Synopsis

It had all the makings of a huge television success: a white-hot comic at the helm, a coveted primetime slot, and a pantheon of future comedy legends in the cast and crew.

So why did The Dana Carvey Show - with a writer’s room and cast including then unknowns Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Louis C.K., Robert Smigel, Charlie Kaufman, and more - crash and burn so spectacularly?

Too Funny To Fail: The Life And Death Of The Dana Carvey Show tells the hilarious true story of a crew of genius misfits who set out to make comedy history... and succeeded in a way they never intended.
