Satirical newscaster Stephen Colbert provides humorous commentary on the big issues going on in the United States and the rest of the world, with his larger-than-life ego and overly-patriotic spirit along with him every step of the way.
Each episode contains 30 minutes of extremely bizarre and funny sketch comedy performed by THE STATE, an 11 member sketch comedy troupe who wrote and starred in various sketches seen throughout the program.

Creators, cast and network executives recount the strange history of the Dana Carvey Show, the irreverent prime time sketch comedy show that aired for eight episodes on ABC, following its star's meteoric run on Saturday Night Live.
I was a major fan of this show when it aired in 1995. The sketches were so freaking hilarious! I loved the theme song "If I Knew You Were Coming, I'd Have Baked A Cake!" This is really where I started loving Stephen Colbert and Paul Dinello. The summer of 1995 on Comedy Central was pivotal. The Vacant Lot and Exit 57 made it so. Sadly, I didn't tape any of them. I thought Comedy Central was really off base when they decided to let this show slide into oblivion. It's just sad that Comedy Central didn't back these endeavors further. If only I knew then what I know now; that it would be an uphill battle to find anyone who even remembers Exit 57, I would have taped every episode. But the sketch comedy was so well written, very much on par with The Kids in the Hall, that I thought it would be a shoo-in for repeats. Alas, I was wrong. I'm upset that they've let these two shows wither away in memory lane when there is clearly a fan base who would buy a DVD set of these two shows!
