A mixture of skit comedy and stand-up from a Seattle-based group of performers. Skits tended to focus on social issues, such as "The Worst Girlfriend in the World". One regular feature was "Mind Your Manners, with Billy Quan", in which Quan would demonstrate proper behavior by beating the living daylights out of rude people. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

Did You Know?


On Friday April 1, 1989, King 5 in Seattle, Washington aired a special April Fools edition of Almost Live! It opened with a Special Report that the Space Needle crashed to the ground. Although in jest, King 5 and Almost Live! got in trouble when people took the fake special report seriously, by tying up the 9-1-1 lines. A month later, they received a "pardon" by then-Washington State Governor Booth Gardner. See more »

The best export from Seattle besides Starbucks.
7 February 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When the not ready for prime time players left Saturday Night Live. They appeared in Seattle. I watched this show when it was reruns on comedy central and now I'm waiting for latest episodes. My only complaint is that the half-hour is way too short and not enough time. You're just getting started but enjoy it especially since it sells Seattle better than Frasier. One sketch quickly described a Seattle summer: an afternoon where you cancel your plans. Then it rains again. One classic sketch in Gilda Radner style Tracey Conway as tortured, stalking country singer, Sandi Todd with hits like "Rabbit stew is really, really good for you" and "Voices in my head, tell me what to do" and "I've seen Fatal Attraction 938 times." Another classic is the Mercer Island patrol or the Beverly Hills of Seattle. A cop arrests somebody for drinking tap water. Call your NBC affiliates and demand this show. It certainly is better than most primetime shows anyway. Do not miss it. It's worth taping at 3:30 on a Sunday morning.
