Help Remembering old show

I was wondering if someone could help me...

I'm trying to remember the name of a show that I think may have been on TNN? It was a show where they joked with people in public. Like a guy would be feeding birds and someone in a bird costume would run up to him. Or a police officer would walk down a street past phone booths saying there were reports of squirrels attacking people in phone booths and a minute later 3 people in squirrel costumes would attack a guy in a phone booth...

A friend sent me this picture and it reminded me of the show but I can't remember the name for the life of me.



Any help would be appreciated.

It did. It was originally a British show on Channel 4, I believe. The guy who created it refused to do anymore episodes as he had become too well-known in England, but Comedy Central wanted the show, so he came and did some episodes in America.
