Not as expected
20 May 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a very briefly aired show on Mtv, not Stiller's sketch show on HBO a couple years later. The other comment posted here has the two confused. This show was funny in it's own right, though. Really the start of what Stiller's persona has developed into.
