One Sunday night, members of Second City's 1969 cast decide to come to town for no special reason and do a show. The slate includes Harold Ramis, Joe Flaherty, Brian Doyle Murray, Eugenie Ross-Leming, Roberta Maguire, Jim Staahl, Judy Morgan and Jim Fisher, who lives in Indiana and had just dealt with a flooded basement. One member of the cast is missed: the late John Belushi. And the original director, Del Close, is teaching improv in the sky. The show kills, proving the lie that oldsters can't do sketch. "My penis is burning," says Ramis, in one howlingly funny sketch in a medical waiting room. "That's because someone is talking about it," comes the reply.
