The Second City Toronto turns 50 this year

I didn't realize that The Second City turns 50 this year. No surprise that I found out while watching my favorite TV arts/culture magazine show, CBS Sunday Morning. They had a great piece by The Second City alum Nancy Giles.

Toronto alumni include Dan Aykroyd, Gilda Radner, John Candy, Dave Thomas, Martin Short, Mike Myers, Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara.

I didn't have time to take in a performance at The Second City Toronto while on my cross-Canada train adventure, but the Shut Up and Show Us Your Tweets! show sounds hilarious.
