The Chicago History Museum may not be the first place you think of when you think “comedy,” but maybe that’s what’s so funny about the fact that they’re hosting a series of events featuring some of the Second City’s most famous comedians. On the November 13, it’s hosting “Tuesday Night Live,” in which “SNL” and Second City alums Tim Meadows and Rachel Dratch (who’s been yukking it up in multiple parts on Tina Fey’s funnier-than-it-should-be “30 Rock”) will come back to town to talk about Chicago’s own comedy history (and their parts in it) and perform live sketch and improv with other members of the Second City ensemble. Sure, tour guides have their charms, but odds are this could be the funniest thing you’ll ever see inside a museum. (Mike Schramm)
