Overview

It's also a theater production as much as a comedy act. A 100% improvised musical based on a suggestion from the audience. One hour long. All the lyrics, melodies, harmonies, choreography are made up right on the spot. Live band makes up all the music. The comedy is hysterical, only to be surpassed by the level of talent. I've lived in Chicago for 30 years and it's easily my favorite entertainment option. Language and content can go anywhere since it's all improvised.

We wanted to see a Second City show and decided to roll the dice on this curious concept of an improv musical. We went in excited with a tiny dose of skepticism. Oh boy were we satisfied. The cast was fantastic, each bringing their own...More

We had heard about a fully improvised comedy musical act, but we had to see it to believe it. It was a very cool experience. They start out by asking the audience for the title of the play, then jump right into the first musical...More

Just checked out Baby Wants Candy for the first time since it moved to Second City from the Apollo. I'm not sure what changes ensued besides the venue but I was honestly a little underwhelmed for the first time. The show was still funny, but...More

"Baby Wants Candy" is a circa hour-long musical improv, all of it (plot, subplots, characters, music, lyrics, choreography) improvised off the title of a new musical that audience members shout out. Some of the titles make me wonder "how are they going to do a...More
