Remembering Bernie Sahlins

 

The Second City -- and the theater world -- lost an important innovator this weekend when Bernie Sahlins died at the age of 90. Sahlins was one of the founders of the comedy powerhouse that started in Chicago in December 1959. He was credited with mentoring John Belushi, Bill Murray and Gilda Radner, among many others.

In 2004, Sahlins appeared on WTTW's The Friday Night Show to discuss his book, Days and Nights at The Second City. Watch the full video from our archives:
