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.

This week’s clip comes from Second City’s 1994 revue Are You Now or Have You Ever Been Mellow? featuring ensemble performers Fran Adams, Scott Allman, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Jackie Hoffman, David Razowsky, and Ruth Rudnick. In the above scene, Razowsky plays a guy named Dave who asks his therapist (Colbert) for a progress report, only to discover that he knows nothing about him at all. “Why are you a therapist!?” “I didn’t think it was so much talking!” That’ll be $85, please.

Watch another clip of Colbert from the same revue here.
