From the people who brought you "Strangers With Candy"
This Comedy Central show was unfortunately short-lived (two seasons), despite winning a Cable Ace Award. It was a pretty straightforward sketch show brought to you by a bunch of Second City vets - Stephen Colbert, Paul Dinello, Mitch Rouse, and Amy Sedaris (and Jodi Lennon from Chicago's Annoyance Theatre) - who went on to create and star in Comedy Central's "Strangers With Candy." It was also brilliant. Now that "Strangers" is a success and Stephen Colbert is high-profile on "The Daily Show," let's hope this show is brought back for reruns... even though it probably will never be seen again. Too bad, because it was sure a thousand times better than MTV's "The State," Comedy Central's "The Vacant Lot," or Fox's "Mad TV." Smart, side-splitting comedy!
