Off-beatniks, take note: MTV’s Bill Clinton-era sketch show, The State, will finally see a much-awaited surfacing on DVD. Beginning on July 14, the French won’t be the only ones with a revolution to celebrate. (Bastile Day, anyone?)

The quirky, catch-phrase producing sketch show produced more than uproarious laughs and highly memorable satire – it also served as the launching pad for the careers of Michael Showalter, Michael Ian Black, David Wain, Kerri Kenney-Silver, Thomas Lennon, and others.
