When was the last time you laughed so hard you thought your heart would explode? Isn't it time you relived that joyous experience? This audio offers more than four hours of improvisational comedy sketches from Chicago's foremost comedy troupe, Second City. Connoisseurs of comedy will appreciate the verbal magic tricks of the "improv" sketches, as well as the many levels of humorous human experience every piece investigates. Running the gamut of topics from catastrophic Christmases to homicidal history professors, from O.J. to the IRS, L.A. Theatre Works offers decades of Second City hilarity in one brilliant package.
Colbert, Dinelo, and Sedaris went on to create the hit show Strangers with Candy for Comedy Central, and Amy's best-selling book, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence is both witty and hilarious. More recently, both Carell and Colbert have enjoyed immense success, beginning with their supporting roles on The Daily Show. Carell's show, The Office, is a hit on NBC, and his movies are box-office boffos. Colbert has spun his Daily Show character off into his own highly successful The Colbert Report.
Hear these budding young comedians in some of their most hilarious work before they became the stars they are today.
