HA: The Dana Carvey Show

Underrated, long-forgotten and absolutely classic, The Dana Carvey Show lasted a mere 7 weeks in the pre-Lewinsky world of 1996.  Carvey had the balls to do absurdity in the time slot following the suburban mind-turnoff of Home Improvement.  Needless to say, the two weren’t very compatible.  But the show was a springboard for an insane amount of talent.  Check the roster:

Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Charlie Kaufman, Robert Smigel, Louis C.K., Dino Stamatopoulos.  Here’s a few examples of a show far ahead of its time.
