Dana Carvey was on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show on CBS last night. They were discussing the documentary Too Funny To Fail, which is currently on Hulu. It’s about the Dana Carvey Show, a short-lived sketch show on ABC in ’96. I was a writer and performer on the show and I was honored to be mentioned as part of the “murderer’s row” of comedy talent on this cult favorite. Click HERE to see it!
I haven’t run into either of these guys in years, but they’re always incredibly kind when I do. They were so nice to include my name among all the other comedy talent that has come out of this show. Watch both The Dana Carvey Show and Too Funny to Fail on Hulu now!
Do you have any favorite sketches from that show? Would you like to see a reunion? Let’s hear about it!
I hope you’re as excited as I am! This Saturday, October 21st, the documentary about The Dana Carvey Show, Too Funny to Fail, premieres on Hulu. You’ll see our memories of a show that was a bit before it’s time. Edgy sketch on network television, hosted by one of my big comedy inspirations, Dana Carvey and featuring me and some of the funniest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. like Steve Carell, Heather Morgan, Stephen Colbert, Elon Gold, Peggy Shay most prominently. Including a writing staff that no one could ever afford again: Louis CK, Robert Smigel, Robert Carlock, Charlie Kaufman, Dino Stamatopoulos, Jon Glaser, and so many other writers and guest stars that it makes the head spin!
You’ll see interviews, rare footage of our auditions and behind the scenes videos and photos. This is a real treasure for comedy fans. You can see the trailer HERE.
You can watch starting this Saturday! I suggest supplementing your intake with popcorn.

This week I’ll be sharing some fun stuff from posts of the past. Ten years ago this week, I began blogging heavily on MySpace when the film The Ringer was released. I think a lot of those posts disappeared into the ether. But I have a lot of great posts from this blog that I’ll be re-posting, like re-gifting in honor of Festivus! For the rest of us! If anybody can help me recover my Myspace Posts, I’ll send those out, too!
