The Larry Sanders Show Was Pretty Much the Best Comedy Ever, and Garry Shandling Knows It

“When I’m most objective I remembered explaining to HBO what my vision of the show was and I couldn’t use anything that was on TV as an example of what I wanted to do, so I knew it must have been innovative. Every so often I’ll see something on TV and think: ‘That wasn’t on TV before Larry Sanders’ – the single camera, more reality-based, non laugh-tracked comedies seem to be of the Larry Sanders sensibility.”

If you’ve never seen the show, the complete series is hitting DVD a week from today. You should probably get on board.
