I wanted to watch the 400 year anniversary (not a typo that's how long it's been since it's been funny imho) celebration show of Saturday Night Live to write a review, but I didn't have time to watch it. Actually, I didn't have the strength of character or intestinal fortitude to sit through it. I knew there would be a lot of humor I didn't.....get, let's say.
I don't want to take a steamy one all over the show for not entertaining me for the past few years, because a lot of people seem to like it. Maybe I'm just too old to understand the rich, modern complexity of the humor, like every Adam Sandler movie. I am definitely too old to enjoy the musical guests, whoever those loud whippersnappers are.
I also know I couldn't do any better right now, so I don't want to become a Kanye critic like everyone in my Facebook feed who could apparently write "such a better book than 50 Shades." Because it's just that easy. You see a book that sucks, so you make fun of it and all anyone has to do is put letters on a page to write a best-seller that gets turned into a movie. That's why everyone we know is so stinking rich. I'm about to know a LOT of famous writers, apparently, based on Facebook rants. All of whom would definitely "represent the BDSM community more acccurately."
Those people should definitely write comedy because that made me laugh harder than anything I've read in a long time. Yes thank you for thinking of the sensitivities of people who like to insert sharp objects into their orifices.
That kind of sensitive person obviously takes what others think of them very seriously. I look forward to reading your fan non-fiction non-fantasy very politically correct porn. It sounds intensely stimulating.
Someone did send me a video of Celebrity Jeopardy, my favorite SNL skit pretty much ever. I'll post it at the end, so funny. If you like that kind of thing.
If you're not familiar it's a comedy homage to Celebrity Week on the trivia game show Jeopardy, which normally is rich with information from history, geography, culture and home fragrance delivery. That show is really interested in all things potpourri for some reason, it's a category quite often for something that is made from floral scraps to cover disgusting odors. But, to each their own. This is a clip from the actual Jeopardy of the "sexiest potpourri ever" and it's already better as porn than 50 Shades. Listen to his VOICE!
Celebrity Week on the show has different kinds of questions, since that week is dedicated to celebrities playing and winning money for charity, and not any people who have ever decided to read a book.
It's the only week I can actually answer any of the questions, so you know they're pitching softballs.
SNL didn't miss that.
The categories in the reunion show, according to the clip I watched include:
"The Letter G"
"State Your Name"
"Who Reads" which Sean Connery says as "WHORE ADS."
"Let It Snow" or "Le Tits Now" to Sean. Good stuff.
They also feature some hysterical celebrity impressions, and their eccentricities. I usually have no idea if they are accurate, but they're usually funny for some reason. Norm McDonald does a great Burt Reynolds and sometimes tells Trebek to call him "Turd Ferguson." There may be a story behind it, but the word turd is funny enough apparently, because I always laugh like a 9 yr old boy.
"The color of snow."
"Yellow," and explains he knows because he made some yesterday, spelling his name in the snow, "...in your mother's handwriting." Maybe you have to picture that for a sec.
|No? Just me?
Jim Carrey as Matthew McConacooky was pretty funny, he riffs the babbling nonsense of the Lincoln commercial that has provided sustenance to many a comedians' stand-up routines. I have no idea if the commercials were successful, but they are so fun to mock. Fun to do, fun to watch. Try it. Here's Jim Carrey doing it:
So much fun. It's why we love comedy.
I don't know how to wrap this up, but my kids are up so I'm signing off until next week, or the next time something ticks me off to do a long, weird rant. Have a great week!
Here's the clip I promised:
