the height of sketch comedy
30 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

The 80's was truly the era of sketch comedy, but as we know: comedy is all about timing...and this series ran in 1992 (i.e. past the point where "In Living Color" brought down the bar on sketch comedy so low you couldn't even limbo under it). Nonetheless, The Edge had all the elements of a great sketch comedy show; a superbly talented cast (Julie Brown, Jenifer Anniston, Tom Kenny and Wayne Knight to name a few who were known before and after the series), a mix of thought-provoking, slap-stick and situational humor, and a finger on the pulse of current-events/pop-culture. One of the best examples combining these elements would be the hilarious sketch panning the then-popular Beverly Hills 90210 series. The two most unfortunate aspects of this show are a) it was so short-lived (ran for just 1 season/20 episodes) and b) sadly it was caught-up in greedy Hollywood licensing/royalty/ownership politics, which means it will most likely never be released on DVD or other media; truly a loss for anyone who appreciates the best of sketch comedy.
