Mr. Show: The Audition

I love this sketch, from Mr. Show. There are few examples of what I would call “meta humour”, but this is a brilliant example of it.

Personally, if I had been a writer for Mr. Show, I probably wouldn’t have written a sketch like this; I would have assumed that it wouldn’t “work”. But seeing it on the screen, I love it. I’m glad the writers took a chance, and it paid off.
