It's Alive!

Show Summary

This cuddly little creature is Al, the host of this show. Along with a group of young canadian actors, he would introduce the various sketches of the show. I like to call it a Spoof Variety show, because that's exactly what it was. There were parodies of all sorts of things from Body Break to The Young and the Restless. It started out with one-hour long episodes, including two game show segments, a live musical guest, and lots of sketches in between. It was later cut back to a half-hour.

Such sketches included: Body Break ( Body Break )- Talk about how the key to proper exercise is the right motivation. Perhaps letting a dog chase you, with a hefty steak attached to your leg, or maybe calling a guy fatso and lardbucket till he starts running after you. The Young the Beautiful, the Shallow ( The Young and the Restless )- A hilarious spoof of the overdone, melodramatic soap opera including such ridiculous storylines as when Portia falls under amnesia and when she discovers that her boyfriend has been secretly cutting her hair in order to make a sweater. Another incident involved the italian mafia trying to take over an ex-karaoke star's fashion magazine empire.moreless
