Finally, The Dana Carvey Show is coming to DVD - VIDEO

Dana Carvey ShowSometimes it takes a few years to realize how funny a show was. I think that's what happened with The Dana Carvey Show.

It was on ABC for a very short time back in 1996, and even though a lot of people found it funny, a lot more people found it odd. Now the show is finally coming to DVD. Shout! Factory is releasing a two-DVD set on May 12 that will not only have all of the episodes uncut, the set will also include a bonus episode of the show that never aired.

I often compare this show to The Ben Stiller Show, and though I loved both shows, I think The Dana Carvey Show was tighter and put their ideas across in a better way. Not too many sketches from this show went on and on to ruin the joke. But that would be a good DVD to have: the best moments from each!

After the jump, a little piece of what you'll see on the DVDs (yup, that's Steve Carell and Stephen Colbert). AOL Video has more episodes.

This would be a perfect addition to Netflix Watch Instantly. I'd love to check out this show and remember when Dana Carvey was funny.

They had a couple more great names.
+ Steve Carell
+ Robert Carlock (co-showrunner on 30 Rock)
+ Dana Carvey
+ Louis C.K.
+ Stephen Colbert
+ Jon Glaser (Conan/SNL writer, creator/star of "Delocated"
+ Charlie Kaufman
+ Robert Smigel
+ Dino Stamatopoulos (Mr. Show, SNL, Conan, Moral Orel, etc)
+ Michael Stoyanov (Mr. Show, frickin' Tony on "Blossom")
+ Dave Chappelle

This show may have had the best writing staff since Sid Caesar's "Your Show of Shows".
