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

Ground Breaking Comedy...amazing.
6 March 2000 | by (Long Island, NY) – See all my reviews

If you want to see one of the most groundbreaking skit comedy shows ever, look no further than Mr. Show. Wow. Each episode is a work of art, every skit amazingly flows into the next. Filmed skits, flow into live skits, back and forth... absolutely amazing. Also, if you want to see some great character work, look no further. Bob Odenkirk and David Cross are some of todays best comedic character actors', and the supporting cast is unbelievable. Also the fact that it was on HBO, the show was able to get away with more. Its so great. They only made 30 episodes, and now they are on hiatus while filming the First "Mr. Show" movie. What a great show.
