This show was one of my favorites during my college years. It was too short lived, though. I really wish that it had been picked up by another network or carried through in syndication. It was Jan Hooks first appearance on television years before she appeared on SNL. Mack & Jamie had some brilliant skits. One of my particular recurring favorites would take place during the Roman Era when one of them would play a "Roman citizen" and the other a shady "psst, hey buddy," kind of salesman. The one I remember the clearest was one in which the salesman was trying to introduce the citizen to a new product known as "a front lawn" and then when he had him hooked into the idea he would go on about all the additional things like mowing, seeding, weeding, watering, and so forth that were necessary to keep it up...and keep making money for the salesman for each item sold. Brilliant comedy! These guys are still making the rounds on the comedy circuit mainly doing corporate gigs these days. If they ever happen through Colorado at a club I definitely will be buying a ticket to the show!
