Did You Know?


When asked on Michael Showalter's webisode series The Michael Showalter Showalter (2007) if Comedy Central had cancelled the show, Zach Galifianakis replied "Yes, thank God." He went on to explain that "messing with people" made him uncomfortable. See more »


Tillie Sullivan: Ask him how many times he thinks a woman has to experiment before she's considered a lesbian.
Kevin Beekin: Speaking on behalf of the lesbian community, how many acts... of lesbianics, I don't know the word. How many acts of lesbianics does it take before she's considered a lesbian?
Gay Man: Without making anyone uncomfortable... I'd rather not try to speculate on that question.
Tillie Sullivan: I heard it was five.
Gay Man: I would agree with that, yeah.
Kevin Beekin: Isn't it no longer considered experimenting once you know what it is?

22 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

This show is hilarious. It's quick, funny, and original. It subtly and slyly walks the fine line between totally inappropriate, and completely hilarious. The cast is all great. This show about an incredibly incompetent news crew is a welcome breath of fresh air among all these other faux news/talk shows on Comedy Central. (i.e. "The Daily Show", "The Colbert Report" and that stupid celebrity show that David Spade does.)

Unfortunately "Dog Bites Man" seems to be taking a lot of heat. Don't listen to those who don't get it. Hopefully this one will be around for a while, but watch this before Comedy Central realizes they have something good and cancels it.

And for Matt Walsh fans, this blows Upright Citizen's Brigade out of the water.
