What it's about

Travel through time via music and comedy drawn from the forty-year library of the legendary, but fictional, musical variety show called “Sherman's Showcase.”

The take

Reminding us that there's so much more to American sketch comedy than Saturday Night Live, Sherman's Showcase transports us into a bizarre variety show run by an egomaniacal host, where all the laws of space and time seem to be broken. It's all ultimately very silly, but the jokes that this mock-variety series pulls out of nowhere are so funny because of how unexpected they are—lampooning every niche of the entertainment industry with pure confidence in every line. But even if you don't get the humor here, Sherman's Showcase remains a delight to watch just because of the imagination poured into the performances. There are dancers aplenty and novelty songs done in countless styles that stand strong on their own as great music.
