The 10 Funniest Skits from "The State"

The 10 Funniest Skits from "The State"

thestate
It's here, it's here, it's finally here! Fourteen years after its tragic demise, sketch troupe The State finally convinced MTV to release the DVD collection of their show, which drops tomorrow. If you were lucky enough to watch it when it was on, you know it was the most innovative comedy of its time, influencing everything from Human Giant to Lonely Island to...well, maybe not Chappelle's Show, but you get the idea.

The show birthed an insane number of comedy VIPs in screenwriting, acting, and directing, and nearly all of its members continue to work with each other on various projects; Reno 911!, cult comedy classic Wet Hot American Summer, and the new Comedy Central show Michael & Michael Have Issues (premiering this Wednesday) are but three. After the jump, watch The State's 10 Best Skits and check out a (now updated) chart we ran in our February/March 2008 issue that details the cast's interlocking post-State collaborations...
