Put your poo box away
16 April 2006 | by (Southwest Asia) – See all my reviews

This is the episode that introduced me to Mr. Show, and it is one of the greatest.

In this show you get all the python-style sketch linking, satire to the Nth degree, and the innocence of a low-budget comedy series scraping by.

Jack Black is an "expert witness" desperate for a job. Tom Kenny is Abraham Lincoln with a New York accent. David is "classic" as a terminally ill kid who becomes the "greatest" guitar player ever. Bob is the Pope -- if the ring don't fit...

The yardstick of sketch shows is if you can watch them again and again, and still find something funny about them. This is one of those shows.
