Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A really fun night! It was really easy to get tickets and buy food and drink once there! The people performing were really funny and engaging! I would definitely recommend going here on your trip.

We went to the improv brunch. It was only about an hour long, but the performers were very good and they took suggestions and volunteers from the audience. We shared a breakfast wrap, which was tasty and the mimosas were good as well.

Way too woke for me. We went to see a comedy show not to be subjected to their woke values. Also 911 is not a Muslim holiday equivalent to Christmas. NOT FUNNY!

Awesome show, it was hilarious, fast paced, and just the right touch of audience participation. The cast was dynamic, real, and funny! It was our first time at Second City and the new theatre was great!

All the staff were great, from our arrival, to the lobby bar, to the service during the show itself.

I highly recommend the kiwi, delicious!

The show was an absolute blast! We went for our anniversary with our teens, and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the performance! Unfortunately, food service did not go well. The food was prepared incorrectly three times, and we finally gave up getting it right. Every time they brought the wrong thing I missed part of the show while trying to explain what was wrong.

Haven't been to a Second City show in ages. Upon arriving support staff did a great job directing us to coat check, the bar, restrooms, and ticket check. We opted to get our seats and have table service. It's only kind of table service: you order using a QR code with your phone and a server then brings your order. Our seats were pretty tight where 5 people would have needed to get up and move into the main aisle if I needed to leave my seat. The comedy show was top notch.

Great way to spend your night. We attended their Friday night show and we had a good time. The place was almost fully booked. You can order food and drinks right from your seat during the show which was very convenient. The show is not appropriate for kids as the humor and jokes are adult oriented. The cast was funny and clever. Highly recommend!

Always have a good time. We saw "Mission Possible". There were a few skits that I think about and still giggle. Most of them are better than the skits you see on Saturday Night Live.

Loved the Second City's 83rd review so much that I have already seen it twice, and I wouldn't mind seeing it again! The humour and quality of improv and writing was top notch - I loved how they blended comedy with relevant, timely topics such as climate change, problematic historical figures and our telling of history, and unbearably long hold times when you call Rogers ;) A great show for the open-minded!
