Kelsey Grammer Presents: The Sketch Show' Premieres Sunday, March 13, on FOX

[via press release from FOX]


KELSEY GRAMMER PRESENTS: THE SKETCH SHOW joins the stellar Sunday night comedy lineup beginning Sunday, March 13 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

A comedy series that combines the fast-paced entertainment of "Laugh-In" and the innovative, sardonic humor of "Monty Python's Flying Circus," KELSEY GRAMMER PRESENTS: THE SKETCH SHOW is packed with laughs every minute � literally! The series' signature quick-fire puns, gags and sketches will showcase the comedic talents of five distinctive performers: Kaitlin Olsen, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Paul F. Tompkins, Malcolm Barrett and original UK cast member Lee Mack.

The unpredictable and swift-moving sketches sometimes last mere seconds as they deliver popular one-liners. Featuring a remarkable average of 30 vignettes per half hour, THE SKETCH SHOW is a refreshing change - irreverent, smart and silly, and never slow. Shot both on location and in front of a studio audience, it provides limitless possibilities of satire and style.

Following its critically and commercially successful second year on British TV and continued success around the world, THE SKETCH SHOW is being imported by Avalon Television Ltd., the original UK producers of the award-winning series, together with Kelsey Grammer's Grammnet Productions, Angst Productions, Baby Cow Productions and Fox 21.

Richard Allen-Turner, Jon Thoday, Dan Patterson, Henry Normal, Kelsey Grammer and Steve Stark serve as executive producers.
