This is a sketch-comedy show. The twist here is that all of the sketches (Even the monologue) are connected in some strange way.

Larry would eat Conan O'Brien for breakfast
26 April 1999 | by (Indiana, USA) – See all my reviews

Sufficiently skewers the late-night circuit. The most important names in 21st century comedy were on this show. Forget Seinfeld, this was the funniest show on TV of its time, because it felt so real. Can Garry Shandling ever do another show after this? He may have shot his career in the foot after exposing the true demons that run in entertainment circles. Devastatingly funny and will be influential to many. One of a kind. "I hate you, I hate my audience, I hate this network, I hate this job, I hate myself. So, your show is on Tuesdays at 8:30 on ABC, right? We'll be right back. Stay tuned."
