About Chicago City Limits
Chicago City Limits is New York's longest running, award-winning comedy revue. For over 35 years, Chicago City Limits' witty, satiric, and brilliantly inventive improv has delighted audiences in NYC, across the United States, and even around the world.
Since it's founding in 1977, Chicago City Limits' mission has been
to celebrate its unique mix of audience-inspired improv and social/political comedy through performances and training.
In 1979, we relocated from Chicago to NYC, performing regularly at Catch a Rising Star, the Improv, the Duplex, and other notable clubs. We established our own theater in the summer of 1980 and began a continuous run that has now reached over 10,000 performances!
