Mr. Show with Bob and David (HBO)
Mr. Show with Bob and David is an American sketch comedy series starring and hosted by Bob Odenkirk and David Cross that originally aired on HBO from 95-98.
Cross and Odenkirk introduced most episodes as semi-fictional versions of themselves, before transitioning to a mixture of on-stage sketches performed in front of a live audience and pre-taped segments.

Jack Black in "Jeepers Creepers Semi-Star"
The show featured a number of alternative comedians as both cast members and writers, including Sarah Silverman, Jack Black, Tom Kenny (SpongeBob SquarePants), Paul F. Tompkins, Karen Kilgariff, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Brian Posehn, Jill Talley, Scott Aukerman, and Dino Stamatopoulos.
The New KKK now 100% hate-free
It was nominated for four Primetime Emmy Awards as well as a Golden Satellite Award.

Each episode of Mr. Show consists of a series of sketches, at times surreal, each one transitioning to the next by an unbroken link reminiscent of Monty Python's Flying Circus or The State.

Can we all just get along? 😁 Yes, we can.
For example, a minor character in one sketch might return as the major character in the next. Often, common themes or storylines are returned to at different times throughout an episode.

As a premium cable show, its audience was limited, but DVD editions, have opened the show to a broad new audience. More
