Quotes

Dana Carvey: I was playing a lot of clubs warming up for this, and I, uh, I played Tahoe, and that was cool. Across the street, Tom Jones was playing. My wife and I went- have you ever seen him? He's such a great singer, but we went to see him, and he's literally... I'm not kidding. He has a THING in his pants, it- it's RIDICULOUS. It's like this, down to his KNEE! And no- he doesn't talk about it, but the whole audience is just STARING at it-

Crazy Credits

A dedication at the end of the program says "Good Night Paula, Dex, and Tom," which refers to Carvey's wife, Paula, and their two sons, Dex and Tom. After this dedication, another title card reads, "Yes, Dex, God does have feet. And they're very, very large." this refers to a story Carvey tells in which his (then) 4-year old son, Dex, asked Carvey, "Daddy? Does God have feet?" See more »

One of the best stand-up acts I have ever seen
10 July 2000 | by MikeyG-2See all my reviews

Dana Carvey is hilarious in "Critics Choice". This is one of my favorite acts of all time. I wish that HBO would rerun it so everyone can see the full act since Comedy Central shortens it to 30 minutes. I think that everyone can enjoy "Critics Choice" because Dana Carvey is awesome.
