Too Funny to Fail, the new documentary about the rise and flop of The Dana Carvey Show in 1996 is now available at Hulu. (David reviews it, here.) Aside from the story of Carvey’s high-wire alt-comedy act on prime-time TV for ABC, Too Funny to Fail also recounts the recruitment of a now-astonishing all-star team of players including Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell and head writers Louis C.K. and Robert Smigel. (Smigel is reknown for the Triumph the Insult Comic Dog act.) Unknowns when they were cast, Colbert and Carell here do the infamous “Waiters Who Are Nauseated by Food,” which made their names among producers and helped launch their careers after Carvey’s show was cancelled after seven episodes.
