Didn't think you'd see a a D.A.R.E. sketch after 1999, did ya? Same. Also, same. Here's the thing: I clicked this one, sent to me by the fine folks at Stevedore Comedy and, holy hell, it's quite good. It's also eye opening as a reminder that no premise is inherently hackneyed. If placed in the hands of capable and brave comedians, even the thing you thought you'd seen a million times could take on entirely new life.

Before Reggie Watts killed it on Conan last night, Harrison Ford showed up in a state that can only be described as being fucked out of his mind.
