Anna faris snl dating skit
Last year they invited Chevy Chase back to the Weekend Update desk. Mull it over as I begin my official recap…right after this apology to my Canadian friends for their inability to watch clips on Hulu. Anna Faris hosted this week, and well, Britney looked good, didn’t she? Some funny lines, but most of the really funny lines came via asides by Sudeikis. He also joked about supporting the surge since 1985, and a funny joke that almost slipped past the audience about lowering the earmark for governments to notify sex offenders whenever a child moves into their neighborhood! Faris and Kenan Thompson’s musical first date on a rowboat in the middle of the lake was just, well, um, silly.
Her monologue about being "a dumb blonde" was, well, a throwaway. Sudeikis again got to showcase his understated comedy skills, with a spit-take into his beer and a line earlier in the sketch: "Why don’t we cheers it up?
Tina Fey returned again for another dead-on takedown of Sarah Palin, and also Chris Parnell returned to the fold for a sketch. Tina Fey as Palin is almost too good, too, because it might make some dumb viewers convinced that they should vote for Palin just because of Fey — which, of course, completely misses the point of how completely overwhelmed the Alaska governor is trying to understand and grapple with the issues facing the Lower 48, as it were. They got in solid jokes about Palin mistaking more than 20 taxi drivers for Osama bin Laden, going to a movie called — "It was not about politics" — being disheartened by all of the foreigners at the United Nations, meeting world leaders such as Bono, "the King of Ireland," telling the Russians each morning "to shoo" from Alaska shores, and even getting her own "Nicholas Fein-style" ramble into incompetence. Take the first post-monologue sketch, in which Faris and Jason Sudeikis drop off another couple (Bobby Moynihan and Casey Wilson) after a double-date and deconstruct what went wrong at their dinner, noting all of the mishaps they made. Chris Parnell had returned for a presidential debate sketch, playing moderating PBS anchor Jim Lehrer. But this sketch really belonged to Darrell Hammond’s impersonation of a crazed John Mc Cain, offering to suspend their campaigns for three pie-eating contests, then for three town hall meetings in the nude, then for an all-out search for bin Laden. Into the homestretch we come, and Thompson is leading another sketch advertising "Googie Rene’s Slightly Stained Wedding Dress Basement." Thompson’s character likes to fake-swear a lot. Cold Open: Michael Bloomberg Message — Bloomberg makes a case for power washing and New York being the leader in all things, including Wall Street protests. Drake opened his “SNL” monologue by singing about how he’s constantly turned into memes. “It belongs to that hottie in the audience there,” the 35-year-old actor sang while talking about his heart. ‘s 2011 Halloween episode was the equivalent of that dude who shows up at a costume party in his street clothes and announces he’s dressed as himself.
