BEN STILLER SHOW, THE: WITH DENNIS MILLER (TV)

Summary

One in this series of comedy shows hosted by Ben Stiller, with ensemble cast members Andy Dick, Janeane Garofalo, and Bob Odenkirk. This episode is also co-hosted by Dennis Miller, and dialogue between Stiller and Miller is interspersed throughout the show. The program begins with four parodies of well-known movies or television shows: "Three Men and an Old Man," in which three friends care for an invalid; "Manson," in which an all-American family keeps Charles Manson as a pet; "What Fits: by Dru Pee," an advertisement for clownswear, set at a poetry reading for clowns; and "America's Most Suspicious," in which Danny Bonaduce helps concerned citizens pursue suspicious people in their neighborhood. Also featured in this portion are two sketches, "Casting Call -- Beethoven" and "Casting Call -- The Mighty Ducks," in which famous actors audition for parts in these two family films. The last sketch is "The Pig Latin Lover's Ariety-vay Estacular-spay," a variety show with Susan Anton and Rip Taylor, set on a tropical island where pig latin is spoken. Commercials deleted. This program is closed-captioned.
