When you're feeling attention-span-challenged and humor-hungry, sketch comedy DVDs are the perfect remedy. The disc format makes it easy to pick the short parody you seek and click to the exact spot to watch -- then learn what's behind the humor through interviews and commentary. Recent DVD releases showcase not only Comedy Central's current hit Chappelle's Show, but also such enduring perennials as Saturday Night Live, The Kids in the Hall and The Ben Stiller Show. Chappelle's Show (Comedy Central, 12 episodes on 2 discs, $27 list price)

Hard to believe anyone could make a movie around two guys bopping their heads to a big beat. But that's exactly what "A Night at the Roxbury" boils down to, as Chris Kattan and Will Ferrell transfer their hopelessly vapid Butabi brothers from "Saturday Night Live" to the big screen. And, in the biggest surprise of all, the movie is a lot better than it has any right to be. Kattan and Ferrell are Doug and Steve Butabi, whose collective dream in life is simple: They want to dance the night away, preferably at L.A.'s hottest club, the Roxbury.

THE WORLD according to Wayne is divided into three parts: Babes, Babes and more Babes. In fact, where some men curse the darkness and say, "Why?," Wayne lights a candle and says, "More babes, please."Wayne Campbell, of course, is Aurora, Illinois' prime metalhead and cable access TV unstar. You may call him crude, rude, loud and lewd, but at least he was educated on the classics -- "Alice Cooper," "Motley Crue" -- before moving into the avant-garde -- "Anthrax," "MegaDeth" and "Headlice." (OK, I made up that last one.)

PHILADELPHIA --Everyone seems to be taking a ticket to ride on the new round of Beatlemania. In September, the three surviving Beatles re-released the movie "Yellow Submarine" and a new accompanying CD. A few months later, Paul McCartney played a concert at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, the site of the Beatles' early rise to fame. During the summer, the Beatles provided "Help!" (the movie) to be part of a Beatles movie collection on DVD. Paul's forthcoming album will include "Free Now," which was released to British radio stations recently, includes outtakes from the Beatles' recording sessions in the late 1960s.

With everyone from the TV-awards circuit to Entertainment Weekly declaring Tina Fey the new queen of comedy, the producers of Baby Mama (including Saturday Night Live's Lorne Michaels) have treated her first star vehicle as a coronation. I love Tina Fey (who doesn't?), but you can start the crowning without me. Playing a variation on the nice, sassy, confused single career-woman that she portrays on 30 Rock, Fey inhabits what should be her comfort zone as Kate Holbrook, a development vice president for a Whole Foods-like company (the wittily titled Real Earth)

Pssst -- hey buddy! You interested in front-row seats for Springsteen?It sounds like a scalper's come-on, but actually it's just another sweeps-week gimmick. "Saturday Night Live" producer Lorne Michaels announced yesterday that Bruce Springsteen will perform three songs on the May 9 show (WMAR, Channel 2). Actor Joe Pesci is the scheduled host.Not only will this be Springsteen's network debut -- his tube time up to this point has consisted mostly of music videos -- but it will also mark his post-E St. Band debut.
