UP Comedy Club
About UP Comedy Club
The Second City opened its doors on a cold December night in 1959 and its Mainstage quickly became a hotbed for cutting edge satire and comedy. With the addition of the e.t.c. theatre in 1982, Second City's reputation was cemented as the industry leader in improv and sketch comedy.
Opened in January of 2012, UP Comedy Club continues The Second City's 55-year tradition of providing world-wide audiences with Chicago's best comedy. UP Comedy Club is dedicated to producing and presenting a diverse array of comedic performers and formats which include stand-up, sketch, improv, podcasts and other entertainment that is smart, funny and provocative.
The cabaret-style club boasts state of the art audiovisual capabilities in an intimate room with seating for 285 people with a full service kitchen and bar with no drink minimum.
