Watch the (NSFW) Trailer for an Unaired 2011 Adult Swim Pilot Starring Jay Johnston and Rich Fulcher

Back in 2011, Mr. Show writer Eric Von Hoffman created an Adult Swim pilot starring Jay Johnston and Rich Fulher called Guy Suave: Homicidal Spy, and while the pilot never went to series, thanks to Hoffman we can finally get a peek of what might have been. Here’s what Hoffman told us about how the Guy Suave pilot came about:

This is a pilot for a spy show Jay and I wanted to do about a secret agent who is mentally & emotionally unhinged – kind of Taxi Driver meets Dr. No. There was a lot of filthy language involved, like almost porn movie level (because Guy Suave spoke in single entendres instead of the traditional double entendres of most secret agents), which naturally had to be bleeped, and so the full impact was lessened a bit. Adult Swim were awesome throughout though, giving us total freedom.

A weird coincidence: Rich actually played Guy Suave in the original stage version many years earlier (which I wrote/directed) at the Annoyance Theatre in Chicago, 1995. During casting for the pilot, Adult Swim out of nowhere suggested Rich for the villain, never knowing anything about the Annoyance version. WEIRD.

Watch the “unofficial trailer” for the Guy Suave: Homicidal Spy pilot above, and there are tons of other great clips on Hoffman’s YouTube page including old improv scenes featuring Bob Odenkirk:
