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>

Trivia

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 »

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.
