{"title":"It's Garry Shandling's Show","dateDebut":"1986","dateEnd":"1990","description":"It's Garry Shandling's Show is an American sitcom which was initially broadcast on Showtime from 1986 to 1990. It was created by Garry Shandling and Alan Zweibel. The show is notable for its frequent use of breaking the fourth wall to allow characters to speak directly to the audience.\n\nThe 30-minute series stars Garry Shandling as, more or less, himself: a neurotic, somewhat self-obsessed stand-up comedian, who just happens to be aware he is a TV sitcom character. Garry spends just as much time interacting with the studio audience as he does the regular cast members, offering up opening monologues and show-closing summations of the episode's events (much like George Burns on The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show). On Garry's show, however, all the supporting characters know they are on a TV show, not just Garry; and the studio audience is often in the storyline.","leadImageMedUrl":"https:\/\/media.retrojunk.com\/file\/5bc4bfa87530877964afc546276c03cb9e0d05cc7eefda771e6cf0565e614631ce173524428649\/image\/bGsHbQHH849OUDqWjUyF8.png_md.png"}
