The Second City’s Laugh Out Loud tour takes unbridled comic pleasure in the foibles
of our politicians, celebrities and even our significant others. No institution escapes
the satiric eye of The Second City – from the blowhards of the Beltway to the
Hollywood elite. Ripped from the stages of Second City’s legendary theatres in
Chicago and Toronto, The Second City’s Fair & Unbalanced is a hilarious ride
through present day America.

The Second City celebrates 50 years of cutting edge satiric revues and continues to
deliver the leading voices in comedy while touring the globe. With scripted and
improvisational elements, audiences always enjoy being part of the show and playing
along with the next generation of comic legends. Their alumni list reads like a who’s
who of American comedy, as it includes: Mike Nichols, Elaine May, Alan Arkin,
Joan Rivers, Robert Klein, Peter Boyle, Harold Ramis, John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd,
Bill Murray, Gilda Radner, George Wendt, Martin Short, John Candy, Bonnie Hunt,
Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Horatio Sanz, Ryan Stiles, Jack McBrayer, Tim Meadows,
Chris Farley, Mike Myers, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Tina Fey and countless

Laugh Out Loud is sure to deliver a funny perspective on the troubles of the
everyday world. Not only will an evening with The Second City provide audiences
with the chance to see comedy stars in the making, but they will also have the
opportunity to see absolutely hilarious satire and cutting-edge improvisation. No
topic or subject matter is off limits for The Second City. If your parents asked you
not to speak about it at the dinner table, chances are it will be made fun of in an
evening with The Second City.
