Absolutely brilliant.
1 October 1999 | by See all my reviews

How can you quantify perfection? It is a standard to which everything else must be compared. Okay that makes a better diamond commercial than a comedy review. Bad skits are few and far between. The pace of the show doesn't allow for anything to drag out too long. For Mr. Show, nothing is sacred ("...we have a saying around here: Get used to it Hitler..."). While it may offend some viewers, who cares! The writing is near comedic genius. The originality of each episode is truly refreshing. My new goal in life is to distribute Mr. Show tapes to unsuspecting friends with the tenacity of a very tenacious thing.
