COMEDY | The Second City


The Second City has been an American comedy institution for nearly 60 years, and no improv group has churned out more household names — the likes of Bill Murray, John Belushi, Jane Lynch, Tina Fey, Bob Odenkirk, Amy Poehler, Keegan-Michael Key, Tina Fey, and Stephen Colbert all emerged from the Chicago-based troupe. The current group is in the midst of touring its show, "The Best of the Second City," and lands in Rochester on Thursday. The performance will showcase popular songs and sketches from throughout its storied past while featuring the fresh, witty improv upon which The Second City has staked its reputation. Seeing this show may be the best way to get an early look at comedy's future stars.

Thursday, February 22, at Nazareth College Arts Center's Callahan Theater, 4245 East Avenue. 7:30 p.m. $25-$35. 389-2170.;
