Storyline

A Saturday Night Live alum, Dana Carvey brings his talent for sketch comedy to his own show with "The Dana Carvey Show." Not afraid to be lewd, crude, shrewd, or sophisticated, Dana Carvey and his team (mostly talented unknowns) embark upon a quest to lampoon the President, their sponsors, C-SPAN, and pop culture with their inventive and wacky skits. Written by Sam Hayes <gshayes@mail.gwi.net>

Trivia

The first six episodes featured the name of the show's sponsor in the show's title. Dana Carvey wanted this as an homage to variety shows of the 1950's and 60's that had their sponsors' names in their titles. See more »

The Mountain Dew Joke
24 September 2004 | by (St. Louis, MO) – See all my reviews

Cody, I simply had to respond to your message. My brother was the other actor in the skit with Dana where he went on and on saying "Bill...what does it LOOK LIKE!?" over the glass of Mountain Dew on the table. Bill responds with many safe answers before settling on "Liquid Sunshine!"

My brother -- Bill Chott -- had the privilege of being part of the cast and he wrote for the show as well. He had the pleasure of working with his two Second City teachers: Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert. Heather Morgan was just a doll besides holding her own in a predominantly male cast. Robert Smigel and Dana Carvey rounded out the genius of this group. The writers wrote some of the most quick-witted funny material I have ever seen. I think that is why NOT everyone GOT this show...it takes a certain level of intelligence to appreciate all the jokes.

I sincerely hope that they bring the whole season (11 eps in all) out on DVD soon. With lesser shows appearing on DVD left and right, I am miffed that this one has not been considered. I am proud of my brother's work in this show, of the stellar cast and crew, and of the fact that I got to visit the set back in April of 1996 and see it all happen!

Thanks!
