Praise

“Second City was everything to me. It had a great deal to offer–and still does to anybody who wants to take their stupid seriously.”—Stephen Colbert

“Second City is the best job anybody in the American theater can get. It’s incomparable. If you come through Second City training, I think you can do anything.”—Bill Murray

“I think what I learned at Second City was that it was okay to take risks, to fall flat on my face and get back up and learn about myself.”—Bonnie Hunt

“I met my best friends there. We used the techniques to do good, honest work, and took them with us into later careers.”—Dan Aykroyd

“There would be no Curb Your Enthusiasm if it weren’ t for Second City. Because of Second City, I became a better comedian.”—Jeff Garlin

“A storytelling masterpiece. <strong style=”mso-bidi-font-weight: normal;”>The Second City Unscripted is not just the best book ever about the fabled theater and its players, but among the best books ever to burrow into the DNA of comedy genius. It’s rare to get such an intimate and honest look at great artists. It’s our good fortune that Mike Thomas has made it all so entertaining and impossible to put down.”—Robert Kurson, bestselling author of Shadow Divers and Crashing Through
 

“Thomas corrals his subjects’ testimony in a historical framework paralleling the larger baby boomer narrative, progressing from fringe revolutionaries to institutional stalwarts. Testimony is funny, sentimental and hopeful, making this a winning collection for any fan of comedy’s last half-century.”—Publishers Weekly
