All told, this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live, hosted by Emma Stone, did an admirable job of bridging the gap between “Emma who?”-viewers and fans of the teen-geared flicks the young actress is known for. After introducing herself and her work, Stone quickly concentrated on the niche she’s carved for herself as a good-looking geek magnet, earning plenty of more...

It doesn’t bode well for a legendary sketch comedy show when the most memorable part of an episode is the musical performance. Kanye West’s two sets on this week’s Saturday Night Live were simply stunning to see! It was like watching a music video… live. Of course, NBC isn’t offering footage of “Power” or “Runaway,” the two songs Kanye performed, but a more...

"Who would've thought that a guy who had his shit so together would have hair like Lisa Lampanelli's fuck hole." That's what Greg Giraldo said to me when I first met him face to face. It was 2005, the year I launched Punchline Magazine. Greg had literally turned 40 minutes before, and having just wrapped up a masterful early show at Carolines in New York City, he was more...

The 36th season premiere of Saturday Night Live was pretty magical. Not in that hokey poetic way. I mean the show's overall impact relied on a bit of a slight-of-hand approach -- or as host Amy Poehler's husband Will Arnett might have said on Arrested Development, "It's an illuuuuuusion!" But let's come back to that. First, let's hear from the host herself. Now, that more...

Long Story Short Not Long Enough Lest my headline be misleading, Long Story Short would be too short no matter how long it was. I LOVE Colin Quinn. Not in a Biblical way, but in the way you love someone who embodies the kind of talent you would aspire to have if you could.
