Trivia

In an early "Super Dave" sketch, Super Dave (Bob Einstein) attempted to overcome being crushed by a wrecking ball dropped on his head, by repeating the word "Balloonball". The result, at the end of the sketch, was Super Dave's helmeted head, with two sneakers poking out underneath. The sketch was so popular that for a period the Showtime network used a cartoon icon of Super Dave's head on two feet in ads for the show. See more »

Alternate Versions

There are two versions of "Bizarre." One version contains nudity (mostly topless women) and swearing. By all indications, this version only appeared on Showtime in the U.S. This version was probably produced especially for Showtime, as it appears that, even in Europe, the below "censored" version was shown. The other version "bleeps" out the swear words and when a nude scene comes up, it shows a different camera angle (such as viewing the girl from the back so you can't see her breasts). However, rare skits that involved a woman being naked below the waist, just ended quite abruptly. This is the more common version and was the version aired in U.S. syndication. This version has been seen as recently as 1999 in Canada. See more »

Only one word can really describe it
28 June 2003 | by RaleonSee all my reviews

This show is one of a kind. Though i don't really like the show myself, I have to admit there's something about it that keeps you glued. It's one of those shows you can watch and say to yourself "this is so stupid and disgusting... I'll just finish watching it..." it's great to have something so low brow and so politically incorrect actually work. Unfortunatley, it rarely worked since. BTW, if ány of you are still looking for it, get a satellite and get The Comedy Network. They still play it all the time.
