Pete Davidson told us about his favorite sketch which is this hilarious one from Chappelle’s Show in which Dave Chappelle breaks down that everything looks better in slow motion. Mundane things like doing laundry, going to the club, or using the bathroom. Slow motion makes most things better. Read More
Saturday Night Live has announced who we can expect to see on its final episodes of 2013, and it includes familiar faces. Paul Rudd is up first, slated to host the December 7 episode with musical guest One Direction (cue screaming girls). Then John Goodman returns to host the December 14 show with musical guest Kings Of Leon. And finally, SNL has Jimmy Fallon once again hosting its episode before Christmas break with Justin Timberlake as the musical guest.
Right off the bat, we’re excited to see all three hosts back on the show. In fact, we’re really pumped to see Goodman back, who’s been absent from the show over the past few years after hosting 12 times between 1989 and 2001 (so often that it became the butt of jokes). And though it’ll be weird seeing Timberlake not host an SNL episode, we’re sure he’ll be in plenty (if not most) of the skits along with the soon-to-be Tonight Show host.
Update: Despite Taran Killam’s Instagram post insinuating so, The Lonely Island did NOT end up appearing in tonight’s episode of Saturday Night Live. Not exactly sure why the comedy trio were mentioned in Taran’s picture (maybe one of the guys directed tonight’s “Blockbuster” short?), but no cameo after all. We’ll keep you posted on any developments of this, but feel free to read our original article/reasoning as to why a guest appearance from The Lonely Island would’ve made sense below.
With Lady Gaga pulling double duty tonight on Saturday Night Live, it seemed likely that a few “surprise” guests would make an appearance. Now it’s safe to say that one of those surprises will come from The Lonely Island.
Taran Killam essentially let the cat out of the bag with a post on his Instagram that included the text “Been awake since 6:30am. Almost at 24 hours. Still shooting. Damn you Lonely Island.” Of course, SNL and NBC are staying mum (likely trying to keep it as a surprise). It’s also unclear as to how much screen time Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone will get on SNL tonight. However, Killam’s picture makes it seems pretty certain that we’ll at least be getting a new Lonely Island video.
While we can only assume that Gaga will be in the video in some fashion, this wouldn’t be the first time the singer has teamed up with Lonely Island (thanks to her and Justin Timberlake, we learned about the golden rule in three ways). It’s also not the first time that The Lonely Island has popped up on SNL since Samberg left the show, debuting their song with Adam Levine during the episode he hosted.
SNL is back people! Tina Fey and Arcade Fire are the host and musical guests set to kick off season 39 this Saturday Night at 11:30pm on NBC. We’re super excited about the show’s return because, of all the things that happened while they were on break. We also can’t wait to see how this season looks without departing cast members, new cast members, as well as how Cecily Strong looks sitting next to the soon-departing Seth Meyers in the Weekend Update chair.
We have a special My Favorite Sketch for you this week. Why? Because we decided to ask comedians for their input on what sketches they can’t get enough of. We’re going to kick things off with comedian/Guy Code star Chris DiStefano. Chris picked a classic one from Saturday Night Live that stars the late, great Chris Farley. Read More
