Read full description of the books:
Ms. Naomi Odenkirk put together a great tome about what is, in my opinion, the funniest sketch comedy show ever made save Monty Python. In fact, Mr. Show's sensibilities and framework are based on the original Monty Python TV episodes, including the makeshift sets where the walls jiggle if the cast jumps around too much.
How do I know this?
Because I own a copy of "Mr. Show - What Happened", which tells the four season story of Mr. Show from the viewpoint of the entire cast (which includes David Cross of "Arrested Development", Jack Black, Mary Lynn Raksjub of "24", Paul F. Tompkins, Tom Kenny and Jill Talley of "Spongebob Squarepants" among many others). The book follows the story of the program, from its start in the back room of a dance club ("a coke addict's disco dream", according to David Cross) where the show began to the final fourth season, where the writing and production got so good and so tight. However, HBO put the final nail in the coffin by moving the show's timeslot - from Friday at midnight to Monday at midnight.
Personality conflicts, hard work, endless writing sessions, drugs, rock and roll, recording a musical parody of Jesus Christ Superstar ("Jeepers Creepers Semistar") in a hot, unairconditioned garage studio, being the vehicle through which the comedy musical duo Tenacious D began - it's all there.
I would highly recommend this book to fans of the show. Those who've never seen it shouldn't bother - they should buy at least season three and four, watch the whole DVD set, and then buy the book.
