Finally! Buried by the BBC in the post Newsnight graveyard slot many years ago, this remains one of the great underappreciated gems of American TV comedy. Shamelessly ripped off -to much lesser comedy effect - by Channel 4's Sean's Show (even down to the deliberately witless theme song), Shandling hilariously broke down the fourth wall between audience and perfomer. 'Hey, none of you guys touch my stuff.' he warns the audience as he prepares to leave the set. The later 'Larry Saunders Show' may be more celebrated but for sheer innovation and freewheeling insanity this is the real deal.
