Paul Scheer's Excellent Arsenio Hall Homage

talk showmanship

A tribute almost 20 years in the making.

Sep 10, 2013 | 02:35 PM

"The Arsenio Hall Show" returns tonight for the first time since the original talk show went off the air in 1994, and nobody is more excited than comedian Paul Scheer. The "NTSF:SD:SUV::" creator and actor on "The League" has been producing video parodies of the original, which he dubs "The ArScheerio Paul Show." In these verbatim recreations of great "Arsenio Hall" moments, a panoply of comedians play celebrity guests from past shows—picture Rob Huebel as The Ultimate Warrior and Jordan Peele goofing around as Tupac Shakur.

Paul has already spent a few months faithfully acting out or improvising riffs on segments from these classic shows, and tonight his unapologetic fandom will come to a head.
