This is a sketch-comedy show. The twist here is that all of the sketches (Even the monologue) are connected in some strange way.

One of the best shows to ever air on HBO
7 February 2002 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

If you were wondering, Tenacious D is the name of the show of the greatest band in the world of the same name. It consists of Jack Black and Kyle Gass. Add a camera and if you air their crazy adventures on HBO then you have yourself one of the funniest half hours since neanderthals tried to create fire. Although it only ran for 3 episodes, I hope this goes the way of the short-lived Clerks animated series and is updated to DVD with more episodes.
