David Cross (on how he started Mr. Show with Bob and David): There's this really cool alternative comedy scene in LA that Bob Odenkirk and I were kind of a part of. We would do these sketch shows, everybody would do different kinds of skits, and Bob and I knew each other from that. He had a Tuesday night show, and suggested we write a few sketches together. We later did some other stuff, and found that we really worked well together. We both had very different styles and ideas. One day we just decided to do our own show.
