Second City alums Frank Caeti and Matt Craig on satire, cold medicine and Tebow

Second City Chicago is this country's Mecca of funny. Among its famous alumni are John Belushi, Gilda Radner, Steve Carrell and Tina Fey. It also happens to be the place where Frank Caeti, formerly of MadTV, and Matt Craig, a former Saturday Night Live writer, first met and performed together, creating the working relationship that would ultimately lead them to write and perform their own shows as a comedic duo under the moniker "FrankenMatt." On June 7 and 8 at 7 p.m., FrankenMatt will perform their new satire, American Imperil, at Voodoo Comedy Playhouse. We caught up with the guys for the following Q&A, covering just about everything.
