Quotes

Rich Hall: You know Fort Knox; every kid has one. That's the place where the REAL valuables are stored things like baseball cards, candy cigarettes, Pez dispensers, wax lips, the full 110-piece infantry division with the 14 kneeling gunners, and, of course, "Sgt. Fury" comic books.

Rich hall is genius
2 September 2000 | by (Chciago Il) – See all my reviews

I am devastated to see that "Rich Hall's Onion World" is not included in the IMDB, but Vanishing America is just another title for the same brand of scathingly hilarious humor. Rich Hall was the Tom Green of the mid-late 80s, but with a smaller following and a much smarter sense of humor. Comedy Central should air this and "Onion World" and show how cutting edge their programming used to be. Other than dated political references, I do not think Rich Hall is timely at all. People might be shocked it is 15-9 years old. A must see for anyone who enjoys frantic, smart, improvisational humor involving a brilliant frantic comedian meeting the public.
