Has it died? If so, when exactly? Search and destroy skits of the recent to current cast.......slim pickings I know. Tonight's show's "assface" boyband guy spewing leakage on stage was much enjoyed by me and thus I made this thread.

Search: 1. Absolutely everything involving Tracy Morgan.....his delivery can salvage even the worst written skit.....remember Dominican Lou? "i working all de tie!"....he was the only good thing about tonight's, easily....I hate india arie with a passionfruit. 2. The Ah, How Do You Say? Ah, yes, Show....with Antonio ah Ban-de-rassssss. 3. Maya Rudolph's high school TV show skit...her croaky delivery is priceless.....she's hot....I loved finding out Maya was in the Rentals and is Minnie Ripperton's daughter. 4. The earlier Morning Latte's......remember the one where the teleprompter dies and everyone goes medieval and Will Ferrell rips off the weatherman's head and drinks the blood.......I MISS CHERI OTERI, THAT DOLL.

Destroy: Tina Fey in skits. All weekend updates post-Norm.....Colin Quinn was horrible....now Fallon's slacker doofus act does not cut it. Come to think of it, almost everything sucks now...

S & D musical performances too if you want. Recently, The Strokes were pretty good, as were Outkast, Britney was shit.

Look, the best ever TV comedy-show performance in the past 15 years was Busta and Q-Tip doing Vivrant Thing on Letterman....best crowd response I've ever seen.

Ramosi, Sunday, 10 March 2002 01:00 (twenty years ago) link

Search: The Sweet Sassy Molassy sketch ("Get out the checkbook, and pay Grandma for the rubdown!"), FTV Funhouse (too many to mention), The Donatella Versace show, any time Christopher Walken is hosting (e.g., the skit b/t him and Tim Meadows re: The Census)

Destroy: The writing staff.

Also destroy: Jimmy Fallon's guitar parodies.

Joe, Sunday, 10 March 2002 01:00 (twenty years ago) link

The writing is just terrible these days. The Daily Show can come up with better jokes four days a week. As can Conan. As can Lettermen.

Is it just me or does Horatio Sanz laugh during every skit that he is in, even if he isn't supposed to?

Todd Burns, Sunday, 10 March 2002 01:00 (twenty years ago) link

Horatio Sanz is completely unfunny, I think he was hired as the token fat guy replacement for Farley --- the only problem is that he isn't even a tenth as funny as Farley.

Nicole, Sunday, 10 March 2002 01:00 (twenty years ago) link

Darrell Hammond? Great impressionist. The cheerleaders...never thought they were even remotely funny. I *do* like the recurring sketch with the two lllluvahs (i.e. unctuous college professor and partner), though. Ferrell cracks me up in that one.

I was always an SNL apologist but that all ends starting last Saturday night. OMG. What a freakshow. The (literally) funniest part of SNL now is just the fact the Chris Kattan is still there. He's like 40 and all he ever has is bit parts where he's Mango or that monkey, and none of the cast seems very friendly with him (like during the wave-goodbye as the sax plays part). And yet he's probably the most talented member left!

I hate Jimmy Fallon.

S: Chris Parnell's raps, Dog Show, The Leatherman (until it all fell apart...well, I liked that too), The Falconer (I'm laughing just thinking about that one!), anything Chris Walken, The Tina Jimmy Weekend Update (haterz be damned!), the Chris Kattan/Cheri Oteri couples skit with Ben Affleck as the Armenian car salesman, the Will Ferrel/Rachel Dratch "Lovers" skits, anything Mya Rudolph ever does

D: Jaret's Room, Mango, Adam Sa...I mean, Jimmy Fallon's guitar parodies

I think Jimmy Fallon is rather funny, but not nearly as funny (nor original) as he seems to think he is.

Actually, I think the plight of SNL is that they have some extremely talented cast members, but don't have the solid writing to back it up like in some days of yore. There are sporadic bits of amazingly funny stuff ("I got a fever, and the only prescription is more cowbell!"), but it's just not SOLID.

Dan Perry (Dan Perry), Wednesday, 26 February 2003 14:22 (nineteen years ago) link

If I'm remembering this right, each cast member is allowed to write at least one sketch per week, so of course when you have comics who aren't comedy writers you get a lot of awful sketches that drag on and on because Mr. Egomaniac Comedian doesn't know how to shape a scene.

Jody Beth Rosen (Jody Beth Rosen), Wednesday, 26 February 2003 14:27 (nineteen years ago) link

The old "repeat the same fucking joke but make it bigger each time until it's just kerrrrrazy" formula

Weekend Update is awful, sorry. There's no bite to the jokes. they seem happily surprised if a joke does well, and if it doesn't they lean reaaaal hard on the "it's not funny; isn't that funny!?" thing that is the death-knell of television comedy (cf Johnny Carson, Conan's monologue)

Revive, as I feel a bit left out.

