David Spade doing the Hollywood Minute. It was so funny hearing him do those mean celebrity jokes!   ;D

Dana Carvey imitating the first President Bush.

Some classics:
Land Shark
Killer Christmas Trees
Killer Bees
And the one with the giant lobsters.

I always like Emily Latella (Gilda Radner). She always called Chevy Chase "Chedder Cheese".  Some of the ones that I can remember is "Sax and Violins" on t.v., and "Busting school children".  "Oh, that's different. Never mind."

Then there is Point/Counter Point- "Jane, you ingorant slut."

But that one that truly got me was when Jane Curtain ripped open her shirt. (I think that had something to do with the fact that I used some "leafy substance" at the time.  ;) )

Eddie Murphy - Mr. Robinson's Neighbourhood

Chris Kattan and Will Ferrel - The Butabi Brothers

Jon Lovitz - The Liar

Billy Crystal and Christopher Guest - "I Hate When that Happens"

Billy Crystal - Fernando "You Look Mahvelous"

There was one from 1984 that always cracked me up where the idea was the Three Stooges teached a karate class.  Joe Piscopo played Curly Joe, and in one scene, his pants fell down, which wasn't part of the script.  That just killed me laughing  ;D

Totally agree about the fake commercials, those were the best!  I especially like when Jane Curtin did them, she's a natural.

I liked mostly everything Gilda Radner did. 

Eddie Murphy's Mister Robinson's Neighborhood and I'm Gumby Damnit!

Ah, yes.  Martin Short as "Nathan Thurm," the sweaty, chain-smoking lawyer.

Also, there was one about 10 years ago with Nicolas Cage as an expectant father who was debating with his wife what to name their unborn son, and every time she'd suggest a name he'd find the lamest reason why other kids could make fun of that name. Then the doorbell rings, and Rob Schneider (as a deliveryman) is standing at the door. "Package for Mr. Asswipe," he says. Nicolas Cage gives him a dirty look and says, "No, that's Oz-WEE-pay."  ;D ;D ;D

I've seen that--Paul Simon seemed kind of bitter.  ;D

Also, the infamous "Jingleheimer Junction" skit from a few years back was really funny.

http://planetwill.jt.org/media/video/98-09-26-jingle.jpg

Alec Baldwin was one of the funniest guest hosts. He had a recurring skit where he played a man named "Pete Sweaty," and he would go on some local public radio show hosted by two middle-aged ladies (I think Ana Gastmeyer was one of them) to talk about his receipes for his "Sweaty Balls" or his "Sweaty Weiner." Inevitably one of the ladies would sample his concoction and say, "Mmmm...your Sweaty Weiner feels so good in my mouth..."

He was also on the "Inside The Actor's Studio" spoof, and he did a dead-on impression of Charles Nelson Reilly (most well-known for his regular appearances on the 1970's game show "Match Game") that had me falling out of my chair.

There was a more recent one in which Paul Simon and his agent are auditioning dancers, and these two geeky guys are doing awful pantomime to all his hits.  It was hysterical, but I can't recall the actors who did it.  They did one like that with Sting also.




I might be insane, but I hate Martin Short. 

I'm a big fan, but I wouldn't begrudge anybody for hating Martin Short, especially after the Jimminy Glick Show.  I found Glick hysterical in a perverse way because it annoyed the cr@p out of me at the same time!

That reminds me of another Short character, the songwriter Irving C. Cohn.  He was a spoof on the old Tin Pan Ally guys.  Cohn boasted of writing over ten thousand songs...but they all sounded exactly alike:  "Gimme a C, a bouncy C!"
You might still be insane anyway.

Yeah, yeah, I remember that!  I liked that one because it was just kinda...weeeeird!


Ah, yes.  Martin Short as "Nathan Thurm," the sweaty, chain-smoking lawyer.


Thanks, "Nathan Thurm," that was the name! 
Around the time Short was doing that sketch, I saw the president of Phillip Morris on TV, and he was talking just like Nathan Thurm.  I think it was "60 Minutes" or something.  The reporter was asking him how he felt about his product making all those people sicke, and the guy was like: "Sick?  What do you mean 'sick'?  I smoke, my wife smokes, and my children smoke.  We're not sick, nobody's sick!  You can't prove smoking makes anybody sick..."  All the while, the PM guy was taking copious drags of his cigarette!
Oh yeah, another thing Thurm used to say:
"Is it me, or is it him?"

