Storyline

A Saturday Night Live alum, Dana Carvey brings his talent for sketch comedy to his own show with "The Dana Carvey Show." Not afraid to be lewd, crude, shrewd, or sophisticated, Dana Carvey and his team (mostly talented unknowns) embark upon a quest to lampoon the President, their sponsors, C-SPAN, and pop culture with their inventive and wacky skits.

Trivia

The first six episodes featured the name of the show's sponsor in the show's title. Dana Carvey wanted this as an homage to variety shows of the 1950's and 60's that had their sponsors' names in their titles. See more »

Very Funny.
24 April 2017 | by OrangieTooDopeSee all my reviews

I just recently discovered this show and I really like it.It is a bit dated though.It's full of current event and political references that were before my time but I just google the people they talk about and then the jokes are hilarious.It's really weird to see Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert twenty years ago.Colbert looks especially strange.For reasons I don't understand the first five episodes of this show have a different title that includes a sponsors name.Even stranger is that they seem to make fun of each sponsor.In the Mt. Dew episode Dana tries to get a guy to say it looks like pee.I assume that's why the last two had no sponsor and probably why it was canceled.I have to say that this show proves that Dana Carvey is funnier and edgier than I could have ever imagined from watching his terrible movies.If you can find this, you should watch it.
