The hallmark of the series was that it was never afraid to go over the line when it came to people's comfort levels. The cast not only appeared in drag regularly, they often did so without any attempt to make the crossdressing the point of the skit. It was often bemoaned by Dave Foley that he looked so much better dressed as a woman... something that would form the basis of an episode of his later hit ''NewsRadio''.

The series did air in the United States but it may surprise some to know that, as shocking as the series may have been to many, it was still sometimes heavily edited for content, particularly for religious topics.

Surreal, often transgressional SketchComedy show in the vein of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' and ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus,'' two shows to which it is often compared. The show was in fact initiated and produced by ''SaturdayNightLive'' mastermind Lorne Michaels. The show is often credited with kick-starting the AlternativeComedy boom of the 90s.
