American Body Shop is an improvised comedy show on Comedy Central that revolves around a dysfunctional body shop in suburban Phoenix, Arizona and the accident-prone crew that works there.

The show came to Comedy Central after its creator, Sam Greene, shot the pilot on his own, put it on a DVD and mailed it to "the networks".[1]

After only one season, the show was canceled.
