Review: Miley Cyrus proves comedy prowess on SNL

By | March 7, 2011 at 9:13 am | 2 comments

It was only a matter of time before Charlie Sheen’s recent interview antics were going to get the Saturday Night Live treatment. The show dove head-first into the strange and strangely fascinating behavior with a Cold Open that made him the host of his own twisted talk show,...

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

By | February 14, 2011 at 9:42 am | No comments

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

By | February 10, 2011 at 5:06 pm | 3 comments

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...

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...

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...
