Sports Monster

Sports Monster was a television program that aired on The Comedy Channel in 1990 and 1991.[1][2] The program was a spoof version of a cable sports show, based on shows such as ESPN's SportsCenter. The show starred Nick Bakay, Joe Bolster, and Jon Hayman as the program's announcers. Although Bakay, Bolster and Hayman were identified on the program by their own names, each adopted a fictional persona—Bakay as a long-time sports broadcaster, Bolster as a former Major League Baseball star, and Hayman as a journeyman baseball player.

This show was one of the first attempts at original programming on Comedy Central, at the time in its first broadcasting season.
