September 13, 2018
[The] series was to Nineties humor what the original SNL was to Seventies counterculture: a blast of cutting-edge irreverence that captured a moment.

It hit a certain mark so definitively that you had to tell your friends about it and thrust it into their hands.
October 30, 2015
One of the greatest pieces of television ever assembled, and a show easily worthy of being considered among the best comedy programs of all time.

So consistently bizarre that I sometimes felt a bit lightheaded while watching it - though it might have just been a side effect of David Cross' falsetto voice.

Mr. Show offers up a mad world of silliness and satire that recalls the heyday of Monty Python.

Despite dedicating more time to its sketches and packing in jokes more densely than most shows, it still feels like one of the quickest and funniest sketch shows you've ever seen.

While the extremely low-budget show doesn't look like much today, its creative comedic concepts, memorable characters (Ronnie Dobbs), unconventional format, and bold, punk-rock attitude have earned the show credibility...

Its 30 episodes are certainly worth the hunt, if only to see stars such as Jack Black starting out, funny and fearless.
