    Oh d--- in Seattle? The Showbox is a great venue, they were gonna demolish it and put in apartments (of f---ing course) but I believe it got saved. I saw so many good artists there...Lauryn Hill, D'Angelo, Isaiah Rashad/Schoolboy Q/Vince Staples all together, Odd Future as a collective, Young Thug, Danny Brown...the list goes on lol

    I think the only thing I ever saw at The Moore was The Book of Mormon.

    Mr. Show is my favorite sketch comedy show of all time and I rank it up with the Wire and the Sopranos and Arrested Development.

    After it was canceled they toured doing old sketches and new sketches... I saw them perform at the Moore and ran into most of the cast at the Showbox after the show for a concert (Southern Culture on the Skids and The .45s) and bought drinks for David Cross, Bob Odenkirk and John Ennis for a couple of hours... it was a bad a--- night.

    Never seen Mr. Show tbh but I've only heard great things.

    I think with any sketch show, it's always hit or miss. Even Chappelle's Show (which also has the benefit of not having that many episodes) or SNL in its prime, there were always some clunkers that we don't remember because they were bad. Like with all things, we tend to romanticize the good. Like I'm not a huge fan of SNL anymore but when I occasionally tune in there's usually 1-2 sketches I can enjoy, and I recognize its importance as a long-standing tradition/American comedy institution.

    At least for me, the cast just doesn’t stack up to past ones imo. Original character aren’t as funny. And the tendency to have skits where the cast are teens is kinda cringe. Every now and then s--- is funny but it’s 96% cringe

    Glad to see someone else recognizes greatness. One of the most criminally underrated things to come out of the 90s. Title fixed
