Did Russell Brand play it too safe on Saturday Night Live?

If you’ve caught Russell Brand’s stand-up on this side of the pond, you know the “I’m more famous in England” disclaimer that he applies to most American crowds is really buildup for explaining his odd hairstyle. But, perhaps because he had so many hats and wigs to don...

Russell Brand hosts SNL this week; let's watch his promos

There's little in life that I enjoy more than lazily embedding promos featuring the guest host of Saturday Night Live each week. You may know that "bad boy" British comedian Russell Brand is hosting this week; and complete fucking asshole Chris Brown is the musical guest-- which...

Dana Carvey gives SNL the old school treatment, and a few laughs along the way

Watching Saturday Night Live this week felt like introducing your mature, good-natured adult friends to that crazy cool old college buddy that you reminisce about all the time. At first, it was great, with the show spotlighting the biggest and best marks host Dana Carvey left on...

Is SNL trying to make us hate Dana Carvey with these promos?

By | February 2, 2011 at 4:53 pm | 3 comments

Who doesn't love Dana Carvey, right? We think maybe the folks had that in mind when they recorded these horrible promos to plug his hosting duties this Saturday. The challenge they sought? How many people can we get to turn against a comedy legend everyone...

Jesse Eisenberg, Nicki Minaj push SNL to one of its best episodes of the season

By | January 31, 2011 at 10:30 am | No comments

Too often SNL feels like it’s made up of recycled parts, as if more time was spent trying to fit the week’s guests into already planned parts rather than putting together sketches specifically for the guests on hand. This week, however, was different. While it wasn’t a...

Gwyneth Paltrow and bad habits detract from an otherwise fun Saturday Night Live

By | January 17, 2011 at 10:39 am | No comments

This week’s Saturday Night Live spanned the (occasional) good, (mostly) bad and (sometimes even) ugly of poking fun at all forms of entertainment. The show began with a throwaway Cold Open led by Greta Van Sustern (Kristen Wiig) introducing a panel of Fox News regulars...

Jim Carrey owns the stage on Saturday Night Live

By | January 10, 2011 at 10:53 am | No comments

Whether he was actually as positive as he claimed sarcastically or just positively into it, host Jim Carrey brought some serious energy to SNL this week. Introducing not just episode one of 2011, but “the very first show of the last year of our existence,” he owned the...

Saturday Night Live delivers a few gifts before Christmas

By | December 20, 2010 at 3:53 pm | No comments

‘Twas the week before Christmas… and the folks at Saturday Night Live delivered some decent presents for this week’s holiday show. They also delivered a few socks ‘n’ underwear- caliber duds. The funny thing is, they seemed to wrap most of them the same. That is to...

Saturday Night Live delivers laughs despite emphasis on Paul McCartney’s presence

By | December 13, 2010 at 11:09 am | No comments

Host Paul Rudd’s monologue on this week's Saturday Night Live was a bit of a self-fulfilling prophesy. Of course, when a Beatle is in the studio, you’ve got no delusions that you’re the center of attention. And if you’re a cast member, you probably feel you’re even...
