The Remains of The Real UHF

The Real UHF was created in August of 2009 as a spiritual successor to Weird Al Yankovic’s 1989 comedy cult classic, UHF. The website consisted of three video series: The Dr. Demento Show, The Count Smokula Show, and All Alone with Neil Hamburger. Dr. Demento’s show featured performances by several guest stars, including the bands The Fuxedos and Throwing Toasters and alternative “fly” comedian Francois Fly, as well as bizarre music videos by Chonk and Dragon Boy Suede. The Count Smokula Show was a sitcom where Count Smokula would fail at getting laid and chat with his puppet grandfather, Vlad the Inhaler. All Alone with Neil Hamburger mainly consisted of footage from Neil Hamburger’s stand up performances. Six episodes of these three shows were posted on The Real UHF’s Ning channel.

After 11 months of inactivity, The Real UHF apologized for the unexpected hiatus and promised to air two previously unseen Count Smokula episodes featuring guest performances by George Clinton and Devo. Unfortunately, the Devo episode remains unseen.

For nearly three years, nearly all of the videos which originally appeared on The Real UHF have been removed from the website or privatized, but many are scattered around YouTube or Vimeo. Here I have tried my best to preserve as many of the videos from The Real UHF as I could find.
