Overview
The Los Angeles Times called it "Rip Roaring Hilarious." Entertainment Weekly called it "SCTV with Better Hair." The Fox Network called to cancel the show after twelve episodes.

Now for the first time on DVD you can see all twelve episodes of the Emmy® Award winning The Ben Stiller Show as well as an originally unaired thirteenth episode AND nearly an hour of unaired sketches, outtakes and rare, behind-the-scenes footage with commentaries by the entire cast and writing staff.

So sit back and watch as Ben Stiller, Janeane Garofalo, Andy Dick and Bob Odenkirk lead an inspired array of sketches and deft parodies with guest stars Sarah Jessica Parker, Dennis Miller, Flea, Garry Shandling, Susan Anton, and many, many more.

The Ben Stiller Show – you will wish it had survived an entire season.
