Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Described as an avant-garde British comedian, Sean Hughes was both writer and star of this offbeat weekly TV series. Poking savage fun at the standard sitcom and nighttime-serial formats, Sean's Show offered scattershot satirical jibes at virtually every living member of the TV industry. One of the series' running gags was having its recurring characters killed off at regular intervals, only to return as their "identical twins." Highly original and wildly irreverent in concept and execution, Sean's Show was seen over Britain's Channel 4 beginning in 1992, ultimately toting up 13 half-hour episodes over a two-year period. The property was briefly revived under the same title in 1996.
