Submitted to Explore – John Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Mike Myers, Tina Fey… What do all of these people have in common? Besides being synonymous with Saturday Night Live, they all got their start at the Second City.

The theater is internationally known for its ever-increasing roster of comedy superstars, producing household names like Bill Murray, John Candy, Gilda Radner, Stephen Colbert, and Steve Carell.
