The Not Inappropriate Show is a comedy show for kids, yet it's nothing like a comedy shows for kids. That's because the sketches weren't written specifically for kids. As show producer Naomi Odenkirk — wife of living comedy near-legend Bob (Mr. Show, tons more) — puts it, “We have kids who love good comedy. And there is nothing like this ever happening. Bob and I cherry-picked these great sketches that happen to be 'not inappropriate' for a young audience.” You get “The Lodge” from the Groundlings; “Animal Stars,” about what the trained animals at theme parks really think; the Birthday Boys teaching chemistry on roller blades; Kate Micucci and her ukulele; plus Mr. Odenkirk as “the ultimate Washington outsider.” Plus: videos by Bob and Stephanie Courtney “about a woman whose family has been driven away by a piece of cheese she refuses to throw away” and the Birthday Boys' Dog-Town and Z-Boys-inspired “Pool Jumpers.” And the whole show winds up in plenty of time for you to tuck the kids away and get on with your decadent New Year's Eve plans. For ages 8 and up.
