Storyline

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 <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Best intro for Washington State
22 November 2003 | by (Kent, WA) – See all my reviews

As a native Washingtonian who grew up to Almost Live! the thing that worked best for me was that the show was basically one big inside joke for those of us who knew the area. Sadly, this is why the show really wasn't all that funny in syndication. When I met out of state residents at college, I would insist that they watch the show in order to understand the area. That way, they could learn that Scandinavians live in Ballard, yuppies live on the East Side, and rednecks live in the South End. These are vital things to know!!! It's no small coincidence that Almost Live ended up coming out with a guide to the northwest video.

It was always great to watch this show before SNL, and take pride in the fact that a bunch of local talent consistantly creamed the pathetic attempts at comedy produced by the national "talent" in New York. I just wish KING TV wouldn't have decided to pull the plug on the show (it was making money, but they wanted to make MORE money), and that stars like John Keister and Pat Cashman would have been able to springboard into the national scene to share their talent with the rest of the country.
