The State, Season 1TV-14Closed Captioning

Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.


The State was the coolest sketch comedy show on TV in the early 1990's, and due to overwhelming demand, it's being released from the MTV vault and introduced to the digital age. Season 1 of The State exhibits the show's humble beginnings, and the birth of some of its most popular characters: groove-happy hipsters LeVon and Barry (Michael Ian Black and Thomas Lennon), grungy teen-malcontent Doug (Michael Showalter), and the guy who comes in and says his catch phrase over and over again, Louie (Ken Marino)! These actors and the rest of the eleven member cast -- Kevin Allison (Orange Quarters, Best Week Ever), Ben Garant (Reno 911!, Herbie: Fully Loaded), Todd Holoubek (You Wrote It, You Watch It), Michael Patrick Jann (Drop Dead Gorgeous), Kerri Kenney (Reno 911!, Viva Variety), Joe Lo Truglio (Hitch), and David Wain (Stella, Wet Hot American Summer) -- also doubled as the writing team and crew during the cult classic's five-episode first season. The comedy is old school but the writing is still as fresh as ever and now you can take it wherever you go, "aww yeah, baby!"

One of the best and funniest shows ever. Buy this season so more will be released!!!


I have been waiting years for them to release The State on DVD,but this will be just fine to hold me over until they do.I grew up on The State.This smart and hilarious show pretty much spawned my interest in comedy and led me to start my own public access comedy show.I love the diverse cast,each has thier own niche in the show.A prison where the guard politely asks the prisoners to not walk out the open gate while he naps...a mailman who delivers only tacos because he can't fit both the mail and tacos in his bag...there are so many classic sketches.If you have even the slightest interest in sketch comedy,you have to download The State and see these guys at work.Bring on Season 2!

Wet Hot American Summer, Reno 911, Stella or Michael Ian Black fan?

Then check this out! This is the comedy troup where those comic geniuses came from. I can't say enough good things about this show. More seasons, please!!
