Know what NYC’s longest-running show is? You might be surprised to hear that it’s Chicago City Limits . CCL is a family-friendly Improv comedy act at the Broadway Comedy Club on West 53rd Street, in the heart of the Theater District.
Currently performing “Chicago City Limits on Ice,” its 38th revue since relocating to NYC from Chicago in 1980, CCL is a critic and fan favorite.
The show is a mix of sketch comedy and “audience-inspired improvisation” – think “Whose Line is it Anyway?” making every show unique, fun, and current. You’ll get to interact with the comedians, but, not to worry, the interaction is deliberately all positive and in good fun!
Popular with New Yorkers and tourists alike, we think one Yelp! reviewer said it best: “INCREDIBLE show! The cast was one of the best I have seen performing the difficult art form of Improv. These shows are not only hilarious but they are great for all ages and are reasonably priced for a show in NYC! The theater has a great energy and feel to it”
Shows are every night of the week – when “Chicago City Limits on Ice” isn’t on, “Best of Broadway Standup” is running. Most shows start around 8 or 9, and admission is $15 with a 2-drink minimum. (Hey, they know how to keep people laughing!)