I remember Nathan Thurm from another skit where Billy Crystal and Christopher Guest were the "Minkman Brothers," who were the leading producers of novelties (like fake dog poo and whoopie cushions), and Mike Wallace (played by I forget who) was investigating their claims that shoddy knockoffs of their products were being produced in sweatshops in Third World countries. Nathan Thurm was representing the companies whose novelties were made in sweatshops, and every time Mike Wallace would pin him down he'd say, "I know that! How could I be so ignorant as to not know that?"

One SNL I absolutely HATED was with MC Hammer as both host and musical guest...There were better rappers around than Hammer(head)...

And I still have to wonder why the people who get the hosts for SNL went with Jeff Gordon when they got a NASCAR driver to host..IMO I don't think he was all that funny..but the man is POPULAR which is why SNL probably picked him.

Basically anything with Will Farrelll is gold. His Robert Goulet, "Behind The Music" with the Blue Oyster Cult ( More Cowbell is a classic).

it was from the second episode I believe...the skit was, he was suppose to come out on stage in the turkey constume and sing one of his songs (i forget which one..I think it was "The 59th street bridge song"), but he sings two lines and then gets really angry and walks off stage where he is confronted by Lorne Michaels.  He tells Lorne that it just doesnt feel right that he has to sing this song dressed as a turkey, but Lorne convinces him otherwise. 

I think that was it.

Anyone remember the Church Chat with the "Church Lady" (Dana Carvey) right after the Jimmy Swaggart scandal?
???
She had Jimmy Swaggart and Pat Robertson as guests (not the real JS and PR, if only!, that would have been awesome.)  That was my favorite Church Chat.
Swaggart (sobbing): I let down my people, I let down my family, I let down my church, and I let down my Lord...
Church Lady: Didn't we let something else down, too?
Swaggart: What?
Church Lady: Our pants!!!
Swaggart: (sobbing outburst)
Robertson (simpering): Now, Church Lady, I...I think you're being a little hard on Reverend Swaggart, now....
Church Lady: Now, Patrick, hush up, give Mr. Mouth a rest!  Now, Jimmy, let me help you atone...(takes his hand)...Now you're back in the that motel room with that tramp, litt-el Jimmy out of the pulpit, picture a pair of round bulbous buttocks gyrating, they're just gyrating away, back and forth...Are you picturing it?
Swaggart: Y-Yes.
Church Lady: (slapping Swaggart's hand) STOP!!!

That's an inexact rendition of the banter from memory.  Actually, I think it's when Robertson starts to say, "Now, Church Lady, I was more of a tele-journalist than a televangelist..." that Church Lady tells him to "Give Mr. Mouth a rest!"
Also Church Lady leads them in singing "If You're Happy and You Know It," in which Swaggart sings a sobbing solo, and Robertson sings a giggling solo.  Anyway....

Also, the sketch from the late '80s, "Chicken make lousy house pet," has been on my mind since the new panic over the Asian bird flu!

I remember that one.  He started singing "Still Crazy After All These Years"  After the first few lines of the song, he stopped and began to tell how humiliating it was standing there singing in a big turkey outfit and I think talking about how he didn't remember agreeing to this part of the act.

One of my favorites was the skit of MTV (Julia Louise-Dreyfuss as Nina Blackwood) interviewing the rock group, the Garage men, with Jim Belushi, Brad Hall and Gary Kroeger.  They didn't have an album yet but they did have a  video. "We don't want to sell records, we just want to have chicks.."

Another favorite was the skit were Joe Piscopo walks into the mensroom stall, sits down and begins to sing "Under the Boardwalk"  The other three guys in the stalls next to him begin to harmonize with him.

Who remembers the ad spoof "Handi-Off"? It was a product for dissolving extra fingers. You know how you've hated that unsiightly sixth finger all your life?
There's a part where a guy says to Victoria Jackson, "Pick you up at six?," and she raises her hand and proudly announces, "Let's make it five!"
And don't forget about new "Toe-Riffic"!

