BEN STILLER SHOW, THE {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.
