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

this show rocks.
30 September 2002 | by (new york city) – See all my reviews

i just saw these guys live in Philly, and their show is one of the greatest things to ever grace the television set. the shows are all remarkably written, with scenes and themes flowing in and out of one another. there are a lot of modern sketch-comedy shows that i consider ground-breaking, such as "The State", "The Kids in the Hall", "TV Funhouse", and even "Saturday Night Live". However, "Mr. Show with Bob and David", despite its short, four-season lifespan, does the best job of re-inventing sketch comedy, in a form that is like no other. Lots of characters, lots of childish, scatological humor, lots of laughs, all packaged into one hell of a show that for all of its silliness is extremely intelligent.
