This half-hour sketch comedy series featured Rob Gfroerer, Paul Greenberg, Nick McKinney, and Vito Viscomi. They formed their comedy group in 1984 at Ryerson University in Toronto. Inspired by the Kids in the Hall and by the growth of improvisational comedy, Gfroerer, Greenberg and Viscomi formed the team and later added McKinney, whom they met at a party. They performed regularly in clubs before being discovered by Lorne Michaels, whose Broadway Video Company co-produced the series with CBC.
Only 6 episodes of the show were broadcast. Thirteen shows were written for a second, extended run, but were never produced by CBC or Broadway Video.