Everyone keeps banging on about SNL and I've never seen it - indeed, living in the UK with no Sky means I probably never will. Is there like a SNL Best Of DVD around? Or should I not bother - is it over-hyped rubbish?

Johnney B (Johnney B), Wednesday, 14 April 2004 12:12 (eighteen years ago) link

You can buy best of dvds for a number of different castmembers throughout the years. Good ones would be Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, Chris Farley, Phil Hartman, Will Ferrell, and Tracy Morgan. Not sure if those last two actually exist.
Personally, though, I only think the show is fun to watch when it is live. Sounds silly, but it seems more exciting. Also Weekend Update is always my favorite part and I don't think they would be on the DVDs.

That book seemed a bit too "authorized". Everyone seemed to be saying the same thing: "Lorne Michaels is a bit obtuse and aloof, but he sho' know what he's doing!"

I liked the bit about Larry David. The part with him and Dick Ebersol standing by the elevator sounded just like something out of "Curb Your Enthusiasm".

It dipped to pretty serious levels of suckitude this spring -- mostly so-so premises that proceeded to go someplace even worse than nowhere -- but then the season finale was actually reliably funny. Will Forte seems to be the most enjoyable one, now that Maya Rudolph's started to seem less like an exciting newbie and more like she's trying to carry whole awful concepts on the shoulders of her talent.

I'm with the late Michael O'Donoghue: hasn't been edgy since 1976, consistently funny since '78-79, worth watching since Mike Myers left.

The M'OD bio "Mr Mike" is worth a read. He bitched when the original cast started to do recurring characters, cuz he thought that was too much like Carol Burnett etc.

Dr Morbius (Dr Morbius), Wednesday, 25 May 2005 15:01 (seventeen years ago) link

OK I caught it last week. Most of it was totally unfunny but the "Chaotic" parody was bizarre and basically gave me giggles for days. "Oh HELL no. Hell...no."

I just read the Mr. Mike bio last week. He made a good point about the show having more than enough "wacky wacky" when the producers resisted his attempts to give William S. Burroughs a brief segment on one of the early 80s episodes.

sadly, i watch SNL alot. seth whatshisname seems like the obvious replacement for jimmy fallon - he smirks constantly, isn't very funny and is in far too many sketches.

the writers' terror of offending anyone makes most of the sketches heavily dependent on unfunny gimmicks and repetition, much like conan o'brien's show these days.

That Sarah Squirm thing, that's some of that there "anti-comedy", isn't it? I could tell because the performer was dressed like a children's TV host and shouting way too loud for someone in a room full of microphones, and a three-minute bit felt seven hours long.

but also fuck you (unperson), Sunday, 14 November 2021 21:19 (ten months ago) link

i don't think it was anti-comedy, i mean she was explicitly delivering punchlines in the weekend update style! obviously though she goes for a sort of divisive kind of personality. one might say that you were... idk... squirming thru the bit? i thought it was funny tho. interesting juxtaposition w/ the other new guy who never gets put in sketches who did some real conceptual update bit that kind of bombed, feel a bit bad for him.

i thought this was a funny episode. i like please don't destroy, the hard seltzer skit they did earlier in the season was great.

J0rdan S., Sunday, 14 November 2021 21:23 (ten months ago) link

i've been wondering recently ... has it always been standard for the cold open to be a riff on political/topical news even if there isn't actually much news to riff on, and so the show ends up doing some terrible/hacky/boring bit about, like, filibusters or some other actual political policy that has no comedic value? my earliest memories of SNL are when darrell hammond as clinton and will ferrell as bush actually gave the the show a good reason to do political cold opens. but there must have been periods around that time and before/after in non election seasons or w/e where there wasn't an obvious political sketch to do... did they ever do cold opens that were just funny sketches not explicitly tied to some news event from the preceding 4-5 days?

J0rdan S., Sunday, 14 November 2021 21:23 (ten months ago) link

I can't remember a cold open that's ever been set in an abstract. They've always been current events-related, though not always specifically political.

Ⓓⓡ. (Johnny Fever), Sunday, 14 November 2021 21:42 (ten months ago) link

i def remember older snl bits that opened with non-political sketches, but i wanna say that changed during the clinton impeachment years?

interesting juxtaposition w/ the other new guy who never gets put in sketches who did some real conceptual update bit that kind of bombed, feel a bit bad for him.

