[[folder:Live Comedy]]
* The CutawayGag is often seen in long-form {{Improv}} comedy shows. Sometimes when two players are doing a scene, a third player will tag one of them out and do a short scene with the other player about something that had just been mentioned, after which the player who was tagged out tags back in and resumes the original scene.

* In the TV version of the ''WesternAnimation/VeggieTales'' episode "A Snoodle's Tale", Larry asks if Jimmy ever had a dream about a bagel, and Jimmy said he dreamed of a opera-singing aardvark, which cuts to an animated sequence about that exact thing.

* The 2011 Thanksgiving special involved Kevin Swanson returning home and admitting he went [=AWOL=] from the army. Peter refers to him as a "regular Benedict Arnold Drummond". Cut to the producers hopelessly confused and looking for a tape of [[Series/DiffrentStrokes Gary Coleman]] in a Napoleon hat. After giving up, they just put in one of the [[TheWizardOfOz Cowardly Lion]] as LindsayLohan's OB/GYN.
