A Good Laugh Never Grows Old

Pretty much every big name in comedy came out of the famed Second City in Chicago. The theater gave some of the most famous names in funny their first big time on stage like Bill Murray, Keegan-Michael Key, Bob Odenkirk, Peter Boyle, Fred Willard and the late Harold Ramis. Of course. they also gave that same opportunity to Jim Belushi and Andy Dick but we're willing to forgive them for that. The theater continues to train talented comedians and help them get their start on a stage before heading off to a career in television and movies. They also run national tours so you don't have to endure living in the wintry hell-scape that is Chicago just so you can enjoy them. The Second City 55th Anniversary Tour will perform at the City Performance Hall (2520 Flora St.) at 8 p.m., Thursday - Saturday and 2 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are available at attpac.org.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sat., Nov. 15, 2 p.m. Starts: Nov. 14. Continues through Nov. 15, 2014
