    Saturday Night Live” didn’t mask the confusion over current government guidance on face coverings — with a cold-open skit mocking the mayhem over when and where masks are needed. The latest episode opened with “a message from Dr. Anthony Fauci,” with Kate McKinnon reprising her role as the often-controversial leading infectious diseases expert. “It’s your boy, Fauci, the patron saint of Purell,” the fake Fauci said, inviting a group of doctors to act out different scenarios to try to teach Americans “correct mask behavior.” “The CDC announced that people that are vaccinated no longer need to wear masks, outdoors or...

    Tech entrepreneur Elon Musk has revealed he has Asperger's syndrome while appearing on the US comedy sketch series Saturday Night Live (SNL). The 49-year-old told viewers he was "the first person with Asperger's" to host the long-running programme - to loud cheers from the audience. People with Asperger's interpret the environment around them differently to other people. It is thought to be the first time Mr Musk has spoken about his condition. The tech boss was guest hosting the sketch show - a coveted role that has been filled by an array of celebrities since SNL's inception in the 1970s....

    Comedians Dave Chappelle and Joe Rogan speculated that woke culture sparked the early backlash to Elon Musk’s hosting gig on “SNL.” Chappelle sat for over three hours in an episode of “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast posted Friday, with Musk’s debut in sketch comedy being among the many topics discussed. Rogan speculated that people felt Musk was problematic because of his comments downplaying the COVID-19 pandemic and his vast wealth. “No one is woke enough,” Rogan said.

    Elon Musk took the Studio 8H stage over the weekend for his Saturday Night Live hosting debut and, as many expected, there was a lot of cryptocurrency talk. The controversial tech mogul had fans and critics debating the choice to tap him as a host in the lead-up to Saturday’s episode. However, one of the biggest questions was whether or not he’d mention Dogecoin, the satirical cryptocurrency that has skyrocketed in the wake of his repeated online endorsements. As it turns out, Dogecoin — and cryptocurrency in general — actually played a prominent role in the episode. Apart from a...

    The “Saturday Night Live” star, 27, revealed he was scrubbing his ink in December, and opened up about the “really embarrassing” process on Tuesday’s episode of “Late Night With Seth Meyers.” “Burning them off is worse than getting them, because not only are they burning off your skin, but you’re wearing these big goggles, right? So you can’t see anything, and the doctor’s in there with you,” Davidson began. “Before he goes to laser each tattoo, you have to hear him announce what the tattoo is to make sure you want to keep it or not. So I’ll just be...

    The announcement that SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk will be hosting “Saturday Night Live” did not sit well with some cast members. It was so upsetting that SNL is reportedly offering a safe space to those who are triggered by the popular CEO. The “Tesla” CEO will be on SNL on May 8th with musical guest Miley Cyrus.

    “Saturday Night Live” cast members won’t be forced to appear alongside controversial billionaire Elon Musk when he hosts the show, Page Six is told. “Speaking historically, if a cast member has been that unhappy, they don’t have to do it,” a source told us. “[‘SNL’ boss Lorne Michaels] won’t ever make them do anything they don’t want to do.” The Tesla founder, 49, is set to helm the NBC institution on May 8 — but some cast members have made it clear that they’re less than enthused by the prospect of having him on stage at Studio 8H. After Musk...

    During this episode, the cast spoofed a Minneapolis morning news show to discuss the trial over George Floyd’s death in custody. “Sounds like we all agree there’s no way Derek Chauvin walks away from this,” Kate McKinnon said. Two black cast members, Keenan Thompson and Ego Nwodim, immediately began to express doubt. McKinnon goes on to discuss how the defense has been arguing that Floyd’s cause of death was actually the fatal amount of drugs in his system. “And there’s no way the jury is gonna fall for that,” McKinnon says. The black actors continue to express doubt that a...

    NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” chose Pete Davidson to portray embattled Rep. Matt Gaetz — despite the cast member dating an 18-year-old last year. Davidson, 27, appeared as Gaetz (R-Fl.) in the show’s cold open, in which the 38-year-old lawmaker was featured as a guest on a Britney Spears-hosted talk show for “the social pariahs of the week.” During the appearance, Davidson, as Gaetz, quoted Glenn Quagmire, the hyper-sexualized character from “Family Guy,” saying “giggity giggity goo” repeatedly. Davidson dated Kaia Gerber, the 19-year-old supermodel and daughter of Cindy Crawford, until February 2020. She was 18 at the time. Many...

    Plato treated laughter as something to be avoided at all costs; he considered it to be an emotion capable of nullifying one’s self-control.The philosopher, one assumes, would very much approve of SNL, especially the latest episode, where a particularly unfunny segment stood out. It involved Bowen Yang, an Asian American comedian, and Colin Jost, a regular on the show since 2005. Yang was there to discuss the recent wave of anti-Asian hate crimes across the nation. He begins by saying the following: “things for Asian in this country have been bleak for the last two weeks…..and before that, forever.” This...

    Eddie Murphy's early years on the set of Saturday Night Live laid the foundation for the rest of his career, but they almost didn't happen at all. Sometime during the Jan. 10, 1981, show, it became apparent the program was running five minutes short. With only 15 minutes left till the end of the show and nothing on hand to fill in the missing time, producer Jean Doumanian scrambled to find a solution. Murphy, who was just a recently hired featured player and not an official member of the cast, sprung to writer Neil Levy's mind. "I remembered Eddie's from...

    Saturday Night Live finally took a shot at President Joe Biden 67 days after his inauguration with jokes about Kamala Harris running the border situation response, his press conference cheat sheets and his Air Force One tumble. During the Weekend Update with Colin Jost and Michael Che, Jost said: 'This week kind of felt like Biden on those stairs,' referring to the moment Biden fell up the stairs to Air Force One. 'You thought it had to get better but it repeatedly got worse.'

    It's okay for youtube to show Jane Curtain's bra covered mammary glands, but it is not okay for them, when Emily latilla(Gilda Radner) calls Jane a "bitch" at the end of the skit? Also what about the "cultural appropriation" by Gilda Radner, with her character of "roseanadana". An obvious mocking of Puerto Ricans. Time for the leftists to cancel Gilda.

    Amid a burgeoning recall effort and ugly poll numbers, California Gov. Gavin Newsom has now become the butt of jokes on NBC's "Saturday Night Live." Newsom is the first judge introduced and is welcomed with the brutal line, "He's hated by every single person in California except those 10 people he had dinner with in Napa that one time." When asked how how things are going in California, Newsom (played by Alex Moffat) replies, "Teeth: white, bodies: tight, COVID: pretty bad."

    In the right context, cursing on the job can be cathartic. But in the wrong setting, it can stain a career — like in the infamous case of Charles Rocket, who was fired from Saturday Night Live soon after dropping an F-bomb during an episode on Feb. 21, 1981. This wasn't the dismissal of a frivolous bit player — Rocket had been singled out as a potential breakout star in the 1980-81 season, a polarizing and bizarre period in SNL history. The show's original executive producer, Lorne Michaels, left the sketch series with the intent of taking a year off...
