Well what can we say. MadTV isn’t really that funny, in fact it wouldn’t be a stretch to say it’s just about the bottom of the Sketch Comedy totem pole. And yet, every now and again the fine folks manage to make something moderately humorous.
One of the funniest things we’ve ever seen was a sketch they did on the outtakes from the Wizard of Oz DVD. It featured a runaway slave who has sex with Dorothy in the bushes while flying monkey’s attack the rest of the gang. Yeah, it was that offensive and that funny. So we just saw a second skit that was okay. This one makes fun of both Steve Jobs and the War in Iraq. No easy feat.
UPDATE! We were able to track down that Wizard of Oz sketch.? Even though there were no flying monkies, it’s still as funny today as it was four years ago.? Best lines in the sketch comes courtesy of the Scarecrow.? Enjoy!
