Last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live was hosted by the hilarious Jason Segel. I’m a big fan of How I Met Your Mother, so every week I’m cracking up at the silly antics of Jason and the cast. He was always pretty funny in I Love You Man and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, so I’m sure the new Muppets movie will be a delightful treat. I’m a big fan of The Muppets, so I’m probably going to go see it.
The Muppets stopped by during Jason’s monologue, but I just wasn’t feeling it. So I changed the channel back to Donald Glover: Weirdo standup on Comedy Central. That was a pretty good comedy special, so I’m glad I have DVR and was able to record SNL. After watching his standup, I switched back to SNL and basically was able to fast forward to the funny skits.
Last night’s episode only had probably two skits I didn’t find funny, well I suppose 3 if you include that monologue in the opening. They use a script, so I guess it could count as a skit. So, I didn’t really find it too funny, but the other skits I did find funny had me cracking up. They did a pretty funny skit where they tried to find Regis Philbin replacements. I laughed super hard when Fred Armisen did this dead on impersonation of George Lopez. I just couldn’t stop laughing! I had never seen someone do such a great impersonation of George Lopez and his bravado, it was awesome!
I thought that was so funny, but I’m not going to lie, for some reason I laughed so hard at the Kemper-Pedic skit. I can’t even begin to explain that, so man…just watch for yourself! Oh and they also brought back the Red Flag commercial, so peep my other article on that episode at the bottom of this post. Some other skits worth watching are the New Jack Swing Thanksgiving Edition, Seducing Women Through Chess, Retirement Party, and Andre the Giant Gets an Ice Cream. The New Jack Swing skit was pretty funny because it was hilarious seeing them take New Jack Swing terminology and thanksgivingerize it. Yup, I sure did just make up a word. LOL. Having that thanksgiving spin on it is was made the skit funny.
Now the Seducing Women Through Chess was a digital short and that was funny because it looked so cheesy like an 80s lesson on macking. Andy Samberg played such a loser who couldn’t seduce women through chess, checkers, or anything! I will say I laughed the hardest when Jason Segel came onto the set as a prostitute and shanked Andy; his voice was so deep and manly, which is what made it so funny! Jason had a lot of good roles on the episode, including his performance as Andre the Giant ordering Ice Cream. It was so simple yet I found it funny. Also, the Retirement Party was a funny skit too only because Kristin Wigg kept yelling at everyone. Check that one out too if you’d like.
Jason Segel (in my opinion,) did a great job on last night’s episode. Also Florence and the Machine had a pretty good performance, and Florence Welch actually made some cameo’s in a few of the sketches. So be sure to check out some of the skits below, and don’t forget The Muppets movie is coming out November 23rd. It looks cute and funny, so I might have to go check it out.
