The Edge is an American sketch comedy television series created by David Mirkin which ran on the Fox Network from 1992 to 1993.


The series featured an ensemble cast headed by comedienne Julie Brown. Other cast members included Tom Kenny, Jennifer Aniston, Wayne Knight and Carol Rosenthal. Other regulars of the series included James Stephens III, Jill Talley, Rick Overton, Paul Feig, and Alan Ruck.

The show featured sketches that would revolve around original characters such as gun-toting All-American family and a cowboy known as Cracklin' Crotch. But the series would also skewer pop culture. One notable episode spoofed TV sweeps by promising ratings-grabbing events such as a birth, a wedding and a death.

The series also featured a running gag in which the entire cast would get killed off in various ways in each episode before the first commercial break. One episode featured the cast getting hit by a bus; another had the set falling apart and crushing them; others involved explosions, decapitations, immolation, hangings, and impalement by arrows; one episode had the troupe being sucked into a vortex. In addition to sketches, Bill Plympton cartoons were used as bumpers between the sketches.

The series was canceled after 18 episodes.
