Mr. Show with Bob and David

Mr. Show is a sketch comedy series featuring Bob Odenkirk and David Cross. It appeared on HBO from 1995 to 1998. Each episode essentially consists of a series of skits, each one transitioning into the next by way of some sort of tangential association; for example, sometimes a minor character in one skit is followed as the major character in the next. Often common storylines or themes are returned to at different times throughout a given episode. The show is highly unpredictable and often quite absurd.

Cast members on the show included Bill Odenkirk, Brett Paesel, Brian Posehn, Dino Stamatopoulos, Jay Johnston, Jerry Minor, Jill Talley, John Ennis, Karen Kilgariff, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Paul F. Tompkins, Sarah Silverman, Jack Black, and Tom Kenny.

The show also included some notable guest appearances, including Ben Stiller, Brian Doyle-Murray, Dave Foley, Janeane Garofalo, Jon Cryer, Jon Stewart, Jonathan Katz, Jeff Goldblum, Julia Sweeney, Kato Kaelin, Laura Kightlinger, Maynard James Keenan, Michael McKean, and Vince Vaughn.

Mr. Show also spawned a spinoff movie, Run Ronnie Run, that went straight-to-DVD.



Every episode begins with an individual introducing the hosts, Bob and David. During the first and second season, Mary Lynn Rajskub did this, while in later episodes the character doing the intro would appear later in the episode. In the opening dialogue, Bob is almost always dressed in a suit, while David is dressed down.

Every episode's title is taken from a line of dialogue heard during the episode, with two exceptions. The title of the first episode in Season One, "The Cry of a Hungry Baby," does not appear anywhere in the episode, and the title of the sixth episode in Season Four, "Eat Rotten Fruit from a Shitty Tree," is a lyric from a song that only appears in instrumental form.

Certain lines are often spoken by different characters during the course of a show (e.g., "I was on the eighteenth hole!" in the "The Biggest Failure in Broadway History" and "Who let you in?" in the episode of the same name).
