Last month, the CW turned heads with an announcement that they were resurrecting MADtv , the saucy sketch comedy series that ran on Fox for an astonishing 14 seasons before it was canceled, in It debuted on October 14, , airing on Fox at 11 p.

MADtv had a long and complicated history at Fox, which increasingly neglected the series in terms of both marketing and budget, and it never escaped the shadow of SNL. Here, then, is a brief look back at the cult sketch show that died but refused to stay dead.

I guess [William] Gaines, who founded Mad , hated television — just despised it — and would never sell the rights. But, like, the second he died, EC Comics was out trying to sell the rights. Debra Wilson original cast member, — : There were five auditions — three in New York and two in L. I was told when I had booked it that I was the first one hired for the show. They want to see five of your characters or five minutes of your best stuff.

But we also wanted people the audience would like to have dinner with. Bahr: We shot the pilot and Fox really loved it, immediately giving us an order for 12 episodes. About halfway through those 12, they picked us up for the rest of the season.

We had 12 writers in the beginning — we tried to get as many Ben Stiller Show writers as we could, and young comics. Patton Oswalt was the first writer we hired — Patton and Blaine Capatch. Poor Fax and Adam. They hired me when I was in my 20s, and I was at the height of my self-righteousness, as far as comedy and pushing the edge goes.

David Salzman was the day-to-day guy. MADtv debuted in October , airing at 11 p. From the beginning, it appealed to a diverse audience, with its version of broad, brash sketch comedy. Bahr: The magazine was an amalgam of different artists doing their own little short bits, so we wanted to utilize that same approach. We would do short sketches and, like in Mad Magazine , movie parodies. We also had animation; that first season, we did Spy vs. Spy a couple times per episode. We definitely wanted it to be edgy.

And we really worked hard to find a diverse cast of people who were great actors. Nicole Garcia casting director, — : There were executives that wanted a little more diversity and then there were some that just wanted the most talented, regardless. Our show skewed a little more urban, in a way, so they definitely wanted to have that represented.

Finding a Latino, male or female, was always something we were looking for. We always had diversity in the cast. That was very much a part of the creation. Alex Borstein cast member — : In L. Even though it was made in New York, its audiences tended to be kind of vanilla in the old days. MADtv really filled a different vacuum. Most of the fans were rainbow. Fans of Ms. Swan in particular. She fit everything.

MADtv seemed to actually serve a real purpose in the community. Sullivan : I certainly played the majority of the racists on the show [ Laughs ]. We wanted to make people look stupid. We were just setting my characters up to look like an idiot. We were doing it every week. Josh Meyers cast member —04 : The diversity of our cast allowed us to do some different stuff, certainly, but it also lent itself to the playing of stereotypes.

Just playing the stereotypical African-American, the stereotypical Asian-American. MADtv could certainly do that, and did that. Keegan-Michael Key cast member, —09 : The powers that be were not going for social commentary. I want to go home. I want to laugh my ass off. I work too hard. I just want to laugh. Then, also, there was a kind of outrageous broadness about the show that appealed to that demographic.

Borstein : MADtv always wanted to be kind of an urban, hip, pop-culture machine. There was that constant battle between going for something … not necessarily lowbrow, but more of a popular nature, and combining it with things that were weird.

It felt very Kids in the Hall or Mr. Show -ish. Politically, we hit a little harder. And we would go after Democrats as much as Republicans. Sullivan : When we did impressions, they were pretty mean. Britney Spears at one point saw me, and her bodyguard very not-so-subtly pushed me about seven feet away from her. Lea Thompson and Caroline in the City was another one.

I saw her at a charity event, and she and her daughter were not very pleased to see me. I thought that was mean, because she was just a little kid. But MADtv was not afraid to be mean. That was our goal. Will Sasso cast member, — : MADtv was a network show, so we would come across the people that we were lampooning — a lot.

I thought that my impersonation of Fred Durst was kind of shitty to Fred Durst, right? I have the research tape here of your MTV release for your album. Brilliant, super-smart sketch. But what gets all the popularity on MADtv? Coach Hines. I was a walking cartoon — a sight gag. I adored playing that character, even if none of the Coach Hines scenes are my favorite. There was really well-executed political satire on that show, but I feel like that was not what they were going for, necessarily.

They wanted to be accepted. But I understood the concept of Mad Magazine was all pop culture parodies, so they made an effort to keep it accessible and mainstream. Oswalt: In the two seasons I was there, there were some pretty brilliant sketches that would get through, despite the network fumbling it. I always said it was interesting how over at Mr. Show they had complete freedom and probably the best writers and minds in comedy and yet, every now and then, despite all of that, something shitty or hacky would get through.

Whereas, over at MADtv , every now and then something really brilliant and subversive and avant-garde would get through. Though it ran for more than episodes on the network, MADtv was never really appreciated by Fox. In response, the cast rebelled. That was during the period of all that vertical integration, where everyone wanted to own the material they were putting on the air, so we were always treated as this redheaded stepchild. They would promote the Fox-owned shows on Saturday night, and they would never promote what was gonna be on MADtv.

As long as we hit our number, and they could make those ad sales, they were okay with us. But they were always trying to develop other things at the same time. They began to cut the budget. But it was to publicize their show. It was startling how little promotion we got. The second the budget started getting cut, things just looked shittier and shittier and shittier.

Key: Very often we were going for a shock laugh. Mo Collins cast member, — : We constantly had to laugh at how poorly we were treated by the network. We were just not being able to thrive. We did well against SNL , with nothing. Wilson : We knew that we were redheaded stepchildren, which bonded the cast. We would go on press junkets in other states and act the fuck out. Sullivan : They were terrified of us, make no mistake.

Like, when Artie was being Artie. We were mean even to the other shows. One time, we were at an event with all the Fox people and one of the actresses there had a new show that was opposite Monday Night Football.

The cast of "MADtv": Where are they now?

It was a sketch comedy show inspired by Mad magazine that began in and aired on FOX. He also gained notoriety for an angry, shirtless and hilarious monologue in which he ranted about little things in life that he hates. During her time on the series, Borstein found a hit with her Ms. Since leaving in , Kilbane has appeared in various minor films, TV and video games roles.

Shane Gillis, Ms. The comedian Shane Gillis may have a future career as a racist Twitch streamer, or as vice president in the future Joe Rogan administration, but at least one job will remain out of his reach forevermore: Saturday Night Live cast member, after his unceremonious shitcanning on Monday afternoon.

Sign In. MADtv — Hide Spoilers. This show was very funny and had a lot of brilliant sketches. The best cast was from Unfortunately, Nicole Sullivan and Will Sasso left the show and it went down. Every Saturday I looked forward to seeing a new episode, and now it's not that big of a deal anymore. It's not as funny and creative as it used to be. But I would recommend seasons any time.
