Take advantage of discount adult comedy classes at The Second City, the largest school of improvisation and sketch comedy in the world.
A lot of our contributors discovered PIC through Second City, either through a satire class or sketch group, so it only felt natural that we return the favor by letting you know about the wide range of opportunities they offer to grow as a writer and performer. You'll also save some money, and help support PIC in the process.
The Second City Training Center teaches the skills which underlie the work on their resident performance stages. The classes, including favorites like Writing 1 and Improv 1, are taught by professionals working in their fields, and are dedicated to helping students develop their artistic voice, both individually and within an ensemble, and to provide the tools and techniques needed to express that voice.

PIC Writer Testimonials
Comedy classes in stand-up, sketch, and improv can dramatically help your writing. PIC's managing editor James Folta took improv classes and still performs regularly. Improv has improved his writing—making him quicker and looser with first drafts—and continues to help him generate new ideas and premises.
Second City comedy classes have also helped tons of PIC writers with their work! Here's how they describe their experiences…
