Pseudo-European variety show with all the trimmings. Mr. and (the former) Mrs. Laupin and their dimwitted more-American-than-American sidekick Johnny Blue-jeans team up to bring their "European" show to an American audience with hilarious results. As they say "Viva Variety is as American as French Fries... with mayonnaise and vinegar."Written by

Members of MTV's comedy series The State return to television on Comedy Centrals Viva Variety. On paper, the idea looked pretty good. A Variety Show from the 1970's for the 90's. Music, showgirl dancers, comedy sketches, and celebrity guests. The only problem, Viva Variety has hardly any of that! Only lasting a handful of episodes, the show only had 1 or 2 recognized celebrity guests and the comedy was only funny 1/4 of the time. With no original music of any Las Vega style dance numbers, the only thing that held up the show was the sketch comedy, which too, could not hold up on its own. The Premise of a Spoof style show had spoof sketches. So the idea of a spoof of a spoof was beyond most of the members of the audience that Comedy Central has. In the end, the idea was original and members of the show were talented, but nothing progressed. The show was a failure by the first episode back in the summer of 1996. From here, the creative team behind the show went on to create Reno 911.....here we go again!
