This comedy/variety show specialized in parodies of movies and television shows and commercials. Often, they would also have a special guest (e.g., a TV actor) join them in the comedy sketches, with hilarious results. Written by

In college, playwright Jenelle Riley wrote her graduate thesis on The Ben Stiller Show's effect on comedy. It was subsequently published rumored to be used as an aid when putting together the DVD. See more »
The timestamps on Ben's video diary segments never increment, even though the individual segments usually last more than a minute. This is probably due to the fact that they were added in post-production, and weren't a result of a real camcorder's time/date stamp. See more »
In the closing credits, John F. O'Donohue was listed as a guest star although he appeared in every episode. See more »
I agree with the first writer, but thought I was the only freak. This show was definitely the funniest and freshest humor I can remember ever seeing on TV. If anyone has these episodes, please contact me I would love to see them again. I look back over the last decade and remember seeing some of the best emerging talent coming out of that show. I would love to rewatch these episodes and put things in perspective. They deserve the ultimate compliment, I couldn't have done it any better myself.
