Before Tobias Funke and Saul Goodman, there was just David Cross and Bob Odenkirk, and they were the team behind “Mr. Show,” the excellent, short-lived sketch comedy show on HBO. Now, two decades after the first season aired, the duo are back, this time on Netflix, with a new show, “W/ Bob & David,” and it looks like they haven’t missed a step.
Featuring faces both old (Jay Johnston) and new (Keegan-Michael Key), it looks and feels just like “Mr. Show,” though you can actually see the live audience this time around. Even their distinct brand of humor seems to come back fully intact, and it feels like fans of the original series will be picking up right where they left off. Meanwhile, newcomers will get a sense of what comedy enthusiasts have been quoting to each other for years.
“W/ Bob & David” arrives on Netflix on November 13th. Watch below.
