Mr. Show with Bob and David is an American sketch comedy series featuring former Saturday Night Live writer/actor Bob Odenkirk and stand up comedian/actor David Cross. It aired on HBO from November 3, 1995 to December 28, 1998.
This is a sketch-comedy show. The twist here is that all of the sketches (Even the monologue) are connected in some strange way.
Although it only ran for four seasons between 1995 and 1998, Mr. Show with Bob and David has gained a devoted cult following. Mr. Show writer/star Paul F. Tompkins sent out a photo to his Twitter followers earlier today, teasing "something new from the Mr. Show gang in the new year." Naturally, 2015 would be the perfect time for Mr. Show to come back in some incarnation, since it marks the 20th anniversary of the series' debut, but we have no further details at this time.
The photo features Paul F. Tompkins flanked by Scott Aukerman, Jay Johnston, Eric Hoffman, Bill Odenkirk, Brian Posehn and series creators/stars Bob Odenkirk and David Cross. It isn't exactly clear why this group is all together, who all either wrote and/or starred in Mr. Show, but there are several pens and pads of paper seen in the image, leading some to believe they are currently working on a new series, movie or another collaboration like a live stage show.Read More
