Editorial Reviews

If you want comedy on the edge and out of control, Mr. Show with Bob and Dave is the show for you! It's the late-night series that pays homage to the sketch-comedy tradition of Monty Python and Saturday Night Live, then launches into it's own eccentric orbit of social deviance and political incorrectness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very relevant stand out comedy... July 15, 2007
By M. Bros
Format:DVD
In Australia we're very backwards in non-mainstream comedies. One such standout comedy I believe, with mixed reviews, is Tom Goes To The Mayor. Which I think is brilliant. When watching the show I always wondered who is Bob Odenkirk and why he keeps on popping up in the show. When listening to the commentry I found out about Mr Show.

I watched a couple skits on Youtube and they blew my socks off, especially two skits: Globochem and It's Insane, This Guys Taint.

After getting the box set watching every episode again, it's all gold with very few misses. It's a strange thing to see such a good American sketch show run for such a short time, almost as long as British counterparts. Which means very little recycled comedy and relativley low amount of misses.

It's a very adult comedy with the cast using almost every expletive under the sun with no beeps, another touch of realism. This is definatly a show the FCC would frown upon as every sketch pushed the boundries.

Well worth the purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars See Choo Choo the Herky Jerky Dancer February 11, 2006
Format:DVD
A quick tip for all readers: I love Amazon and everything, but Bestbuy.com is currently selling this DVD collection for the incredible price of $39.99, which is barely more expensive than purchasing a single season DVD. Take advantage before they realize it and hike the price way up.

Mr. Show was one of my favorite shows when it was on HBO. The comedy is so strange and eccentric that it stands in a class of its own. Individually, Bob Odenkirk is a very talented comedy writer and David Cross is an equally talented stand-up comedian. Together, these two comedic minds created a unique showcase of off-beat comedy sketches. This show also introduced the world to other comedic talents such as Jack Black, Sarah Silverman and Brian Posehn.

Getting all four seasons together is a great deal. You get to see how the show progressed and became more collected by the time they reached the 4th season. By that point, the comic duo had perfected their teaming and were shelling out some seriously memorable material.

Great show and a great DVD collection to have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now Who Wants Ice Cream? January 21, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's refreshing to see people who can make fun of everything and don't hold any prejudice against any one sect. These guys comedy holds no limits to who or what they target. A must have for anyone who loves realistic comedy. When I saw they were releasing all their seasons in one box set I was sold. If you haven't seem Mr. Show don't waste your time picking out one season at a time to see if your going to like it just buy the whole set because you will end up buying them all eventually. Comic genius's they guys are.

Mr. Show: The Complete Collection is a great sketch comedy show that goes beyond the traditional boundaries of the genre. This show is reminiscent of Monty Python's Flying Circus in its free flowing style, but is also ground-breaking in both structure and content. The skits often border on "stupid-humor" that can be easily enjoyed by those with a short-attention span. But when you peel back the layers, it is clear that there are deeper satirical meanings to many of those silly skits.

Bob Odenkirk and David Cross used their HBO show to push the boundaries of what was acceptable in humor and television. They brought significant writing chops with them, having written for SNL and the Ben Stiller show, and drawing on their connections with the Second City comedy troup. Some of the stars who get face time here include Jack Black, Sarah Silverman and Brian Posein.

For four seasons, they beat the odds and despite a terrible time slot (Monday's at midnight) gathered a cult following. While I never got to see much of the show while it was on TV, I was familiar with the show and I jumped at the chance to buy the complete set. I am really glad that I did.

This show is definitely not for everybody, but for those with open-minded experiemental taste in humor, it is well worth watching. No taboo is untouched, including sex, race and religion. So watching this show requires you to reserve judgement. However, be warned that there are plenty of parental advisories. There is gratuitous cursing and plenty of sexual skits that are not going to appeal to those who are easily offended.

5.0 out of 5 stars How Great Is This! October 5, 2008
Format:DVD
I love this show. My favourite sketch show of all time. So well done even from the very first episode. So forward thinking and intelligent yet not pretentious. I just wish HBO had let the to a few more seasons because I think by the third season they had really hit their stride. If you do not like this show at first. Do not worry it can be a grower for some. But in saying that though, everyone who I have played this to has instantly found this hilarious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Peerless sketch comedy with a one-of-a-kind twist. December 27, 2005
Format:DVD
Cheerfully blending a gee-golly, "let's put on a show" sweetness with a brazenly filthy sense of humor, "Mr. Show" is arguably the funniest and most original sketch comedy show since Monty Python. Bob Odenkirk and David Cross lead a talented cast -- and guest stars like Jack Black and Sarah Silverman -- through increasingly loony sketches that seamlessly blend into one another, stream-of-consciousness style. You could call it "mashup comedy," as much of the series' hilarious punch comes from fusing two disparate elements -- the Pope and the O.J. Simpson trial, for example -- into one bizarre whole. Highlights include the folksy proprietors of a Mom-and-Pop porn shop; an infomercial for pans which rapidly becomes a twisted psychological nightmare; Jack Black in a slacker pardoy of "Jesus Christ Superstar"; America's quest to blow up the moon; a group of mobsters arguing over what the biggest number is; and a Jerry Springer-like talk show set on a life raft adrift in the ocean. "Mr. Show's" definitely not for everyone, but if you've got adventurous tastes in comedy, you're all but certain to love it.

Classic sketch comedy. Up there with Monty Python IMO. Of course no sketch comedy nails it 100% of the time, but I think they nailed it more often and more hilariously than anyone... Read more

Is the complete set any different than the individual seasons?
This set is just the first four seasons packed together in a large slip case; it contains no extra material that isn't on the original DVDs. If you can buy them separately for cheaper I suggest you do that, unless you really want that slip case.

If it's HBO Week, why hasn't this gone on sale?
I got it for $17.99 a short while ago, but disc 2 was defective and they were "out of stock" but I see that's no longer a problem.
