Watch a vomiting alien beat up the Pope, in the weirdest E.T. parody ever

We missed this news when it was announced a while back. The complete run of Get a Life, Chris Elliott's cult comedy series, is finally coming to DVD from Shout! Factory. This show, in which Chris Elliott is an overgrown paperboy who still lives with his parents, had a writing staff that included Charlie Kaufman and Bob Odenkirk.

And it's freakin' weird — just watch the clip above, where Elliott meets Spewey the Alien, whose only method of communication consists of throwing up and throwing punches. And then he introduces Spewey to his cousin, the Pope. Whuh?

Elliott told The AV Club that the complete Get a Life would be out on DVD this fall, with tons of extras. And the AV Club linked to the above fantastic clip, as well as this sequence, where Elliott travels through time:

Chris Elliott is one of those people that call themselves comedians. I have never-ever, not once, laughed at anything he has done. This would also go for Al Franken and Buck Henry. Now don't get me wrong. If you think these guys are funny, that's fine. I am not trying to put anyone down. Every body has a different sense of humor.
