I grew up in Chicago and was a huge fan of 'The Second City', so when I moved to L.A., I was looking for anything that resembled that... then I started 'The Groundlings', so I went to a show and it was very much like 'Second City'.

For 30 years I've been schooled in everything from government, and economics, to medicine and international relations. But don't be impressed.
