    I remember watching this show. I laughed so hard when it was on. Loved loved the Lame Show. I always assumed that everyone had a local show like this before SNL. I was surprised that they didn’t.

    Almost Live had a season or so on Comedy Central I believe.  Could have been another channel but it did get a national airing.  I remember the S.P.R.O.U.T.S: Special Police Regiment for Ousting Uncool Things and Stuff.  I was living near LA at the time.

    Big props to giving this show some love; I just saw a re-run the other day, and forgot how good it could be when it was good, and why, for a while there, I genuinely preferred it to SNL.

    This podcast episode couldn’t get much closer to home. Hi from the western edge of Issaquah. 🙂
