Trivia

Almost Live! (1984) originally began its 6:00 PM Sunday evening run as a show called "REV" ("Rock Entertainment Videos"), a local showcase for music videos and live performances in the early days of MTV. It eventually evolved a talk show format with host Ross Shafer, still focusing on music with a few comedy acts. As the show shifted more toward comedy, it officially became Almost Live! (1984).

The best American comedy show of recent years
25 June 1999 | by See all my reviews

I have grown up in the Seattle area, and my daddy weaned me on "Almost Live." Consistently funny, great timing, and some truly inspired skits make for great Saturday evening viewing. I have been known to leave parties to come home and watch it, then go back. The local NBC affiliate that shows it, KING 5, airs "AL!" at 11:35pm, then "Saturday Night Live" at 12:05am. In my almost 15 years of watching "Almost Live", I have never seen it resort to the 'dick and fart jokes' that I saw on SNL time and time again. There are so many things in the Seattle area to make fun of (Kent, Lynnwood, Ballard, the entire east side of Lake Washington), there's no reason to fall into toilet humor as the more recent years of SNL did. I guarantee that any way you can get ahold of an episode of "Almost Live", it will be worth it, a million times worth it.
