Did you happen to catch last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live?! Charlie Day was the host and Maroon 5 was the musical guest, so I knew the show was going to be a hit! If you’ve read my blog in the past, then you know that I always post the skits I found funny on the weekend’s episode of SNL. A lot of the shows are hits and misses, but in my opinion last night was a show filled with nonstop laughter.
Charlie Day is so hilarious on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, so I knew he was going to be a hit on SNL. I haven’t had much chance to see him in other roles aside from his character as Charlie Kelly on Always Sunny, but he did a pretty good job in Horrible Bosses and Going the Distance. Both of those movies gave him a chance to step away from his character on Always Sunny, but his role in Horrible Bosses had me thinking that he is actually that way in real life. Like he isn’t just being some random character; in his movies, interviews, and roles on screen he is just this hilarious little guy!
Last night he hosted SNL for the first time, and Danny Devito came out on stage to give him some props. The opening monologue was pretty funny, but the segment following it had my cracking up! It was only a matter of time before somebody spoofed the Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries marriage fallout, so who better to mock it than the crew over at Saturday Night Live. They did this hilarious wedding spoof and have the cast making fun of the entire Kardashian crew. Charlie played the divorce lawyer who was talking about how good the shrimp was, Andy Samberg did a hilarious impersonation of Kris Humphries, and Kristin Wigg was constantly popping up as Kim’s mom and saying how she was the fourth sister, not the mom, because she is so hot and had plastic surgery; it was a hot mess!
Following that skit was a hilarious Greek Gods skit that was too funny for words. Just seeing the guys portray these Greek Gods and the state of the Greek economy was hilarious! Charlie played the Dionysus and he was no help at all in trying to solve the financial problem of Greece. They even had a Greek God of music, Yani. LOL. I thought that skit was pretty solid, but I was so happy when they followed it with the CatchPhrase Comedy Tour Part 2. Awhile back they did this Comedy Central style promo for the Kings of CatchPhrase Comedy Tour. The commercial is so comical! But this time they brought it back, and Charlie Day was Dirk “Jack-Knife” Cane. His catch phrase was this stuttering “Jack-Knife” phrase, and it totally made fun of how comedians try to have these witty phrases.
There were some other great sketches last night, including a crime scene on the Seinfeld set, a dolphin-whisper style filming, Getting Freaky with Cee-Lo, and a skit making fun of the Dr. Oz Show. You can catch the entire episode on Hulu.com, but I’m going to post a few of the sketches I mentioned so you can get straight to the funny. The entire episode was hilarious, but these skits really stood out. Check them out!

Getting Freaky with Cee-Lo.
P.S. Seriously, Cee-Lo has some tiny hands! Have you ever noticed how tiny his hands are? Well J. Anthony Brown from the Tom Joyner Morning Show has, and a few months ago he did a hilarious song called “Cee-Lo’s Hands.” Check it out below this video.

It’s the middle of the week and the weekend feels like it’s right around the corner. Wednesday is one of my favorite days because Friday isn’t too far away. But it is also a great day of the week because so many great shows come on. A lot of great shows have returned this fall and some new shows have also popped up in the world of television. There is a lot out there to choose from, but there are some shows that are so worth watching.
If you’ve been reading my blog, then you know that I’m a television junkie. I love to just unwind from the stress of schoolwork and get lost in great comedy. I’m not a fan of dramatic shows such as Greys Anatomy (I hate that show) and a lot of the crime series. I’m a huge comedy buff, so I have to be able to laugh. When I’m not laughing, then I love watching reality shows on TLC. Sister Wives is actually a pretty good show and it’s crazy how he has those four wives and all them kids; it’s madness!
TLC has some pretty good programming, as well as Style, Bravo, Animal Planet, and of course HGTV. But when I’m not watching reality shows, then I’m laughing my butt off at situational-comedy, i.e. the sitcom. There are so many hilarious shows this Fall that you have to check out! Every episode always brings the funny with a heavy dosage of laughter. The fall television lineup for comedy this year is funnier than ever, especially with shows like Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Modern Family. I love the raw and raunchy comedy of Always Sunny, but I also enjoy the not-so-modern antics of the families on Modern Family. Both shows are so worth watching! So if you happen to be at home this evening, be sure to check out the new episode of Modern Family.
Luckily I have a DVR and never miss any episodes of my favorite shows. The funny thing is when my mom can’t record all her shows at once on the DVR in the living room or the one in her bedroom, then she asks me to put stuff on my DVR. We watch so much television that we have three HD DVR boxes in the house. It’s not like we watch the boob tube all day, but at night it’s nice to take a break from the madness of our hectic daily schedules and just get lost in comedy.
If you happen to be like me and love a good laugh in the evening, then check out some of my favorite television shows on this Fall that are bound to give you a heavy dosage of pure laughter.
1.) Always Sunny in Philadelphia (Thurs Nights on FX) 2.)Workaholics (Tues Nights on Comedy Central)
3.) Modern Family (Wed Nights on ABC) 4.) Up All Night (Wed Nights on ABC) 5.) The Office (Thurs Nights on NBC)
6.) Parks & Recreation (Thurs Nights on NBC) 7.) The League (New season airs on FX Oct. 10, but it’s worth checking out the old seasons!)

