Description

Comedy Chimp Show live v2

The Comedy Chimp Show live from Eggman's lair.

The Comedy Chimp Show is a late night talk show named after Comedy Chimp,[1][2][3] which has apparently been on air for at least twenty years. The show focuses on the host talking with various guest stars and/or discussing local news while telling and performing various jokes and sketches which can be anything from ape-based puns to insults at prominent figures.[1][4][5] While Knuckles the Echidna worked as the host, the show focused more on slapstick comedy, but went back to its roots when Comedy Chimp returned.[5]

Season one

Comedy Chimp Show

Comedy Chimp on his show's performance stage.

During the events leading up to Sonic's trial against Dr. Eggman, Comedy Chimp would make jokes about Sonic on his show which incriminated Sonic for the case.[2] In a special edition of the Comedy Chimp Show, live from Dr. Eggman's lair at noon, Comedy Chimp did an interview on his guest, Dr. Eggman, about his success with his tomato sauce. During the show, Eggman revealed his plans to conquer the Village with his robotic sauce cans and took control of the Comedy Chimp Show to present his own brand of entertainment until Team Sonic stopped him.[3]

While the Comedy Chimp Show covered Knuckles' rise to fame, Comedy Chimp had to take a leave of absence and had Knuckles cover him. Though Knuckles struggled, his tomfoolery on the show was a hit. The network thus made Knuckles the new host and took the show in a new direction. As Eggman attacked the show though, orchestrated by Comedy Chimp to regain his job, Knuckles quit to rejoin Team Sonic. Comedy Chimp then retook his job, and, as a part of an agreement, allowed Eggman Industries to sponsor the show for the time being.[5] Continuing on as normal, the Comedy Chimp Show would later cover Soar the Eagle and his new book, Counter Productive, inspiring a certain viewer.[6]

Season two

Tommy Thunder on the Comedy Chimp Show.

Movie actor Tommy Thunder eventually made a new appearance on the Comedy Chimp Show where he and Comedy Chimp elaborated on Tommy's "capture" of the Weasel Bandits. During the show though, Tommy made the mistake of calling Eggman out on TV.[7] The Comedy Chimp Show would later make light of the Unnamed Village's diminishing water supply by telling humorous jokes about it.[8]

The Comedy Chimp Show, from Sonic Boom #5.

When Dr. Eggman held his Eggtoberfest to buy the villagers' trust, the Comedy Chimp Show would make fun of the doctor's obvious attempt with Comedy Chimp at the helm, inadvertently provoking Eggman into attacking the villagers.[4] The show later hired Kyle the Gorilla for its new "Slapstick Gorilla" sketches, where Kyle's natural clumsiness proved a hit with the audience.[9]
