Storyline

A mix of stand-up comedy and sketches, notable for its mixing of live action and computer animation. The "premise" is that a young boy is watching the show on a strange CD that his mom bought. Sketches include "Glass Booth Guy" in which a gas station clerk mocks people from his bullet-proof glass box and a sketch in which a woman is trying to break up with her weird boyfriend (he's a skeleton). The undisputed highlight is "OEDEBATTLE", a parody of Mortal Kombat-style games. In it, the young boy tries to defeat Steve's muscle-bound character; unfortunately, the characters he gets to choose from are "Accountant," "Sick Old Woman," "Little Girl," "Puppy" and "HerbaPet."

Genius
16 November 2003 | by (Georgia,USA) – See all my reviews

I still have this on tape. Still. This genius one hour special was the best thing NBC had on the air in 1997. Please beg NBC to show this again instead of what they're currently showing whenever something gets cancelled. Favorite moments: The OedeBattle game, where you battle Steve as such useless characters as a accountant, little old lady, etc. Bobby the Skeleton. Give this guy his own sitcom!Please!!
