Five TV Comedy Sketches That Changed My Life

Five TV Comedy Sketches That Changed My Life

In my early years I was a huge sketch comedy fan. I even planned, at one time, to run off to Chicago and join Second City after I graduated from High School. I didn’t, obviously, and I am a lesser person because of it.

In remembrance of that lost dream and the importance that filmed sketch comedy had on me as younger person, here are Five TV Comedy Sketches That Changed My Life.
