A morgue attendant is talked into running a brothel at his workplace after a deceased pimp is sent there. However, the pimp's killers don't look too kindly on this new 'business', nor does the morgue's owner.
Each episode contains 30 minutes of extremely bizarre and funny sketch comedy performed by THE STATE, an 11 member sketch comedy troupe who wrote and starred in various sketches seen throughout the program.

Pseudo-European variety show with all the trimmings. Mr. and (the former) Mrs. Laupin and their dimwitted more-American-than-American sidekick Johnny Blue-jeans team up to bring their "European" show to an American audience with hilarious results. As they say "Viva Variety is as American as French Fries... with mayonnaise and vinegar." Written by

This show was probably a little too intelligent for average viewers (hence it didn't last long) but if you saw it you know it was good. The bickering couple who hosted the show were very funny. I remember one episode when Ben Stiller was the guest. The gag was that Henry Winkler was supposed to be the guest and they got stuck with Ben Stiller. They made Stiller wear a black leather jacket and ride a motorcycle. Then they asked him questions ("What was it like playing Fonzi?") that were written for Henry Winkler. Very funny stuff. Any show that was able to keep up with a comedy giant like Ben Stiller must have been good. If you somehow get a chance to see this do what you can to catch it. This was real comedy.
