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.
As a tribute to the confusing mess that is April Fools’ Day, this week’s unearthed Second City clip comes from the 1987 television pilot 110 Lombard starring Ryan Stiles, Bob Bainborough, and Mike Myers and featuring Dana Andersen, Bonnie Hunt, Linda Kash, Richard Kind, Jane Morris, Bruce Pirrie, Audrey Webb, and Mark Wilson. In the above excerpt, Myers visits his wealthy potential father-in-law to ask for his blessing, but the visit quickly escalates into a ridiculous prank competition. Check out the full pilot here.
