Chicago’s legendary sketch and improv comedy theater Second City brings “The Second City Hits Home,” a new show featuring hilarious sketches, songs, and improvisation about Kansas City, as well as material from the famed Second City archives. This is a must-see night of comedy featuring some of Chicago’s brightest comedy stars. 

Doing what they do best, Second City finds laughs in everything from Kansas City’s history, events and hot button issues to headlines from Kansas City’s news outlets and mixes these with a generous portion of classic Chicago-style sketch and improv created by some of Second City’s most lauded alumni, including Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Gilda Radner, Bill Murray and more. 

The Second City celebrates 55 years of cutting-edge satirical revues and continues to deliver the leading voices in comedy while touring the globe. 

VIP tickets include premium seating and one free cocktail or beverage of your choice.


Much like Saturday Night Live and Late-Night television, The Second City Hits Home pokes fun at current events—and even tailors its content to the city its currently playing. Keep in mind that the nature of the performance includes improv comedywhich means show’s content and dialogue is made up, on the spot, with the audience. Each night the content is different and unpredictable, so we recommend this show for ages 12+.  

Guests may park for FREE in the paved Zebra lot on Starlight’s east side. Weather permitting, courtesy shuttles will run from the parking lot to Gate 8 before and after the show. ADA parking is available along the ticket office curb, if needed.
