The legendary singer Paul Simon showed up unannounced Thursday at the Second City mainstage in Chicago and then, as is traditional for visiting celebrities, took to the stage during the post-show improv set.

Simon told funny stories and then, remarkably, sang "Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard" and offered up an acoustic version of "The Sound of Silence."
