The Dana Carvey Show

Show Summary

Former Saturday Night Live castmember Dana Carvey returned to television as the host and star of this sketch comedy series. From his days at SNL, Carvey brought some of his impressions and characters to the show. Each week, the show would usually be sponsored by a product of PepsiCo, Inc.
The cast and writers included Robert Smigel, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Elon Gould, and Spike Feresten. The future SNL animated sketch, the Ambiguously Guy Duo, first appeared on this show.
Though the show had a popular lead-in (Home-Improvement), the show was doomed from the beginning. Also, the first sketch was depicting President Clinton breast-feeding puppies.
The show was a launching pad for Dave Chapelle, Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell in their comedy careers.
