One of the most influential sitcoms ever
17 November 2009 | by (Toronto, ON) – See all my reviews

When you look at the greatest comedies of the last 10 years: The Office (UK), Arrested Development and Curb Your Enthusiasm they are all direct descendants of the Larry Sanders' Show and really couldn't have happened without it. When the show first aired it was groundbreaking, offensive, hilarious and unlike anything TV had seen. It was one of the shows that propelled HBO into the whole "it's not TV" era of Sopranos, The Wire etc.

Today when you look around at shows on TV like The Office (US), Parks & Rec, Community and Modern Family - the influence of Garry Shandling's show is everywhere.

The Performance Artist is one of the more biting and political episodes that satirizes David Letterman's decision to cut Bill Hicks' act from his show 15 years ago. A great episode and a great show.
