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.]]>

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!
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.
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.Read more ›
My wife tried to get rid of our set by deliberately loaning them to a college student well known for irresponsibility.
I bought it again.
While there is SNL alumni here, the SNL influence on the show does not really show itself. This show is an improvement on SNL mostly because it's tape and the writers have time to develop their ideas and the performers have time to really act their parts. SNL is written in a week and the performers are up there doing bits they learned within 72 hours. You have repeat characters but little else.
Mr. Show also is a freer show than SCTV and Monty Python in the sense that they really were not afraid to go very nearly too far in alot of their sketches (it helps that Mr Show was on cable too, Monty Python and most of SCTV was on network television). This puts Mr Show on par with The Kids in the Hall (the show Mr Show basically replaced on HBO after it was moved to NBC). They approach jumping over the line with tortured slave writing comedy skits, CS Lewis Jr (modeled after Hank Williams Jr) singing the praises of the USA on the brink of their plan to blow up the moon and of course the Titannica sketch but they manage to avoid crossing the line.
Finally, the performers are all good actors.Read more ›

Not as funny as I remember it, but I admit I may be the issue on this one. I changed, I got older and perhaps too rigid and not open to the absurd.Published 8 days ago by Sidewayzbob
