Extremely funny show.
28 June 2000 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Arliss is one of the best shows around, especially if you are in to sports. The cameos by notable sports figures make this show a hilarious and notable standout! It is a great venue for some very unique and talented actors such as Michael Boatman (Stanley) and Sandra Oh (Rita).

Check it out when you can, you won't be disappointed.
