MR. SHOW WITH BOB AND DAVID: WHAT TO THINK (TV)

Summary

One in this series of sketch comedy programs starring Bob Odenkirk and David Cross. In this installment, Senator Tankerbell illustrates his opposition to federal arts funding by telling a protracted, vulgar joke about a travelling salesman and a farmer's daughter; Tankerbell expresses regrets that he is unable to carefully monitor "Mr. Show," as he is busy censoring innocuous crafts at a rural folk arts festival; religious broadcasts on the What To Think (WTT) network feature a homosexual who inspirationally repents his "sinful" ways between bouts of debauchery; Jesus fires his little-known thirteenth disciple, Marshall, who displays the personality of a late night infomercial huckster; corporate monstrosity Globo-Chem receives an image makeover with a new animated spokesman called Pit Pat; and Mr. Show gets on Tankerbell's good side with a lavish musical version of the senator's joke.
