I would like to know what sketch comedy show everybody likes.  Personally, I love the original 5 year run of SNL and the show from abot 1990 to 2000.  Aside from that, Kids in the Hall and Mr. Show would be at my top since they were able to stay fresh and funny with fewer writers and performers than SNL.  I've never really liked Mad TV, but if I'm forgetting any lesser known shows you like, I'd love to hear about them

 I love Little Britain and I think it is the best sketch show I have ever saw on TV. David Waillams and Matt Lucas are genius and they always make me laugh. I will be looking forward to see them live in their UK tour in Liverpool next year.

The first 2 years of Mad TV were the greatest thing in the history of the world. (David Herman  love  ) The recent shit doesn't even deserve to have the same name.

Upright Citizens Brigade, Kids in the Hall, Mr. Show and SNL have a special place in my heart.

No I think A Bears Tale has gone very weak.

Definitely classic SNL. All that talent in the late 70s and early 80s was too freaking much.

Love Mad TV and the good ol' Pythons too though.

Overall, I'd go with "Mr. Show with Bob and David" and "Upright Citizens' Brigade." SNL was alright, but it wasn't consistent enough to be "the best." Beside, I've seen too many of the episodes too many times to really laugh at it. And I'm still incapable of watching an entire episode of MadTV.

Steve Carell was pretty good, not super hilarious but funny.  I have to say that the best guy was one of the new cast members (I forgot his name).  He did a couple of impressions that knocked my socks off.

I think Steve Carell fitted right in with the cast. He never laughed at anything, like one of or both of the new guys did through parts of the show. Personally, I didn't like the new guys. They weren't as serious, and they weren't as funny as Finesse Mitchell or Kenan were their first season. I'm happy that Finesse and Kenan were bumped up to regular cast, as they deserve it.

This season looks promising, though next week looks bad. Good thing may be Jon Heder, aka Napoleon Dynamite, is hosting. Bad news, probally the worst this season, they're inviting Ashlee Simpson back.

Anyone that says SNL and MADtv are the best, have never seen Mr. Show with Bob and David. It's the most cutting edge and original.

There this new sketch show, which I really enjoy on BBC3, called Man Stroke Woman. It has Nick Frost in it. It is really funny and I think you (UK who have Sky) guys should see it. it is on Sundays at 10:30pm or you can watch the show online.

Whose Line Is It Anyway? (US Version)

I've heard the UK version is very good also, but I've never seen it myself. I am always on the floor in laughter with the US version (drew carey and the gang). Great impromptu!

I like when they bring audience members up to do sound effects, I always bust a gut watching that? I also like the one where they pull paper out of their pocket and read it.

"Mr. Show"...all of it.

And I have yet to sit through an entire episode of MadTV. Even though Comedy Central shows it like 9 times a day.

So we got "cable" tv recently, and they play both UK and US versions of Whose Line. Why did nobody tell me that it's almost identical!! The only diff being the host, and one or two characters. They still have the american dudes!

Duh.
The internet would have told you if you asked him: tv.com
They're not in the earlier seasons though.

I "got" Season 1 of the UK version, it was older than I thought, funky 80s haircuts and all. But Clive whatshisname was still bald-ish and had no neck.   laff
Which season did Ryan and Colin show up?

I think like 75% of the actors on the UK "Whose Line" were Americans, anyway. It was Ryan Stiles, Colin Mocharie, the dude with the glasses, Wayne "I'm Wayne Brady, bitch!" Brady, and that other singing white guy. It's no surprise that they all kept on the American version of the show.

I'm telling you, kid, the first 2 seasons: Godly. I don't think they're gonna put the 2nd season out on dvd 'cause the first season didn't sell too well. So no "Dentist in a box" on dvd for me. But season 1 is awesome too. Go buy it. Twice. The newer seasons are painfully bad, but omg this show kicked so much ass in 1995. Come on, Gump Fiction? Genius. McDumpsters? Hilaricious. (Hilarious + Delicious) *goes to watch his season 1 DVD*

Monty Python's Flying Cicus and Mr. Show bring true happiness.

"Goodnight moo-cow! Goodnight, hay! Goodnight... holes..."

I'm often forced to watch MadTV, and as much as I hate to do it, I have to say that some of it is actually funny.
