  • Dave Chappelle out-EXPERTS all the experts when it comes to Trump in SPECTACULAR SNL opening (watch)

    11/13/2022 6:10:41 PM PST · by NetAddicted · 14 replies ^ | 11/13/222 | Sam J.
    Hey pundits, experts, activists, and politicians, think you should listen to Dave Chapelle when it comes to ‘why Trump’. He gets it. It was the first time we’ve laughed at SNL in a long long long time. Watch: HE DOESN’T PAY HIS TAXES! Because the system doesn’t make me pay my taxes … because it benefits your donors. Love how he portrays Hillary Clinton, heh. And also sad because it’s true BUT we all need a laugh right now. [Missing tweets I failed to copy] It always feels like the SNL audience isn’t sure if it’s ‘ok’ to laugh. Weird,...
  • ‘A slap in the face’: ‘SNL’ slammed for having Dave Chappelle as host

    New York Post ^ | November 7, 2022
    “Saturday Night Live” is facing backlash after it was announced comedian Dave Chappelle will host the show Nov. 12. Chappelle, who was slammed for making statements about the trans community in his 2021 special “The Closer,” was revealed as the host through the show’s Twitter account. “Wait I thought I canceled him. Is it possible cancel culture isn’t a real thing,” tweeted ex-Netflix employee Terra Field. Field, who was co-vice president of Netflix’s transgender employee resource group, resigned from the streaming platform in November last year in protest over the comedy special and later led a walkout, according to Newsweek.

    Ultimate Classic Rock ^ | October 17, 2022 | Corey Irwin
    On Oct. 17, 1987, Saturday Night Live cast members Dana Carvey and Kevin Nealon debuted their bodybuilding duo Hans and Franz. Even though the characters were ostensibly from Austria, they were born in a far more unlikely place. Carvey and Nealon both joined the SNL lineup in 1986, part of an influx of new, younger talent to uplift the series’ sagging ratings. Both comedians became popular cast members, thanks to such memorable characters as the Church Lady (Carvey) and Mr. Subliminal (Nealon). The men were also close friends and embarked on a comedy tour together during the break between SNL’s...

    Saturday Night Live got back to basics this week, kicking off the show with “live” coverage of what could be the final Jan. 6 committee hearing. And after a brief introduction from Kenan Thompson as Chairman Bennie Thompson—no relation—Heidi Gardner debuted her solid Liz Cheney impression. “Whether you’re a Republican who’s not watching or a Democrat who’s nodding so hard your head is falling off, one person is responsible for this insurrection: Donald Trump,” Gardner’s Cheney said. “And one person will suffer the consequences: me.” Next she explained that she got her “backbone made of steel” from growing up with...
  • SNL Goes Full-Blown Woke

    Once upon a time comedy was meant to make you laugh by poking fun at real life things. Things that may offend, and while most people laughed it off, it has become blasphemy to even consider talking about such things in today’s woke society. “Wokeness” has started to creep into the world by extreme Leftists, and real comedy has become a thing of the past. Saturday Night Live is a prime example, and if you thought it couldn’t get anymore woke, think again. The show added its first ever nonbinary cast member to the lineup who will make regular appearances...

    The 'Deuce Bigalow' star tells Glenn Beck why he 'had' to become a Republican“Saturday Night Live” is now a de facto arm of the Democratic Party. The same isn’t true for those who graduate from the venerable sketch series. “SNL” alums are increasingly embracing the Right. Victoria Jackson did just that a while ago, as did “Weekend Update” standout Dennis Miller. Jon Lovitz needed to run his own business to realize the Right might be friendlier to his entrepreneurial dreams. David Spade doesn’t wear his politics on his sleeve, but he speaks out early and often against the Left’s cudgel,...

