Bill Utterback, Second City's very own Al Hirschfeld, died Monday, February 8, after a long illness. A gifted cartoonist, Utterback created the amusing caricatures of Second City cast members that adorn the comedy theater's lobby bar. In a sense, his "sketch comedy" warmed audience members up for the sketch comedy they were waiting to see. Born in 1931, he also contributed artwork to Playboy and other publications. He is survived by his wife Betty. According to Second City vice president Kelly Leonard, Utterback's last work—still incomplete but "very close to being finished," Leonard says—was a portrait of the cast of the company's current Second City ETC revue Studs Terkel's Not Working.
