago-style sketch and improv created by some of Second City’s most lauded alumni, including Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray, and more. The Second City celebrates 55 years of cutting edge satirical revues and continues to deliver the leading voices in comedy while touring the globe.

Come join the next generation of comedy superstars as they mash up Second City’s greatest hits and brand-new material along with their signature improvisation in this hilarious show.
