Trivia

Almost Live! (1984) originally began its 6:00 PM Sunday evening run as a show called "REV" ("Rock Entertainment Videos"), a local showcase for music videos and live performances in the early days of MTV. It eventually evolved a talk show format with host Ross Shafer, still focusing on music with a few comedy acts. As the show shifted more toward comedy, it officially became Almost Live! (1984).

I watched this regularly.
3 April 2002 | by (Jacksonville, FL) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this show on a regular basis when it was airing as re-runs on Comedy Central. I loved it! I wish it would make a come-back!

Some of my favorite skits include "Mind Your Manners with Billy Quan" or "The High-Fiving White Guys" or the adventures of the "Speed Walker" who was a superhero who, well, he speed walked around Seattle fighting crime. Just looney. Of course, who could forget the skit about a hunting season for street mimes? "Wait! You can't shoot him, he's behind an invisible wall. It would be unsportsman-like" or something to that effect.

I agree with other posters here who say this show was better than the crap they were doing on SNL at the time. I miss it.
