In this adaption of the classic SNL sketch Wayne (Meyers) and Garth (Carvey) host a cable access show (ahem, Wayne’s World) from Wayne’s parents’ basement. The show catches the eye of a TV executive (Lowe) who offers to buy it from the duo. What happens to our heroes when go pro with their homespun hit?
