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.

Funny, low budget, local humor!
15 November 2004 | by (Orlando, Florida USA) – See all my reviews

Almost Live was one of my favorite shows, ever! Local TV stations rarely makes their own product anymore, outside of newscasts, but KING TV in Seattle ran this local comedy show for 15 years up until 1999. I would count down the hours to see the next episode every Saturday night! Billy Kwan, The High Fivin' White Guys, Speed Walker, Sluggy, Cops in Ballard/Issaquah/Renton/Mercer Island, The John Report, The Worst Girlfriend in the World, Pat Cashman in D.J. Priest/D.J. Cop/D.J. Dentist, Roscoe's Carpet Emporium (Going out of Business since 1958!), The Ineffectual Middle-Management Suck-ups, Uncle Fran's Musical Forest, Ballard Driving School, The Street Walking Lawyers of Aurora Ave, & Jet Guy!!! This show was a great example of how creativity and localisms cam make a show work without having a big budget, or being based in LA or NYC.
