I did, but didn't think it was very funny. High Fivin' White Guys was a rip-off of Almost Live, a local Seattle comedy show that was on Comedy Central for awhile.

I thought it was good when it was on, but I can only remember one skit:

COPS in Ancient Egypt with Osiris Kowalski taking Moses to jail.

It had its moments. Bob Odenkirk's Charles Manson and Conspiracy Theory bits always got me. It was no Kids in the Hall or Mr Show, but pretty good for broadcast tv. i managed to tape all of them, including the "lost" 13th episode, a couple of years ago when FX ran a marathon of all of them and never showed them again.

I remember one about JFK being assisinated because of his knowledge of the electric car. Ha!

His Charles Manson is priceless, too.

I thought the 90210 parodies were funny. The Tony Bobbins' "Let Go Clinic" sketches were the best, though.

In a quarter-century of TV watching, I don't think I've ever seen a comedy sketch funnier than having U2 playing a kid's Bar Mitzva. Priceless!

I loved the boy scout spoof on "A few Good Men"...that was hilarious. This show was before it's time.

Classic show. I was lucky enough to tape all of them when FX aired all of the episodes in a row a couple summers ago. I always liked his Bruce Springstein skits...

Another funny one was the decendants of the Donner party owned a resturant. Something about poppy puffy meatballs or something.

I love the Ben Stiller show. I also saw them last summer FX showed all 13 episodes, I missed them the first time around. I hope thay put these on DVD.

Hey did you hear? Bob's a robot.

One of the funniest skits EVER was on this show: It's a parody of Scorsese's Cape Fear. Ben Stiller is Eddie Munster who was just released from prison, and is out for revenge against the executive who cancelled The Munsters! Stiller even does the infamous Deniro weight lifting scene and shows off many tattoos including a headshot of Fred Gwynne as Herman Munster. Goddamned funny stuff. It's right up there with Mad TV's "Gump Fiction" parody.
