Default The Dana Carvey Show - The Complete Series DVD Review

Saturday Night Live veteran Dana Carvey puts a wildly hilarious spin on politics and pop culture in this mind-blowing but short-lived sketch comedy series. The Dana Carvey Show included the comedic talents of Steve Carell (The Office) and Stephen Colbert (The Colbert Report) before either was a household name. Robert Smigel (SNL, TV Funhouse) was the executive producer along with Carvey - and also appeared in the cast. The creative staff included Louis C.K., legendary writer-director Charlie Kaufman and Dino Stamatopoulos (Moral Orel) among others.

From this extraordinary pool of talent came some of TV's funniest moments. In addition to Carvey's legendary impressions and characters, Smigel introduced his now-famous "Ambiguously Gay Duo" on this show. Carvey and Carell had a running bit as two pranksters, and send-ups of The Beatles were consistently spot-on. Carvey's unmatched humor and talent attracted many surprise guests who made unexpected appearances in the episodes.

The Dana Carvey Show may have hit the airwaves "a moment too soon." Only eight episdoes were made - and only seven of those were broadcast before it was cancelled. Here you can see why the show has maintained an enthusiastic following among those lucky enough to have seen it in 1996.
