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.

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 Dana carvey show....a tear comes to my eye when i think about what it could have been. I'm 20 yrs. old and remember my father telling me about this show and the controversy after the first episode. This is when i started to watch it and every episode was a treat,to get sappy like my grandmothers apple pie. The show was something to look forward to throughout the week and finally get a dose...like a drug. The skits ranged from skinheads of Maine to grandma the clown, from maddone to the wizard of oz missing scene, to hell, the Chinese restaurant being the main sponsor of the show! I want a second dose...but i think it cant be picked up and done again, mainly because after seeing the master of disguise and like most comedians after children they loose their art form and just get plain stupid and uncreative...like Elton john coming out of the closet. PLEASE RELEASE ON DVD...BETA? ill take it on beta for god sake. and I'm not a fanatic, but drew Carey will never be looked at the same way, after he filled in for the best comedy skit show ever. All in the family will make the best sitcom.
