We’re Not Worthy

The ’90s were the most fertile time for sketch comedy on North American TV. Shows like In Living Color changed the way TV looked forever, and Mr. Show with Bob and David took the sketch form and nearly perfected it. Every other sketch show of the era created some of the world’s biggest stars; the decade’s impact on comedy is undeniable. We’re Not Worthy is an in-depth history of ’90s TV sketch comedy, featuring the dozen or so heavy-hitters of the decade like Kids in the Hall, The State, and Upright Citizens Brigade. It also covers the other several dozen that didn’t last as long, but still gave us some of our biggest film and TV stars.

With a foreword by The State‘s David Wain, and 150 interviews with people like Carol Burnett, Mike Myers, The State’s Kerri Kenney-Silver, Bob Odenkirk, Tommy Davidson, Bruce McCulloch, Marsha Warfield, Kevin Nealon, Julie Brown, Adam McKay, Penelope Spheeris and Robert Smigel, We’re Not Worthy is the definitive history of ’90s sketch comedy from the people who were there. You can order today at Amazon and many other places (see below), and find it in stores at Barnes & Noble and others. The book was released on September 12, 2023, from 1984 Publishing.
