A still of the series.

Status: Partially Found

Dot Comedy was a television sitcom broadcasted on ABC in 2000. Created by Carrie Gerlach the show would feature several bits of humor and was mainly about bringing internet humor to a TV audience in an era where broadband was still new. Dot Comedy was canceled after airing one episode with four episodes never airing. The concept of using internet humor for a TV audience would later be used in shows like Tosh.0 and Web Soup.

The Series

The show was hosted by Randy Sklar and Jason Sklar, who would guide viewers watching the show to another segment.

The most popular clip of this episode was of Katie Puckrik (American broadcaster and newspaper columnist) traveling to a computer expo to see the creations that other people have made to know if consumers would buy them or not. One was of a desktop mirror that can be clipped to the side of the screen, letting you know if your boss would come by to see what you're doing. Another one was of a computer keyboard that could also be used as a back massager. The third and final creation consisted of a mouse that can also be used as deodorant[1]. Most of the humor and clips used for this show seem to take the humor of the internet and most of the time make it look like a joke to them.

Status

The series only aired 5 episodes and only 1 was found and put on YouTube, while the other 4 remain lost. The running time for every episode consists of 30 minutes.
