Kanye West creates fun in an otherwise un-funny Saturday Night Live episode

By | October 4, 2010 at 2:56 pm | 2 comments

It doesn’t bode well for a legendary sketch comedy show when the most memorable part of an episode is the musical performance.

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!"
