Where can I find a copy of this amazing comedy!

I taped this off pay-cable probably 4-5 years ago and made the mistake not
saving it. I
remember it as one of the funniest comedy specials I have ever seen. It
early Woody Allen meets Tarantino. I thought about it recently because so
many of the
memorable sketches in it reminded me of what's going on in today's
headlines. There was a
spoof of Howard Stern being shut down by the FCC, a controversial film
core dating shows, rappers singing violent lyrics, nudity on TV and on and
on and on. I
remember that the writers also wrote Landis' Kentucky Fried Movie sequel,
On The Moon." Like that film this show had so many cameos from
actors that I
remember thinking at the time how expensive it must have been for cable.
Shelly Long (who I
normally have a problem with) was absolutely hilarious as a Jane
Pauley-esque news anchor.
Martin Mull as a sleazy dating show host, Kenneth Mars (from The
religious shopping network. It was the kind of smart irreverence that
surfaces so rarely these
days. If this is available for purchase anywhere please snap it up and
me a call.
