The History of Comedy - Season 2 Episode 6 - Sketch and Improv' - The episode explores the history of sketch and improv comedy and how it has evolved into a significant part of comedic talent today. Ever since Commedia dell’Arte brought travelling troupes through Renaissance Europe presenting short shows with improvised dialogue, sketch and improv comedy has been an important part of new comedic talent. On television, sketch comedy has always been present with Your Show of Shows, Monty Python’s Flying Circus, SCTV, The Kids in the Hall, Mr. Show and In Living Color, providing decades of short-form comedy to audiences. In comparison, Saturday Night Live has spent over 40 years recruiting talented performers from influential improv groups to create the longest-running sketch show in American television history.
