Robert De Niro typecasted on Saturday Night Live; funny at times

By | December 6, 2010 at 11:42 am | No comments

There’s a bit of irony in this week’s show. You’ve got an actor of Robert De Niro’s caliber hosting, one whose very reason for being a host is that his ability to deliver in comedies has proven so successful that audiences are flocking for thirds with “Little Fockers.” And yet, he spent most of the night playing either himself or his old cast-type. In one more...


Anne Hathaway, Jay Pharoah lead Saturday Night Live to a solid night of laughs

She awkwardly mumbles as the pseudo-“complex” Katie Holmes on the Miley Cyrus Show. She dons a Dorothy costume and Judy Garland’s voice to boot. She Brits-up as royalty-to-be Kate Middleton. She kicks up combat-booted heels as Alanis Morrissette. She busts out a thick Bronx accent for an on-the-scene news bit. It’s the weekend before Thanksgiving, and among the more...

Scarlett Johansson proves her range on Saturday Night Live, but fails to help with laughs

By | November 15, 2010 at 10:36 am | No comments

It’s difficult when I have to write not-so-nice things about someone for whom I have a lot of professional respect. But this week’s Saturday Night Live, hosted by excellent actress Scarlett Johansson, was simply boring. Her acting skills were certainly present, as she performed a range of characters that included a beautiful, pregnant Latina woman and an over-the-top more...

As if pulling out a (fake) joint on Bill Maher's show was surprising enough, Zach Galifianakis surprised us with a new hair cut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night! The Hangover star was on the show promoting his new movie Due Date co-starring Robert Downey Jr. About half-way through the interview, he whips off a wig while talking about the "smoke and mirrors" of more...

Sean Kent has lent his darkly slanted socio-political humor to the entertainment landscape, having appeared in shows and on networks ranging from Comedy Central, VH1, E Entertainment and CBS; NBC’s Last Comic Standing, and The Best Damn Sports Show Period on Fox Sports Net, just to name a few. His work ethic is insurmountable, continuing to write through two bouts of more...

By John Delery and Billy Procida TBS has poured its heart, soul and, most important, its promotional budget into Conan O'Brien's resurrected late-night talk show, called, simply enough, Conan. The intent, of course, to announce, no, scream, Conan’s “BAAAAAAAAACK!” But are the rambunctious redhead and his hopeful benefactors at the basic cable network trying too more...


Emma Stone brings together two types of viewers on Saturday Night Live

By | October 25, 2010 at 10:29 am | One comment

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...

You probably know comedian Judah Friendlander, one of the stars of NBC’s 30 Rock, as the World Champion. You may be less familiar with him as an author. But now he's both of those things.