Yes, i've seen that one too. Kinda disgusting, but funny. :P



Another ad spoof I liked came at the time of the oat bran craze. A cereal called "Colon Blow." Poking fun of Total brand cereal's long-running catch, "It would take four bowls of Brand X to get the fibre in just one bowl of Total,"  the ad spoof went, "it would take 750 bowls of your brand to equal the fibre in just ONE bowl of Colon Blow"!  And it shows a guy on a mountain of cereal bowls eating a bowl of Colon Blow.
And don't forget about new "Super Colon Blow...."
;D

I think the announcer was asking the man eating the cereal how many bowls equaled the fiber content of one Colon Blow bowl; the man kept guessing small numbers until the announcer said, "Not even close...it'd take more than 30,000 bowls of your brand to equal the fiber in just ONE bowl of Colon Blow!" And the mountain of cereal bowls pushed up from underneath the man, who was sitting in the chair. "And to get that much fiber," the announcer continued, "you'd have to eat ten bowls a day, every day, for 8 1/2 years!"
Man (from on top of the mountain): "Wow! I'm convinced! I guess Colon Blow must be the highest-fiber cereal on the market?"
Announcer: "Not anymore. There's Super Colon Blow. And it'd take over two million bowls of your cereal to equal the fiber content in one bowl of Super Colon Blow."
(And the mountain of cereal bowls grew even higher.)

Billy Crystal and Christopher Guest in the famous "I hate when that happens" sketch used to get pretty disgusting with the descriptions.  "You wanna talk about some pain, the other day I took that, uh, miniature replica of the empire state building and shoved it up my nose, just to see how far it would go...," and so forth.  Too bad it was on network TV, otherwise they could have brought all manner of private parts into the banter!

I just thought of another one that I kinda enjoyed...but it wasn't a commercial spoof. Is anyone familiar with the Stewart Smalley character? I didn't see it, but I do know that the character, played by Al Franken, was part of a SNL skit entitled "Daily Affirmation With Stewart Smalley," from the early 90's. The routine was later spoofed on a real series of radio commercials for Glendale Federal Bank until they went out of business in 1998. His tag line, "I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggone it, people like me!", was a signature line.

Hey Jeff, it's cool you're into those too! I was kinda surprised to run across this post (in a good way). :)

I remember there was about a half hour block of those airing on SNL back around 1993. My dad told me how funny they were - we each in fact, taped our own copies of it at the same time (I still have mine. The other is probably in our garage somewhere too).

They mostly featured the "classic original" cast of Chevy, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd etc, so I'm guessing they were from the late 70's (meaning they were already classic by that time) and probably not all shown at once.

Off the top of my head, I also liked the "Chia Head" one. ;D

I remember when Christopher Lee hosted, and they did these great horror movie preview parodies. I'll never forget Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Rogers, The Thing That Wouldn't Leave, and The Island Of Lost Luggage. They kill me every time!

The things SNL got away with back in the 70s, they couldn't do today. I remember John Belushi doing an ad for "Rape Rap". His schtick was about the rapist being traumatized by what he's done, so there's a hotline to talk him out of his panic. Really sick, hilarious stuff.

Michael O Donoghue, an early writer for the show who also wrote for National Lampoon, had a pitch black, funereal sense of humor. He did Mr. Mike's bedtime tales, Mr. Bill, and a number of other sketches. One was about a babysitter, played by Buck Henry, who couldn't stand the crying baby. To quiet the infant down and settle his shattered nerves, he picked the infant up and ran his head across the bars of his crib, back and forth.

Buck also played a lecherous uncle who constantly photographed his little girl nieces, played by Gilda Radnor and Laraine Newman, whenever their backsides or frontsides were exposed. The poor girls thought it was only a game!

These days SNL is too overly politicized and full of itself. I prefer MADTV, especially the early episodes.

My favourite SNL period was the old days of Eddie Murphy, Joe Piscopo and Tim Kazurinsky (who is perhaps best known as Sweechuck from the 'Police Academy' films)

I loved Eddie Murphy in Mr. Robinson's Neighbourhood.  He'd come in through the fire escape, and tell us boys and girls about the latest crime he'd just committed ;D

Since then, I've not really liked a group as a whole, but certain skits:

Dana Carvey and Kevin Nealon as Hanz and Franz: "We're gonna pump *clap* you up!"
Mike Myers and Dana Carvey in Wayne's World
Chris Kattan and Will Ferrell as Doug and Steve Butabi



Yeah, Dana Carvey did a lot of funny stuff on SNL...he was a crackup. I especially like his imitation of political figures. ;D

I haven't been too impressed with SNL since Tina Fey left. The only episodes I have liked this season was the one hosted by Chris "Ludacris" Bridges and the one where Drew Barrymore hosted (That dakota fanning/Abigail Breslin skit was hilarious!)

Having said that - Sat's episode with Shia LaBeouf (sp?) wasn't funny but had one of the best skits since the Jingleheimer Junction skit featuring Cameron Diaz.  This is the skit with kids show where the kids have the first letter of their names on their shirts. U, C & K and they have a new friend Frank that they are trying to get to the front of the line.... friiggin hilarious!

