Goofs

Towards the end of one episode in the fourth season, the show offers the math problem "If he drives 15 MPH for fifteen minutes, how far has he travelled? Answer at the end of the show." When the end credits roll, they say that the answer is 3.5 The correct answer is 3.75 See more »

Quotes

Tom Kenny: That's right, Bob. Listen to your friend, a person who makes more money than you, is better than you, and therefore beyond criticism. This is called the Worthington Law and it's used to gauge the value of human worth.

User Reviews

Your sides will ache!
16 February 1999 | by cinefanSee all my reviews

"Mr. Show With Bob and David" is so incredibly funny, you might just wet yourself from laughing so hard. There is no other criticism to offer except that it is consistently hilarious. They certainly cross over the line of good taste often, but for those with an appetite for edgy humor, there is no equal. Bob Odenkirk and David Cross were originally writers and performers for the short-lived "Ben Stiller Show." Bob also wrote for "Saturday Night Live." Along with "Kids In the Hall," this is by far the best sketch comedy program in the past ten years. It puts "SNL," "Mad TV," and the rest to shame.
