I love history. I believe by learning (and remembering) from the past, we can have a better present and future. So, lately I've been searching out early videos of improv shows. From now on, when I come across them (or you send them to me), I'm going to post them on here. The following video starts off with Avery Schreiber and Del Close performing a short sketch before going into a short history of Second City. I was particularly intrigued by the improvisers working on a suggested scenario backstage before performing it, something I'd never experience or knew about before now.
By the way, have you purchased your tickets to the Second City Does Dallas?
