Second City announced Tuesday the comedy outfit will open “the world’s first film school dedicated to comedy” and name the school for the late Second City alum Harold Ramis. The school is expected to open in the fall. Ramis, who died in 2014, wrote Caddyshack, Groundhog Day and National Lampoon’s Vacation and appeared as an actor in Ghostbusters and Stripes. The Chicago native got his start in comedy at Second City, and worked there with Bill Murray, John Belushi and Gilda Radner.
He lived on the North Shore, in Glencoe, until his death.
