While the OED definition of this word may be something like pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others, the Chicago version of this word translates into a somewhat unrestrained comedy ensemble. Visitors to the site can peruse the archives of their radio show (which airs on Chicago Public Radio) or view a number of video clips of the troupe in action. Good clean (well, at least sometimes clean) fun for all, and many a Second-City reference here.
