Discover The Fairsley Difference!

    Hell yeah, Mr. Show! Back in high school, my friends and I taped every single Mr. Show, then had a Mr. Show marathon. My favorite sketch is the roller coaster that kills everyone, but then again, I love basically every sketch. Remember Ronny Dobbs!
    Those were the days people, those were the party daayyyyssss

    The local ford dealership, Don Seelye, is using Obama’s catchphrase “Yes We Can” for their latest TV ad. I wish I had video capture set up.

    Also, is it sad that Fairsley still seems like a better option than what we have today?

    Easily one of the best comedy shows ever.

    Absolutely the best sketch comedy show of all time.

    “Paul, will you tell everybody what you said to me?”

    “Please don’t kill me!”

    “Awww! You see? This is why I do this. For the kids!”
