Mr. Show: What Happened?
The ultimate insider's guide to one of the most daring, influential, and critically-acclaimed comedy shows on TV. From the first time it aired on late-night TV in 1995, Mr. Show began developing a cult-like following, which has only grown since the series' end. Born out of the experimental "alternative" comedy scene in L.A., Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, two of the boldest, most innovative comedy minds to emerge in years, created a veritable comedy haven "where ideas hang out...and do whatever!" and discovered a perfect use of their brilliantly bent talents. Though their road was long and unpaved, Bob and David never compromised their vision of the show, and, with the creative autonomy granted by HBO, the result was a comedy series that is fresh and sublimely funny. Written by Naomi Odenkirk, this book chronicles Bob and David's journey from before their first awkward meeting to the taping of their final episode. It is chock-full of archival photos and artifacts, and features original, never-before-seen material plus a complete episode guide, making it a rich, unique time-caplet of what may be the period's most important and influential comedy movement.
