Before he starred on NBC's recently ended series "30 Rock," John Lutz honed his skills on the stages of Chicago's ImprovOlympic (now iO Theater) and Second City, where he was also part of the national touring company.

Now, a decade after Lutz penned "15 Things You Should Know About Touring" for Second City road crews, he's devised another rundown: "10 Things To Know About Life After The Second City."

Here's a sample. The whole thing can be viewed on The Second City Network.

If you own a pair Skechers, throw them out.
"This one is for the guys. It doesn't matter if they are Skecher sneakers or what their website describes as "dress" shoes. Throw them out! One of the first things ladies notice are a man's shoes, and Skechers scream, "I still have action figures displayed on my bookshelf." I know you think that contrast stitching means business in the front, party in the back, but think about it. I've just described a mullet. You are wearing the feet equivalent of a mullet*."

*Except in Middle Earth. The feet equivalent of a mullet for hobbits is an actual foot mullet.

Note: Although it features SNL's Bill Hader, this video also contains and ample portion of John Lutz