LMFAO has been one of my favorite groups since they first stepped on the scene and their revival of the Melbourne shuffle is becoming a cult movement. A lot of people in America were unaware of what the Melbourne shuffle was, but thanks to LMFAO it’s becoming a mainstream phenomenon. It’s hard to resist the desire to shuffle everyday, you just can’t help it! Plus, it’s a great workout! My ringtone is the Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO and every time my Blackberry begins buzzing, my mom and I start shufflin’. It’s a great bonding moment!
Shufflin’ is so much fun and I wish I had a shufflebot. Every time I go to a club or somewhere that requires me to get pumped and act a fool, I’d have a shufflebot by my side. That costume is probably hot, so I wouldn’t want to be the one wearing it. You’ve got to admit though, wouldn’t it be cool to have a shufflebot? It would ensue so many laughs and it would turn a dull dance floor into a parade of dancing maniacs. That’s the stuff dreams are made of!
The shufflebot has become one of my favorite “mascot” characters, but I’d love to see the Green Man from Always Sunny in Philly challenge it to a dance battle. The Green Man always cracks me up. You can’t help but laugh and wonder why this man is dressed in a green man suit. What’s the purpose? I still haven’t quite figured out the purpose, because I think it’s main mission is to pump up the crowd and create laughs. If you see a Green Man at a football game or walking down the street, you’d probably go take pictures and do a little dance with him.
The two mascots are completely different but they belong together. The perfect party would consist of epic dance tunes, a shufflebot, and a designated Green Man. If more people had these random characters at their parties and night clubs, then I’d probably go out every single weekend. Life is too short to live it dull and afraid of off the wall humor. You’ve got to get out there and have a blast! I know the moment I turn 21, there is no looking back! I will probably be going to all the clubs I really like and also traveling the world checking out new hot destinations and music venues worldwide. I should make it my mission to promote the shufflebot and the Green Man suit. I won’t stop until every party has a shufflebot and a green man dancing in an epic battle of the decade. Sounds groovy, right?
P.S. I’m not high, I don’t even smoke! Haha.This post is completely random, but hey it’s what I do. I have conversations like this on a daily basis, my mind is an interesting place….
Always Sunny in Philadelphia Season 3. Episode 2 “Freak Show” Excerpt: The Green Man!
I may often have a hard time deciding on my favorite movie, but when it comes to deciding my favorite television shows; that is an answer that comes easy. My top two favorite television shows are Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Both of those shows and my obsession with them can be attributed to my personality. If you don’t find Always Sunny and Curb funny, then you probably won’t like me. I can sometimes be outlandish, neurotic, sassy, and often off in my own little eccentric world. Always Sunny in Philly satisfies my hunger for raw idiotic comedy and Curb is the perfect comedy choice for neurotic antics.
If you’ve been watching the 8th season of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm, then you probably saw the third episode that aired on Sunday night. In the episode Larry as usual got himself into a series of social mishaps. Larry David is always finding a way to utterly piss off people and have an neurotic approach to social protocol. He doesn’t follow the rules and he doesn’t play nice, he’s a “social assassin.”
I had never heard the term “social assassin,” but I must say it’s awesome! A social assassin is someone (especially Larry David) who doesn’t take crap from anyone and isn’t afraid to knock down social protocols. Larry doesn’t care what people might think about him. If he has a problem with the minor details that makeup a social interaction, then he will bring attention to it. In the episode that aired on Sunday, Larry called Suzie out on the sound she makes after sipping a refreshing drink, he told this man’s wife to stop saying LOL in verbal conversation, and he got into some drama with Funkhouser.
Larry David is the perfect example of a “social assassin” and in some ways it’s not a bad thing. I often wonder if people are actually as abrasive and neurotic as Larry David, but it’s worse when you find yourself agreeing with his antics. A majority of the time I agree with Larry, he’s pretty, pretty good(if you watch Curb, then you know how that’s supposed to be read.)
The art of being a social assassin is precise. You have to be able to meticulously break down every moment in social interactions and call out the things that bother you. The premise of a social assassin, in the case of Larry David, is the question “Why?” Every moment in life is countered with a “why?” Larry often finds himself wondering why people act a certain way. He’s on a mission to call out people on their faults and those basic social interactions that are protocol to a normal human being, but an insult to Larry.
I wouldn’t want to be called a “social assassin,” yet Larry takes it as a compliment. I as well do find that people are usually taken aback and impressed by those who are bold in their approach to life. There have been plenty of times when people complimented me on my daring personality. I’m never afraid to say my mind, I just chose moments that I find worth bringing to attention. I’m not going to get pissed off and analyze why someone sips their drink a certain way. But I may get annoyed by their dull story and conversation that doesn’t have an end in sight. I’m far from being deemed a “social assassin.” My sassy personality and my instinctive nature to be sometimes socially and politically incorrect may be daring, but I leave the social assassinations up to Mr. Larry David.