So the newest skit to add to SNL hall of fame is the commercial from the family who own the mattress king store. The opened a new store called Sofa King and let me tell you- this skit was  SOFA KING HILARIOUS! Hate to admit it but it took me a minute to get the joke but wow... wonder how it got past the censors!

The other sketch I liked was when Buckwheat was shot. Joe Piscopo was Ted Koppel and they kept going back to him with the news and he was interviewing people asking if they knew he was shot. When they didn't, he would keep showing the clip of it. Then they were doing a story on his killer and then he was shot.

Joe Piscopo as David Hartman. There was a sketch where he said that the producers found a clip of one of his early works and it was a clip of Bullwinkle.

But we are REALLY ugly.

IMAGES by Tyrone Green
Dark and lonely on a summer night
Kill my landlord, kill my landlord
The watchdog barkin', do he bite?
Kill my landlord, kill my landlord
I slip in the window
I break his neck
Then his house I start to wreck.
Got no reason, what the heck.
Kill my landlord, kill my landlord.
"C"-"I"-"L"-"L" my landlord.

What about the FUNNIEST commercial ever-the Change Bank?
We give you change that meets your particular change needs...if you want to change $20, we're not going to give you 400 nickels...unless that meets your particular change needs!
We can exchange your old $10 bill for a nice $10 bill for a birthday card-often the same business day!
How do we make any money doing this? 
The answer is simple...volume!
And the guy was so spot-on, he looked like every guy in every jacka$$ customer service commercial running at the time!  ;D
Every time I see that I LMAO!
**And Handi-off and Toe-Riffic, Victoria Jackson is great-"You've tried slamming them off...but there's no hiding it, you've got EXTRA FINGERS..." 
That tingle tells you it's working!
**Happy fun ball is a classic-and as a pharmacist it also reminds me of a pharmaceutical ad as was stated earlier.
**How about when the real John McLaughlin came on with Dana Carvey playing John McLaughlin on the McLaughlin Group parody-"Eleanor, Gee I think you're Swell-e-nor??"  I am surprised the real JMcL never used that one on his show!
So many to mention...but these are some of my faves!  :)

And here's the one with Eddie Murphy singing the "Buckwheat Sings" compilation (which I enjoyed)...
http://s125.photobucket.com/albums/p75/thebeaf/?action=view&current=BuckwheatSings.mp4

The third song snippet, which puts question marks on the screen, appears to be a spoof of "Bette Davis Eyes" sung unintelligibly.

I couldn't find the whole thing on Youtube anywhere; they must've deleted it. :-\\

Eddie Murphy was especially gifted.  A great comic.  He was a good actor too.

When he got to run his own show it was over-the-top macho man all the time, such as his "Quick" character in "Harlem Nights."  Then the next thing I knew, he was doing the Nutty Professor stuff.  Well, that was the end of him!

Mr. Bill was great because their was a reaction amongst the older generation against the sadism of the whole thing.  One problem, every one of those men would be lying if Mr. Bill wasn't the first thing he did with a piece of clay.  Well, the second thing.  The first is fashioning an enormous phallus.  The next is bringing forth a homunculus to torture.

That is what you do isn't it?  What are you people, freaks?  What do you mean you never done that?

(1) This one is easy. Hands down: William Shatner's "Get a life!"
I can watch this twenty times straight and laugh just as hard at (not with) the trekkies.
After fielding endless questions at another trekkie convention, such as "In episode 256 where you opened the safe to get the secret Zirbolian formula...what was the combination to the safe?", Shatner loses it.
"...This was just a lark I did for a few years to earn some cash and you people have turned it into a colossal waste of time! You...Johnny...you must be 30. Have you ever kissed a girl?" Johnny (Lovitz, wearing Spock ears) bows head in humiliation and shame.

(2) Most SNL Shorts. Kind of hit and miss, but ones such as Natalie Portman's rap, Lazy Sunday or Motherlover make me glad I tuned in to see.

(3) There are too many skits to name all fav's, but the effort Jan Hooks and Nora Dunn put into their early '90's cornball Christmas party medley was superb and I loved it.

(4) Weekend Update

(5) There was a Burt Reynolds skit in the '70's mocking Deliverance, where some sexually questionable guys are camping and excitedly anticipating if the stalker might potentially "make me squeal like a pig".

My favorite cast were the collection that performed from the late '80's to the mid '90's.

Guest host Tom Brady along with the cast demonstrating just how subjective our legal system can be. This is among my top 20 fav skits ever.
