On Air


SEATTLE, WA – Almost Live!, the award winning, locally produced sketch comedy show is returning for one night to pay tribute to its 15-year history.

The Almost Live! Reunion Special airing at 8 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 12, will include classic characters from the past, as well as new sketches focusing on events that have affected Seattle since the show went off the air in 1999, including WTO and this year’s controversial gubernatorial race.

On hand for the special will be the core cast from the final 10 years, including John Keister, Pat Cashman, Tracey Conway, Nancy Guppy, Bob Nelson, Bill Stainton, Steve Wilson, Joel McHale and Ed Wyatt.

It's the first time the cast has been together in more than six years. The show will also feature a special guest appearance from Bill Nye the Science Guy. Bill will be revisiting the liquid nitrogen experiment that launched his career on Almost Live! as the Science Guy. Expect the experiment to be bigger, wetter and potentially more hazardous.

During its 15 years of production, Almost Live! won well over 100 Emmy awards for writing, producing, acting and directing. Its unique blend of taped segments and live sketches earned the program the prestigious International Iris Award for Best Local Entertainment Program 11 times.

Almost Live! was No. 1 in its time slot for 10 straight years. It now continues to be No. 1 in its time slot in repeats, Saturdays at 1 a.m. following Saturday Night Live.