I thought that bit - the AI/robot comedian - was very funny and well done. Purely on a technical level, the way he used his voice was really impressive, and the way it built to a punch line like the machine had learned something from the interaction was really sharp.

but also fuck you (unperson), Sunday, 14 November 2021 21:44 (ten months ago) link

yeah i liked it, it was clearly well thought out & he performed it with aplomb. i bet he auditioned for the show with it. but it was prob just not for the right crowd for it, i mean these are ppl who scream at the top of their lungs for colin jost’s jokes y’know

J0rdan S., Sunday, 14 November 2021 21:49 (ten months ago) link

I didn’t think Athari’s bit bombed at all. Obviously it wasn’t easy following Squirm, and it was more impressive than funny, but the audience seemed into it. And I thought his previous sketch (“Angelo” on the Rami Malek episode) was really solid. Kid’s going places!

That Sarah Squirm thing, that's some of that there "anti-comedy", isn't it?

No, it was pretty straightforward joke writing and comic delivery, she yelled in an exaggerated way and said funny things and I laughed, it was about as straight down the lane as comedy gets.

The "anti-comedy" version of that bit is David S. Pumpkins, which I appreciate, but didn't really laugh at and don't need to see again.

Guayaquil (eephus!), Sunday, 14 November 2021 22:12 (ten months ago) link

Oh, I believe you--I don't tune in that much. (Not sure why I did last night.) Cecily Strong's Marjorie Taylor Greene in the midst of "Cruz Street" wasn't that bad, though I'm sure they could do better.

Checking the "One SNL A Day" review blog, the first political cold open was in the fourth episode, with Chevy as Ford:

https://www.onesnladay.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/11.8.1975_0.00.50.00.jpg

And the second was two episodes later, with Chevy again doing Ford:

Seems to me they initially started really leaning into the political cold opens with the '88 Election launching the Poppy Carvey Interzone (so much so that in the last one of his administration, Hartman as Clinton swoops in and does the "Live From..." line, it's followed up by Carvey lamenting, "I used to get to say that."

DJI, Monday, 20 December 2021 23:54 (nine months ago) link

It was much weirder than sic describes imo, with Paul Rudd delivering the monologue to an empty room, with only one member of the band sitting behind him. Weekend Update was Tina Fey and Michael Che sitting on stools on the main stage pitching the jokes to Kenan Thompson, Tom Hanks and Paul Rudd sitting in the audience. A true clip show with just intros would have been less uncanny.

And that pre-taped Pete Davidson sketch thing was just weird, like it was unfinished or something, I don't know. Seemed like 2 of the 3 pre-taped skits they did would have been cut in a normal week. The Christmas Socks one was the only "new" thing worth even a half-chuckle.

Precious, Grace, Hill & Beard LTD. (C. Grisso/McCain), Tuesday, 21 December 2021 03:32 (nine months ago) link

Lotta people think Lorne's influence on SNL drags it toward mediocrity and without him the writers and performers would soar on the wings of eagles. Eeeeh, he's done OK. The alternate history of mid-boggling funny stuff is just a wishful theory. NBC is a big, old network, owned by Comcast, an even bigger money-grasping corporation and that's probably a much more decisive factor in SNL's limitations than Lorne. He knows his real job is delivering a consistently large audience, not comedic brilliance. He's good at it.

more difficult than I look (Aimless), Tuesday, 21 December 2021 05:25 (nine months ago) link

While the overall arc of the show is definitely a slow decline, I don't think the drop off has been as stark as the popular consensus seems to imply. Decades of them churning out clip shows and "best of" collections have made it seem like past eras were just wall-to-wall peaks of hilarity, but rewatching full episodes (not the edited for Comedy Central ones, mind) remind you that it was always hit and miss. It's just more miss now than hit most episodes.

I saw it reported that there was an actual outbreak (either with the staff and crew or the cast, not sure). Also Billie Eilish said Lorne Michaels was coughing all over the place the week before.

It was a terrible episode, they really should have canned it and just done a rerun but I guess they paid for Rudd and Hanks to be there and thought they could pull it off. If they'd bothered to put Fey and Che behind the desk for WU that might have helped somewhat.

That wasn't a laugh track, that was crew.

akm, Tuesday, 21 December 2021 16:44 (nine months ago) link

The whole SNL arc is a rollercoaster ride, with one of the most consistent narrative beats being the show pulling victory from the jaws of defeat almost every time they've needed to (i.e. Murphy & Piscopo rising out of the Doumanian season; getting canceled & then uncanceled in S11, allowing for the S12 cast of Hartman, Hooks, Carvey etc. to happen; rebuilding w/Ferrell, Shannon etc. immediately after the 'Bad Boys' era collapsed; the "Lazy Sunday" vid getting in on the ground floor of YouTube and making that site a household name; and bringing back Fey to play Sarah Palin, making the show a watercooler sensation).
