I too have caught a couple episodes of this show. I thought it was pretty funny. I never really listened to his music, but am pleasantly surprised at his acting capabilities. I thought the funnier episode was when they were shooting a music video. They had hired a well-known video director who turned out to be some little kid. It was funny stuff.

I've caught three episodes of The Chris Issak Show on Showtime and I have to say I highly recommend it. I'm not particularly a fan of his music, but the show itself is quirky and cool. Sometimes it feels a little like Seinfeld or It's Gary Shandling's Show. My favorite so far has been the episode where his stalker goes missing.

If you haven't watched, give it a chance, you'll likely be pleasantly surprised. I was.

Great show. What's the deal with Mona, the naked woman on the rotating bed? I missed the first couple of episodes--is there some explanation of what exactly her role is?

I missed the first few episodes also. I think she's his conscience. They usually zoom into the fish tank and go through this winding MST3K/Get Smart type passage before getting to her on the lazy susan. This week she actually SAT UP. Yowzers.
