The Second City Detroit was a comedy theatre and training center located in the Detroit suburb Novi, Michigan. It was the Second City's third mainstage theatre in North America following the Second City Chicago and Toronto.[1] Originally established in September 1993 in downtown Detroit, Michigan,[1]the theatre relocated to a strip mall in Novi in 2005, where it remained until it was disbanded in 2009. The original downtown Detroit theater, within the Hockeytown Cafe complex, is now named the City Theater (Detroit), and the Novi location is now named the Andiamo Novi Theatre.
