A teen actor said his dream is to be on Saturday Night Live (SNL) and asked how he can achieve that dream. I actually have a good answer for that one. Second City is the place to train.
"The Second City is the leading brand in improv-based sketch comedy. With theatres in Chicago and Toronto, Training Centers in those cites as well as Hollywood, 11 full time touring ensembles, thriving corporate communications and theatricals divisions as well as television and film operations, The Second City has been called "A Comedy Empire" by the New York Times."
Here are some SNL actors who got their start at Second City:
John and James Belushi
SNL your dream? Second City is a good place to start.
