  • ‘Saturday Night Live’ mocks 1864 Arizona pro-life law… but guess what else passed in 1864?

    “Saturday Night Live” joked about abortion last weekend during its “Weekend Update” segment, focusing the ‘joke’ specifically on Arizona’s recent state Supreme Court decision to allow a longstanding pro-life law, put in place in 1864 to go into effect. “Reinstating laws from 1864 isn’t the worst thing for me, because I’m a white landowner,” co-host Colin Jost said. “And a proud Freemason.” Jost, who is white, and co-host Michael Che, who is Black, have a running racism joke between them with Che often joking that Jost is racist. “But it’s probably not great to adopt healthcare rules from a time...
  • Conan O’Brien praises late Norm Macdonald for O.J. Simpson jokes that got him fired from ‘SNL’

    Conan O’Brien had some lavish praise for late comic Norm Macdonald following the news of O.J. Simpson’s death — and why Macdonald was fired from “Saturday Night Live.” O’Brien, 60 — who was promoting his Max series, “Conan O’Brien Must Go” — appeared on CNN with Jake Tapper in the hours after news broke on April 11 that Simpson died at the age of 76 from cancer. When the conversation turned to Simpson, O’Brien wasted no time in remembering how Macdonald mercilessly ripped Simpson on “Saturday Night Live” in his “Weekend Update” segments after Simpson was arrested in the 1994...

    On March 17, 1984, Billy Crystal gave Saturday Night Live viewers their first taste of his debonair character, Fernando. At the time, Crystal wasn’t yet a cast member, but was instead the episode’s host. The comedian had seen his fame steadily rise thanks to his popular standby career, as well as television roles and (briefly) his own variety show on NBC, The Billy Crystal Comedy Hour. Crystal had previously made a guest appearance on Saturday Night Live, performing a monologue during a season one episode. Still, this would be his first time hosting, and he brought a character with him...

    omedic actor Bill Murray has shared names of four actors who he would like to see portray him in the upcoming Saturday Night Live biopic, SNL 1975. Last year, it was revealed director Jason Reitman had been lined up by Sony Pictures to create a new movie depicting the inaugural episode of the hit comedy programme which aired in 1975. The show, devised by Lorne Michaels, is currently in its 49th season on NBC. While Murray was not part of the initial cast for Saturday Night Live, instead joining in 1977, the comedy talent played a pivotal role in shaping...

    Sydney Sweeney, a blonde-haired, blue-eyed knockout from the Heartland with a Christian upbringing and at least some MAGA-adjacent family members, is everything the woke left believes is wrong with America. Sweeney is a part of America’s nebulous systems of oppression. Thanks to her looks, she benefits from a system designed to benefit the women straight white men find attractive. Her mere existence is the reason why “marginalized” women can’t find success in Hollywood. Fewer Sweeneys, and more multiracial obese transgender women, the woke left demands.
  • ‘SNL’ Mocks Democrats Defending Joe Biden’s Age and Vitality: ‘He Parkoured to the Top of the Border Wall’

    03/03/2024 4:05:46 PM PST · by rightwingintelligentsia · 30 replies
    March 3 (UPI) — This weekend’s edition of Saturday Night Live opened with a comedy sketch mocking defenders of U.S. President Joe Biden’s age, energy, and acuity. The 5-minute segment showed CNN anchor Dana Bash (played by Heidi Gardner) interviewing California Gov. Gavin Newsom (Michael Longfellow) about polls that suggest many Americans don’t think that Democrat Biden, 81, is sharp enough to lead the country for another four years if he wins re-election in November against presumptive Republican candidate and former president, Donald Trump, 77. The sketch also includes on-camera remarks from White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre (played by...

    Shane Gillis is a 31-year-old comic from Philadelphia. I’d never heard of him till last week, when Saturday Night Live (which I hardly ever watch anyway) announced that he would be among the new members of its cast this fall. Within hours of his hiring, social-media users posted clips of Gillis recording a podcast in which he did some bits on Chinese people that indulged in some woeful stereotyping, mocked Chinese speech and used the word “chinks.” Of Chinatown, he said, “Let the f***ing chinks live there.” In other bits on Matt & Shane’s Secret Podcast, Gillis used the word...

