Tim Robinson, Sam Richardson, Tim Mason, and Edgar Blackmon Talk Baseball at Second City
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.
It’s been nearly two months since Second City Chicago was nearly destroyed by an extra-alarm fire, but now that the theater is back in action, the Second City Archives has returned with a brand new, extra Chicago-themed clip. To celebrate Tim Robinson and Sam Richardson’s series order for Detroiters at Comedy Central, this week’s clip features the two alongside Tim Mason and Edgar Blackmon at Second City’s 2011 revue Southside of Heaven as a group of buddies who meet to watch a baseball game, only for things to turn super awkward once half of the guys call the Cubs the “N-words of baseball” while the other two call the White Sox the “white trash of baseball.” If this is the kind of comedy we can expect from Robinson and Richardson on Detroiters, it looks like we’re in for a very funny new show.
