Trivia

The tune that plays in the background after the opening credits by Dweezil Zappa is an alternate version of the instrumental track "Groove Holmes" by the Beastie Boys, from their 1992 album "Check Your Head." Ben Stiller is a noted fan of the Beastie Boys. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Crazy Credits

In the closing credits, John F. O'Donohue was listed as a guest star although he appeared in every episode. See more »

Unparalleled skit comedy
12 July 1999 | by See all my reviews

I heard that "In Living Color" reruns were on cable again (I don't believe it) and if it's true the only thing that needs to be added is Ben Stiller reruns. The cast on this show was a priceless gem! Why did this, the funniest skit show I've ever seen, go off the air for "the Edge"??? That's show biz I guess. The Ben Stiller Show, along with Simpsons, Seinfeld, and Married With Children, are the only shows I have ever tuned into religiously week after week. Well, I don't see how it could happen, but if Ben Stiller becomes even BIGGER of a star perhaps the reruns will return. I need to see this stuff again to reappraise the value of my stupid TV set.
