"Grab a beer and drop your pants, send your wife and kids to France," made up the opening line to The Man Show, Comedy Central's raucous celebration of the basest qualities of men, including but not limited to lighting farts, ogling women, drinking beer, and watching porn. The Man Show's most successful years featured comic Jimmy Kimmel and his partner in crime, fellow comedian Adam Carolla. The two men set out to be as offensive as humanly possible, and despite succeeding much of the time, managed to distill the rampant chauvinism with a constant stream of self-effacing humor. The Man Show also became known for its Juggies -- women whose "jugs" and their subsequent bouncing ability provided a weekly source of amusement at the end of each show when they would jump on trampolines for an eager studio audience. When Carolla and Kimmel left to pursue other opportunities, Comedy Central gave The Man Show another year and replaced the hosts with comedians Doug Stanhope and Joe Rogan in 2003. Unfortunately for them, they were never able to match the chemistry of their predecessors, and The Man Show was canceled in May of 2004.