    In a matter of minutes, Shane Gillis deftly put to bed one of the most nefarious lies of the pro-abortion left: that killing preborn babies with Down syndrome is the merciful thing to do.Shane Gillis, the stand-up comedian who’s partly famous for being fired as a cast member from “Saturday Night Live” before he even debuted, was somehow invited back to host the show over the weekend. Of course, that honor allowed him to deliver the iconic monologue. For Gillis — surrounded by the unfunny scolds who fired him in 2019 in part for making the type of joke that’s...

    The New York Times proudly announced last Monday that it had “won three George Polk awards, including two for its coverage of the Israel-Hamas war.” Those prestigious journalism awards went to “Samar Abu Elouf and Yousef Masoud of The Times” for “photojournalism for their photographs of the conflict from inside Gaza, capturing the horrific toll of Israel’s airstrikes on civilians, including the death and injury of many children.” The Times neglected to mention, however, one telling detail: Masoud has been unmasked as a member of Hamas who participated in the Oct. 7 jihad massacres inside Israel.The Paper of Record shows...

    Given that Shane Gillis was famously fired from “Saturday Night Live” for using a racial slur, one might imagine he’d tread a little carefully during his stunning return to the show. Apparently not, we hear. Sources tells Page Six that Gillis plans to use the Down syndrome jokes that have long been a part of his act. Gillis has relatives with the condition and has worked with kids who live with it, and the bits he does in his stand-up act come off as unconventionally affectionate and even celebratory of people with Downs. But it remains to be seen whether...

    Republican presidential candidate former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley attacked rival President Donald Trump in a surprise appearance during the ‘cold open’ of Saturday Night Live last night. Haley, who is trailing Trump by nearly 30 points in the latest poll for this month’s South Carolina primary and nearly 60 points in national polls, was well received by the liberal New York City television studio audience as she sparred with a Trump character during a candidate forum opening skit. The cold open was a mock CNN South Carolina town hall with Trump, played by James Austin Johnson, being baited with...

    Saturday Night Live (SNL) alum and actress Leslie Jones published a book last year, “Leslie ******* Jones: A Memoir,” during which she discussed having multiple abortions. She also appeared on The Daily Show, in a segment where she heavily promoted Planned Parenthood — and for that, the NAACP has nominated her for their Outstanding Image Award. Jones tweeted about the accomplishment on X (formerly known as Twitter), saying she was “beyond honored” to be recognized for her discussion of the “crucial role” Planned Parenthood played for her. “The battle to ensure the reproductive rights for women in the U.S. continues,”...

    Dakota Johnson and Justin Timberlake had a successful evening on Saturday Night Live this weekend, with surprise appearances from Jimmy Fallon, as well as Shark Tank judges Mark Cuban and Barbara Corcoran. But many viewers were surprised – and somewhat confused – to see Dave Chappelle standing onstage during their goodbyes. The comedian appeared to join the cast on stage for no reason at all. To the far left of the stage, SNL cast member Bowen Yang, who has become an audience favorite since joining in 2018, can be seen standing far from the cast, unsmiling. In a video from...

    NBC’s Saturday Night Live ended up with egg on its face when “Weekend Update” co-anchor Colin Jost attempted to make fun of former President Donald Trump for using the word “de-bank” — a well-known financial term used to describe the denial of financial services to political dissidents, frequently at the behest of the government. During Saturday’s broadcast, Colin Jost admitted to not knowing “what the hell” the term meant, while erroneously claiming Trump made the word up.

    Saturday Night Live is, by nature and to some extent by design, a pressure cooker. Performers and writers are expected to compete as much as collaborate in the show’s rush toward the inviolable weekly 11:30 p.m. airtime, and, as more than one backstage personality has said over the years, the Saturday Night Live formula is not conducive to anyone’s mental health. Still, the always tension-filled SNL atmosphere only once, as far as the voluminous behind-the-scenes history tells it, ignited into actual physical violence. That was the infamous Feb. 18, 1978, episode, when former cast member Chevy Chase returned to Saturday...
