Cheers is the best sitcom of all time. That’s why Brian McGovern created Cheers The Show: The Show.
CTS:TS is a bunch of new Cheers scenes written and performed by a bunch of funny people. Each one serving as the first scene of an imagined episode, these cold opens will be performed one after another after another. It’s a weird Groundhog Day nightmare that is also FUNNY!!!
The original cold opens vary between heartfelt homages and obscene satire. They are filled with talking mops, deadly viruses, and pretentious literary references. The only rules given to writers were that the scenes must include the characters of Cheers and take place in the bar.
It’s a celebration of one of the most classic of classic sitcoms while also being a total dismantling of the format itself. And did we mention it’s FUNNY!?!?!
