Save the Date folks!!! Letters to Santa is Tues, Dec 5th!!!


For a decade The Second City has enlisted Chicago's best improvisers and their musical counterparts in offering twenty-four consecutive hours of the best improvised live art you will see in the city. This unique event raises money and gives hope to disenfranchised Chicago families on Christmas day. This year's improvisation will be spear headed by TJ Jagadowski, Tim Baltz and Brendan Jennings. Improvisational games, scenes and songs inspired by sleep deprivation will accompany performances by musical acts such as The Mountain Goats, Bonnie Prince Billy, Robbie Fulks, The Danielson Famile, Nina Nastasia, Steve Albini and The Blisters. More performers will be added and set times will be available soon. Check The Second City site for the updated details.

You can donate to the cause, bid on a concert, buy raffle tickets.

Comedy and goodwill. Happy Thanksgiving!!!
