Five Hundy by Midnight has learned The Second City Las Vegas is closing its doors on Aug. 1. The Las Vegas branch of the legendary improvisational comedy theater has occupied the small showroom at Flamingo since 2001. Considering the revolving door of mid-priced shows on The Strip in that time, a seven-year run is pretty impressive. No word yet regarding what Flamingo has planned for the showroom nor whether The Second City is seeking a new Las Vegas home. An official announcement about the closing is expected later this week.
