I’ve been living without cable for the past few weeks, so as the DirectTV guy is setting up everything, I figured I’d go ahead and watch SNL on Hulu. I didn’t get to watch last night’s episode with Jamie Foxx, but my mom called me and told me it was hilarious, so I made sure to catch it this morning.
If you didn’t watch the episode, then be sure to check it out. Jamie Foxx is hilarious, but we already know that. If anything, from his career on my favorite classic sketch show, In Living Color, and his own show, The Jamie Foxx Show, we have known since the 90s that he is a seriously funny dude! So it was amazing to see him on SNL doing his thing and actin’ a fool.
They had a big selection of skits that were funny. A consistent theme throughout the night was game show parodies. The first game show was “Bitch What’s the Answer?” in which Foxx asks vague questions and wants the contestants, the bitches, to answer. It was pretty funny, but the second game show really caught my attention. It basically had Foxx, Thompson, and Pharoah as black contestants who couldn’t figure out the difference between Dylan McDermott and Dermott Mulroney. The whole joke was that black people think they are the same guys, but it was offensive in my opinion because the guys do have confusing simliar names and features.
The other sketches such as a Tree Pimp and even the J-Pop one was okay, but I never usually like that sketch. But Foxx looked pretty funny in his outfit. But the best outfit of the night? His hilarious take on Tyler Perry and Madea in a spoof of Alex Cross. That was hella funny! Major LOL moments.
Peep some of the sketches from below. Oh and in the Maine Justice skit we have a surprise visit from one of my favorite people. Want a hint? He’s a cast member of Always Sunny in Philly who stalks a waitress and he hosted the show in October 2011. Shouldn’t be too hard to figure out.
