The subtle trick Showtime's "Penny Dreadful is that it is far less about the blood, gore and the specter of gruesome death than the sharp pain and exhilarating pleasure of living, and the terror of feeling alone even in close company. Read our review in the May Picks section.
I think that's what the title was when they showed it on CBS way back in the late 80s early 90s. It was a filler show and didn't always come on when it was supposed to and got moved around a lot but it was really funny.
I'm pretty sure this is the same show cause I don't see any others with these two guys listed. They had some really interesting and hilarious skits including: OLYMPUS - A soap opera about the gods of Greek Mythology done in a Dynasty format.
Confuse A Cat - Where everyone once in a while they made things interesting to wake up a sleepy not so active cat.
The rest of the skits escape me and were more in the tradition of Benny Hill and Monty Python from what I recall. Very good series. I had forgotten about it till recently.
