Throwback Thursday-Talk Soup (1991-2002)

Satire is to my mind, one of the finest forms of comedy.

Talk Soup (1991-2002) perfected the art of satire. Airing on the E! network, the show had four hosts during it’s lifetime: Greg Kinnear (1991-1995), John Henson (1995-1999), Hal Sparks (1999-2000) and Aisha Tyler (2001-2002), the show satirized moments from the previous days talk shows.

As I recall, I did not get the humor initially because it was a little over my head. Then I understood the humor and I laughed. I laughed because of the ridiculousness of the clips and how self serious the shows made themselves out to be.

I recommend it.
