Yup. It’s true. Colbert, Carell, Smigel (triumph the insult comic dog and those crazy SNL cartoons) and Carvey all in one sketch comedy show. Only problem is happened 12, no wait, 13 years ago. On ABC. For 7 episodes that actually aired.
Yeah, I remembered hearing about it, but never actually caught it before it was yanked. Now it is apparently coming out on DVD, this week maybe? With the “fabled” 8th Episode that never actually aired.
One can view a 5 minute version of the first episode below. I’m kinda partial to the Germans Saying Nice Things sketch. Carvey almost resembles Andy Kaufman playing a Deutschlander in it…
Of course, one shouldn’t forget the Bill Clinton opening, which, in the full episode, actually features Bill nursing a bunch of dogs and cats, milk pouring out of his multiple nipples. But then I’ve said too much already.
