MR. SHOW WITH BOB AND DAVID: THE CRY OF A HUNGRY BABY {SERIES PREMIERE} (TV)

Summary

The premiere of this series of sketch comedy programs starring Bob Odenkirk and David Cross. This series of interlinked sketches, combining live and prerecorded segments, includes the following scenes, among others: Bob and David display their unimpressive credentials for hosting a television show; a well-meaning priest becomes the victim of an obnoxious man's "bets" at a suburban party; a man's request for change for a dollar at a convenience store is subjected to a numbing chain of decision-makers; Ronny Dobbs, a drunken, shirtless lout, becomes rich and famous as a result of his numerous arrests on reality-based police shows; and Dobbs's star fades when the good life leads him to sobriety and reasonable behavior, as documented in the tragic film "Natural Born Drunk."
