I've always loved Second City.
Their current show Barack To The Future sounds good.

The Canadian leg of Second City has spawned so many great comedians who leave Canada because...well, we're haters.

...yeah, I said it.

Second City gave these people their start:

Dan Ackroyd, John Candy, Robin Duke, Jayne Eastwood (Ok, she stayed in Canada to play those really Canadian roles, eh?), Joe Flaherty, Eugene Levy, Andrea Martin (ok...whatever, we adopted her....she's a citizen(I think), Rick Moranis, Mike Myers (Before that Guru movie..he used to be funny), Catherine O'Hara, Ivan Reitman, Martin Short, David Steinberg, Dave Thomas.

Second City is my opportunity to see a possible future American star.

Sort of.