    Fox News ^ | August 3, 2022 6:42pm EDT | Caroline Thayer
    Rumors continue to swirl around the demise of one of the few sketch-comedy shows remaining, "Saturday Night Live." With tanking ratings, a dwindling all-star cast and creator Lorne Michaels' contract expiring imminently, the show might not be "live from New York" for much longer. In a recent interview with Charlamagne Tha God, the longest tenured cast member of "SNL," Kenan Thompson, alluded to the end being near. When asked about the rumors the show would be ending, he said, "There could be a lot of validity to that rumor because 50's a good year to stop at." Thompson is referring...
  • When Eddie Murphy and Joe Piscopo Teamed Up to Take Down ‘Ebony and Ivory’

    UltimateClassicRock ^ | May 22, 2022 | Dennis Perkins
    As a song, “Ebony and Ivory” may not have aged well, but, on the May 22, 1982, episode of Saturday Night Live, the treacly Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder duet gave two of the show’s biggest stars one of their biggest hits. With the cloyingly rosy musical paean to black-white relations having come out just that March, SNL writers Barry Blaustein and David Sheffield knew they had the perfect Stevie Wonder for a parody sketch in Eddie Murphy. Murphy, well on his way to becoming one the biggest stars in the show’s history, did a killer Wonder, but had teased...

    Watched the last half hour of SNL last night when I got home from work, I was intrigued by the name of the musical act, "Japanese Tea Garden", and it was really annoying, when the female lead singer would bang a gong every 10 seconds, was it a tribute to T Rex? Well I digressed, at the closing everybody on stage was wearing a mask. What were they trying to convey? They are such hypocrites.
  • ‘SNL’ Cold Open Time Travels to the 13th Century to Tackle Abortion Rights

    Rolling Stone ^ | May 8, 2022 | Ilana Kaplan
    Saturday Night Live traveled back in time to the 13th century to mock Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s perspective on abortion rights. The sketch comes just days after a draft opinion on Roe v. Wade was leaked, causing panic that legalized abortion could come to an end. In the opening of the spoof, a narrator declared that “no woman has a right to an abortion and abortion is a crime.” “He cites a treatise from the 13th Century about the quickening of the foetus, and a second treatise that says that if the quick child dieth in her body, it...

  • How ‘More Cowbell’ Became a Classic ‘Saturday Night Live’ Sketch

    There's never really any true way to know whether a Saturday Night Live sketch will become an instant classic or quickly fade from memory. But as Will Ferrell taught audiences on April 8, 2000, you can tilt the odds pretty drastically in your favor if you fall back on a Blue Öyster Cult hit, some banging cowbell and a fittingly bizarre Christopher Walken performance. We're talking, of course, about the "More Cowbell" sketch, which imagines the recording session that produced the Blue Öyster Cult classic "(Don't Fear) The Reaper" — specifically the contributions made by cowbell player Gene Frenkle (Ferrell),...

    RUSH: Of course the Harvey Weinstein situation — folks, this is big. It’s not just about a Hollywood mogul and his misbehavior. As is always the case, it’s a teachable moment and it is filled with life lessons for people about liberalism. And I’m gonna tell you where all of this really began. It all began in 1969 at Chappaquiddick, when Ted Kennedy was allowed to get away with manslaughter at all costs. Now, in 1969 modern era feminism was just being unrolled, and at the time this happened it really wasn’t established yet. It had some high school girls...
  • NBCUniversal says it’s not liable for Horatio Sanz’s alleged sex assault because it was ‘after hours’

    NBCUniversal says “SNL” comedian Horatio Sanz was off the clock when he allegedly groomed and sexually assaulted a teenage girl, so there’s no way the network should bear any responsibility in the case, according to new court documents. The network says that it can’t be held liable for what the TV actor allegedly did to his 17-year-old accuser “after hours” when he “was not performing his job,” according to papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court by lawyers for NBCUniversal on Friday. The company added that there is no evidence to show the network knew about Sanz’s “alleged predatory behavior.”

    Saturday Night Live returned with a cold open that mocked Virginia "Ginni" Thomas as "the Yoko Ono of the Supreme Court." The episode, hosted by comedian Jerrod Carmichael, began with a parody of a Fox and Friends segment, with Mikey Day as co-host Brian Kilmeade telling his colleagues that downloading former president Donald Trump's TRUTH social app has caused his phone to get "very, very hot." "Like over 140 degrees," he said. "It burned my son actually. Anyway, TRUTH Social—five stars." -snip Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife Ginni Thomas, played by Kenan Thompson and Kate McKinnon, were then brought...

    In the annals of manufactured scandals by TV networks, one of the lamest examples was Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ telling high school students at an event of his: “You do not have to wear those masks. I mean, please take them off. Honestly, it’s not doing anything, and we’ve got to stop this COVID theater.” “NBC Nightly News” tried to make this a story for not just one night, but two. It’s lame because it came after everyone took off their masks for the State of the Union address, after the “nonpartisan” Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ruled against...
