The Second City
Toronto, ON M5V 1H2
Few cultural institutions in Toronto have the staying power of Second City, whose comedy revues and improvisational events are now held next door to Wayne Gretzky’s restaurant.
The troupe’s legacy dates back to Chicago in 1959, with its Toronto outpost opening at the Old Firehall theatre in 1973. The list of Second City alumni remains a staggering cross-section of North American comedic legends, including cast members of Saturday Night Live, the creators of the Broadway show The Drowsy Chaperone and those responsible for the offshoot television series SCTV from the mid-1970s through mid-1980s.
The next generation of talent can always be glimpsed on the Second City stage, whose main production includes satirical skits inspired by current events and relationship foibles, along with biting parodies of popular music and media.
