Plenty of comedians get their start on TV shows like Saturday Night Live and MADTv, but it's not quite as often that they go on to get their own shows. In the case of these ten though, their solo efforts gave us some of the best comedy shows of all time.
The Amanda Show was a surprisingly brilliant sketch comedy show for kids on Nickelodeon, and it was one of the reasons we were all convinced Amanda Bynes was gonna be the next big thing.
After a successful run on In Living Color, Foxx got his own sketch comedy show with plenty of great skits of its own. He was just as ridiculous here as he always was.
Before he seemed to be putting out at least two or three movies a year, Ben Stiller was still best-known as a sketch comedian, and The Ben Stiller show was some of his absolute best work to date. it was a massive inspiration on plenty of modern shows.
Best-known as Bill S. Presto Esq. from the Bill and Ted franchise, Winter hosted and often starred in MTV's The Idiot Box from 1990 to 1991. It was weird, uncouth, and often felt like a precursor to the shows that would get big on networks on Adult Swim. We loved it.
