Did You Know?

Trivia

This series popularized the character of accident-prone stuntman Super Dave Osborne (Bob Einstein), leading to a spinoff TV series and even a movie a few years later. The character, however, actually originated on an earlier John Byner TV series in the early 1970s. See more »

Alternate Versions

Some of the syndicated sketches have extra lines to work around the bleeped dialogue. For example when Super Dave Osbourne uttered a profanity regarding cutting off a man's testicles there's an extra line afterwards "I hope they didn't bleep this out. I don't see anything wrong with cutting off a man's toes". See more »

Only one word can really describe it
28 June 2003 | by RaleonSee all my reviews

This show is one of a kind. Though i don't really like the show myself, I have to admit there's something about it that keeps you glued. It's one of those shows you can watch and say to yourself "this is so stupid and disgusting... I'll just finish watching it..." it's great to have something so low brow and so politically incorrect actually work. Unfortunatley, it rarely worked since. BTW, if ány of you are still looking for it, get a satellite and get The Comedy Network. They still play it all the time.
