Best of the Second City 

When it comes to cracking audiences up, The Second City is second to none. With alumni that include John Belushi, Tina Fey, Steve Carell, and Stephen Colbert, Chicago's improv troupe has been the place where countless comedians have cut their comic teeth. This week the Second City's touring company pulls into the Touhill Performing Arts Center to stage some of the troupe's greatest bits, culled from more than a half-century of time-tested material. The Best of the Second City is at the Touhill for three nights. Years from now, you'll be able to boast that you saw that next great comic legend "way back when."

8 p.m. Thu. & Fri., 6 & 9 p.m. Sat. (Apr. 23-25). Touhill Performing Arts Center at University of Missouri-St. Louis (1 University Drive at Natural Bridge Road; 314-516-4949 or www.touhill.org). $33 to $35..
April 23-24, 8 p.m.; Sat., April 25, 6 & 9 p.m., 2015
