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.
Now that the sequel to Zoolander has been officially confirmed, this week we’re sharing a recently unearthed clip for all you male model lovers out there. From Second City’s 1994 revue Are You Now or Have You Ever Been Mellow, the clip is a brief but glorious look at the world’s most beloved Italian romance novel cover hunk. Steve Carell channels Fabio’s unparalleled physical beauty while unseen ensemble member Stephen Colbert provides the voice, so prepare yourself, because things get pretty steamy.
