Let ‘Mr. Show’ People Walk You Through an Old ‘Mr. Show’ Sketch


The AV Club kicked off a great new feature today, called SketcHistory, and it involves them talking to the people who made a classic comedy sketch to share the story behind it. For the first installment, they tackled Mr. Show’s “Dalai Lama” and “Monk Academy” with David Cross, the sketch’s directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Little Miss Sunshine, Ruby Sparks), and writer Scott Aukerman all reminiscing about the sketch. If you’ve ever wondered why Flavor Flav never did an episode of Mr. Show, this piece gets to the bottom of it.
