"The Sweet Life" on HBO's Comedy Channel was a very hip and hysterically funny sketch/talk show starring singer Rachel Sweet. So few homes had cable in '89 and '90 -- and even the houses with cable didn't usually carry the Comedy Channel(now known as Comedy Central) -- but if "The Sweet Life" had been seen by more people, I know it would have had a HUGE following. Rachel was a fantastic, downtown-hip host and the sketches were just fantastically funny! Jon Stewart, who was a writer on the show, was often featured in the sketches. Even the guests on "The Sweet Life" were before-their-time -- like Queen Latifah, Crowded House, Colin Quinn, Paul Reiser, Sandra Bernhart, Nick Bakay, etc. My friends and I watched "The Sweet Life" every night and it was the main topic of conversation the next morning! Loved, loved this show!
