The Second City is best known for creating relevant political and social commentary in a variety of mediums and launching some of the world's beloved comics, including Joan Rivers, John Belushi, Bill Murray, Mike Myers, Chris Farley, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Amy Poehler, and Tina Fey. The Outreach & Diversity division is committed to making this art form accessible to schools and universities to grow a diverse community of voices studying and performing improvisation.
