Breaking into sketch comedy and improv can change your life --literally, from how you relate to people, write your jokes and discover how socially awkward you may be. How many African American stand-up comics make the leap and commit full force into the improv sketch world? Second City's newest touring company member, Chris Redd did just that. On a wintery afternoon in an empty board room near Second City's producer's row, Chris Redd sits down with Director of Outreach & Diversity, Dionna Griffin-Irons to share his new career. Find out how touring on the road, riding in a van with his "best buds" and marching in a hot Texas parade changed his life forever and how he wouldn't have it any other way.
