The Second Stop? Second City!

After a lunch in the Water Tower, we hopped on our friend the 151 and headed to The Second City. Located in the Old Town neighborhood of Chicago, The Second City is celebrating 50 years of comedy. We were excited to be in a place that had churned out actors and comedians like Tina Fey and Steven Colbert.

The show was two acts, with the great improv that makes Second City famous. I was sitting in front of all of the students, but I heard a lot of laughing. The sketches pushed the envelope with topics about racism, gender, politics, and religion. Some wonderful conversations broke out on our way back to our bus stop.
