"If you need some great laughs with a twist of Dickens and lots of creative improv, this is definitely the show for you!” —

SCROOGE IS BACK, and he’ll do anything for a laugh!

Last season’s zaniest, most irreverent, interactive holiday show is back and more boisterous than ever! The twisted minds of the world famous The Second City are hard at play: bringing all the crazy antics you love, plus new jokes, more naughty audience interaction and louder, heartier laughs!

“The entire recent tradition of American satire can be summed up in three words: The Second City.” —The New York Times

Scrooge, Tiny Tim, three ridiculous ghosts and a cast of The Second City’s funniest alums take the Douglas stage by storm, as wicked satire, daring improv and a host of guest celebs run rampant.

Get in the spirit with this epic celebration of the comic genius of The Second City. Tiny Timtini’s and Scroogedrivers will be flowing in the Lobby Lounge.

Talk about a bonus gift!

A star-studded grab bag of special guests adds comic sparkle and a joyful surprise to each performance. The audience never knows which guest star they’ll see until the guest is revealed onstage.

The guest list will include Casey Affleck, Diedrich Bader, Gregg Binkley, Mindy Cohn, Mike Hagerty, Jane Kaczmarek, Richard Karn, Keegan-Michael Key, Matthew Modine, Rhea Perlman, Paul Provenza, Danny Pudi, Yakov Smirnoff, Mindy Sterling, Verne Troyer, Reginald VelJohnson and Fred Willard.
