10 Most Outrageous 'Mr. Show' Sketches (Video)

'Mr. Show'

Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, who co-fronted the fondly remembered HBO series, are reuniting on Netflix for 'With Bob and David.'

This was a big week for Mr. Show fans.

David Cross and Bob Odenkirk, who starred on the cult-favorite HBO sketch series from 1995 to 1998, are teaming up with Netflix for With Bob and David. Their latest sketch project, featuring all-new characters, will consist of four half-hour episodes and an hourlong making-of special. 

To celebrate the news, here are 10 memorable Mr. Show sketches, including a very odd job interview, a precariously placed thimble collection and Jack Black playing a singing-and-dancing devil.

This Jesus Christ Superstar send-up features Jack Black as a popular figure who loves video game golf and doesn't make the most inspiring speeches in the world.

Ronnie Dobbs, a parody of a Cops criminal, is one of Mr. Show's signature characters, having been featured in the 2003 film Run Ronnie Run. "Y'all are brutalizing me," Ronnie belts out, proving he has a lovely singing voice.

Third Wheel Legend

A highlight of the sketch involves Cross mingling with the audience. Also, please refrain from using the word "honeymoon."
