WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Jeffrey Sweet (author of Something Wonderful Right Away, an oral history of the Compass Players and Second City) gives a funny talk about how and why Paul Sills and some other young iconoclasts who hung out in Hyde Park (Mike Nichols, Elaine May, Barbara Harris, and Shelley Berman among them) created modern improvisational theatre and change the look of American comedy.
