Someone should probably explain to MOJO that Saturday Night Live is not really news. Of course, it's as good a source as most he relies on, so never mind. Guess Alec managed to post bail.
SNL may not be news, but it is a heck of a lot funnier than your sarcastic remarks about the removal of statues as a response for an inquiry into the 58,000 American soldiers lost in Vietnam.
From now on I will label posts satire/sarcasm whenever it's applicable so you don't get confused ;~)
"SNL may not be news, but it is a heck of a lot funnier than your sarcastic remarks about the removal of statues as a response for an inquiry into the 58,000 American soldiers lost in Vietnam."
It was not meant to be funny. Quite telling that you find the SNL of today to actually be funny. It's not even a shadow of what it once was.
I thought Kate McKinnon's imitation of Rudy Giuliani was fricken' hilarious. There is something seriously wrong with anybody who didn't think it was funny.
I guess you're too young to remember when SNL was actually funny.
Humor is a subjective thing. It can bring a smile to one person and a frown to another. The only way to measure it is by how much laughter it creates.
The old Saturday Night Live and Laughin shows had little to compete against because there were only three networks. The writing was superb, and the casts became stars.
Now there is so much to compete for your viewing time. I must admit that the show had declined the last time I watched it ... but I still got some laughs.
Since I don't watch the show anymore, I can't say if it's not as funny as the early ones. Can anyone who doesn't watch the show honestly say otherwise?
And the current SNL is a steaming pile that even my dogs would ignore. They are nothing more than a leftist propaganda regurge...
Tim, and you know this because you don't watch it ?
ODG Carl. I've watched a few episodes in the last few years. Way more time than that defecation deserves. I do recall a time way back when really good parties on a Saturday night would always have a group gathered around the TV to watch. If they still do that today.. Well, I guess maybe there are some who do. The same people who think socialism is really swell. Tastes change I rekin.. But the day days of Belushi, Ackroyd, Chevy Chase, Jane Curtin and on and on, Eddie Murphy.. ::SIGH::: This group of derelicts today are not worthy of licking their shoes.
Laugh and the world laughs with you,
Weep and you weep alone.,
For this sad old earth
must borrow it's mirth
nd has troubles enough of it's own.
I think Kenan and Kate are pretty talented and can be very funny and some of the others have their funny moments (including Leslie Jones when her character is mad), but I think the writing is very uneven from week to week. I think it is the writing that has gone downhill more than the performers. Sometimes the subject matter is just plain unfunny to me. But there are some skits that get me laughing hard.....just not that many...that's the problem. The subject matter tends to be much more openly racey than it used to be. That doesn't make it funnier to me. it usually does the opposite. Resorting to racey humor is a sign of a lack of creativity imo.
The strong left bias is obvious, but Trump sets himself up for these skits with his behavior and I, therefore, don't feel sorry for him at all. A lot of what they make fun of is his character/behavior/suspected racism/shadiness as opposed to just policy.
Did SNL have a left bias at the start? I say absolutely yes based on Chevy Chase's making fun of Gerald Ford:
"Turning the president into somewhat of a boob was done for Chase's personal political feelings, which was fine with the show's brass, the actor said.
'I thought, 'This [clumsiness] is funny and whatever I can do to get [Jimmy] Carter elected, by God I am going to do it.' And it helped a lot, Gerald told me that,' Chase said, adding "I was a very liberal Democrat at the time, and I have not changed much."
