This off-the-wall assortment of bogus TV commercials, fake phone calls and inappropriate comic sketches features Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, the creators of "Tom Goes to the Mayor." The show features appearances by a variety of celebrities -- a list that includes David Cross, John Mayer, John C. Reilly and "Weird Al" Yankovic.
Comic Eric André hosts a late-night show that parodies low-budget public-access programs and brings the talk genre to another level -- not in a good way. It features interviews with celebrities -- some really are, and others are impersonators -- and what producers describe as "extreme real-life weirdos" interspersed with "deranged" man-on-the-street segments and just general chaos in the studio. Working with André is apathetic sidekick Hannibal Buress, who serves as the straight man to the hyperactive host.
Actor Seth Green ("Family Guy") and Matthew Senreich created the off-the-wall comedy hit, which is a series of pop-culture parodies using stop-motion animation of toys, action figures and dolls. The title character was an ordinary chicken until he was run down by a car and subsequently brought back to life in cyborg form by mad scientist Fritz Huhnmorder, who tortures Robot Chicken by forcing him to watch a random selection of TV shows, the sketches that make up the body of each episode. The show often features special episodes built around a single theme, including "Star Wars" and DC Comics.
Oscar-nominated actor John C. Reilly ("Chicago") portrays naive and socially awkward Dr. Steve Brule in this Adult Swim series that sees the doctor examining various parts of everyday life. As he discusses such ordinary topics as boats, animals and money, Brule reveals information about his personal life, some of which is shocking and disturbing. Brule is joined throughout the series by recurring characters, who offer the likes of movie reviews and news updates.
Adult Swim is never afraid to go beyond the boundaries of what most people consider good taste, so the not-necessarily-PC premise of this show shouldn't come as a shock to anyone. "Black Jesus" spotlights Jesus living in modern-day Compton, Calif., trying to spread love and kindness throughout his neighborhood on a daily basis. Mostly assisting in his mission is a small-but-loyal group of downtrodden followers. The live-action series was created by Aaron McGruder, who previously brought the animated favorite "The Boondocks" to Adult Swim.
Andy Samberg ("Brooklyn Nine-Nine"), Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone of the Emmy-winning and Grammy-nominated comedy trio called The Lonely Island serve as executive producers of this fearless and original late-night sketch comedy show alongside Paul Scheer of "The League." Comics Nicole Byer, Jessica McKenna and Alison Rich are the stars of the program, which is a compilation of comedy shorts and in-studio segments that are filmed in front of an audience at the Alexandria Hotel in Los Angeles.
This series provides a platform for the many members of the comedic Wayans family. Popular recurring sketches include Homey D. Clown, the Homeboy Shopping Network, Men on Film and Great Moments in Black History.
This animated sketch-comedy series -- which Disney XD describes as "delightfully silly, weird and frenetic" -- features comedy sketches and quirky songs centered around the show's core of characters -- Dog, Moon, Ice Cream, Candy, Diamond and Plant. The voice cast features comics with a strong resume in the stand-up comedy industry, including Kyle Kinane and Baron Vaughn. The series is the first collaboration between animation giants Warner Bros. Animation and Disney XD.
A trio of fast-food items works to solve mysteries in an edgy adult cartoon. The brains of the group is Frylock, a floating box of fries, but Master Shake does a lot of the talking, most of it aimed at making life miserable for Meatwad, a sweet-natured ball of meat. Recurring characters include neighbor Carl, supercilious Mooninites (lunar creatures) Ignigknot and Err, and mad scientists Dr. Weird and Steve.
Executive produced by Bob Odenkirk ("Breaking Bad") and Ben Stiller, "The Birthday Boys" is a scripted original sketch show starring the Los Angeles comedy group of the same name. The Birthday Boys are Jefferson Dutton, Dave Ferguson, Mike Hanford, Tim Kalpakis, Matt Kowalick, Mike Mitchell and Chris VanArtsdalen, whose collective credits include "Parks and Recreation," "The Office," "Portlandia," "Funny or Die," "Comedy Bang! Bang!" and "Conan." Episodes combine a mix of stand-alone and multiact sketches that twist real-life situations and cultural touchstones, taking a page from absurd yet intelligent classic sketch shows "Monty Python," "Kids in the Hall" and Odenkirk's "Mr. Show With Bob and David."
