Favorite SNL Clip

I love: Old French Whore.

by Anonymousreply 17904/25/2013

Thank you, OP! "Old French Whore" is one of my all-time favorite SNL sketches and I haven't seen it in many years. Garth Brooks in drag was a riot.

Probably the hardest I've ever laughed at an SNL skit was the "Joyride" skit with Ross Perot (Dana Carvey) and Admiral Stockdale (Phil Hartman) the week after Stockdale first publicly appeared in a vice-presidential debate.

It will never be as funny as it was when it first appeared, but it was so timely and strange it had me howling with laughter.

My favorite is from long ago....the first season.

I looked for it on-line, but could not find it, even though several sites list it as one of the top 10 moments on TV.....

Gilda Radner and Chevy Chase doing a commercial for "Autumn Fizz...The CARBONATED Douche!"

I think I say this every time there's an SNL thread but, my god, the show was shit in the mid-90s. This was the era of Norm McDonald Weekend Update, Collin Quin, David Koechner, Chris Kattan's coach that no one could understand, Chris Kattan's Mr. Peepers, Chris Kattan's Mango, Jim Brewer (Goat Boy)...Even some of WIll Ferrel's stuff was bad during this period.

Damn that was a horrible era. I don't know what was different but clearly all of these missteps could probably be laid with one person. All of the humor of that time was all middle age, angry white guy, deadpan humor that no one else found funny.

A send-up in the early years of "Mutiny on the Bounty" and the captain (Belushi doing Brando) and all the shipmates were gay. The Bounty was called The Raging Queen or The Flaming Queen, I can't remember which.

Belushi doing that commentator on Weekend Update who used to get him self to riled up he'd flip off of his chair. The St. Patrick's Day rant was a classic.

Another one from the early years where Garrett Morris and Cicely Tyson sang "Bess, You is My Woman Now" from "Porky and Bess" and of course "Porky" stuttered.

I can't find any of these clips online.

There was one from the early years. Something along the lines of one of those teeny tiny restaurants popular at the time.

There would be screaming and fighting in the kitchen, and then Ackroyd and announce to the diners, "And now our daughter Connie will play for you upon the recorder."

Or something to that effect.

Back when Amy Fisher shot Mary Jo Buttafuoco, SNL parodied the fact that all the networks were doing made-for-TV movies on the event.

I remember them doing skits for PBS (The House of Buttafu-o-co), FOX (Tori Spelling as Amy Fisher), and BET (Amy Fisher: One F-ed Up Bitch). I think it was Ellen Cleghorne as Mary Jo, yelling "Bitch, get off mah porch!"

R82, that reminds me of a sketch in the early 1990s when the Natalie/Nat King Cole duet "Unforgettable" came out. It featured Ellen Cleghorne as Natalie and then among others Judy Garland, Mama Cass (Chris Farley), and Elvis. Every time they'd announce a new album it would be a riff on "Unforgettable." I think one of them was "Unrevivable" but I don't remember which. I think that was Judy's. Another one not available online except in transcript, where they fail to announce (transcribe) the theme for each performance cameo, which was the funniest part of the sketch.

Ellen Cleghorne and Jan Hooks were my favorites in that period, I think - especially Jan Hooks as Jan Brady.

Bottom line, even if you can still do the kicks, a 50 year old, male or female, has no business doing sexy/leggy/jazzy kicks. Thankfully, I had a very supportive audience because it was for a good cause. So have Chita, Cyd, Ann, Donald, Fred, Liza, Mitzi, Mikhail, etc etc.

And my friends and I still joke about James Brown's Celebrity Hot Tub every time we're on vacation.

"I'm gettin' in the hot tub...OW"

Too funny.

I loved the commercial Tina Fey and Maya Rudolph made for a device called a woomba. Sometimes thinking about Maya running across that field in a flowing nightgown being chased by the woomba makes me laugh.

Funny thing about that seeing that Debbie Downer clip is that both Horatio Sanz and Jimmy Fallon were both in it, and they were both on the new SNL this weekend. Jimmy looks almost the same, and Horatio is unrecognizable.

I think what set of Rachel Dratch in R144's clip, is towards the beginning the trumpet player blew an out of sequence "whah." From there it was all down hill.

There was skit a few years ago with Rachel Dratch and the guest ( Catherine Zeta Jones maybe?) playing proper Bostonian ladies in the early 1900's. All I remember is dratch saying nonsensical retorts like "Scandlamity", but it was funny as hell.

Anyone know where to find that clip?

I think I can clear this up in just three words: "The bitch ugly." I rest my case.

I remember that, and it was very funny. Edwards really did look like her, believe it or not.

One skit that totally cracked me up was Mike Meyers as Queen Elizabeth II discussing the settlement between Charles and Diana. I can't remember all of it but some of it was:

Charles shall retain the Bentley, Rolls and Jaguar. Diana shall retain the Toyota Tercel...

Yahoo has snagged exclusive rights to the entire 38-year clip library of “Saturday Night Live” from Broadway Video, the company announced in a blog post Wednesday.

Those archives will move from their current home on Hulu and in September to Yahoo, which made the unexpected deal days ahead of its April 29th NewFront, where it will likely emphasize its growth as an online source for comedy programming.

Securing “SNL” should work well as a complement to Yahoo’s comedy holdings, which include dating-show satire “Burning Love.”

With its skit-based format, “SNL” translates well to digital platforms, which are more conducive to short-form “snacking” in terms of consumption habits. And given the sheer depth of that library, it’s not a small loss for either Hulu or though it is only a one-year deal.

However, full-length episodes from the “SNL” archives will remain on Hulu’s subscription arm, Hulu Plus, as well as Netflix.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
