Welcome to The Second City Archives, in which we post an exclusive clip each week of some of comedy’s biggest superstars performing early in their careers on the legendary Chicago stage. Second City has generously given us a glimpse into their extensive archive of live performances, and over the coming weeks we’ll be sharing some rare and retro comedy never before seen on the web.
This week’s clip comes from Second City’s famous 1995 revue Piñata Full of Bees from ensemble performers Adam McKay, Scott Adsit, Rachel Dratch, Scott Allman, Jenna Jolovitz, and Jon Glaser. In the above sketch “Wheelchairs,” Glaser and Adsit play two friends in a wheelchair basketball league – but one of them has a shameful secret. Will their friendship recover from such a dramatic falling out? Check out another sketch from Piñata with Adsit and McKay here.
