WhyteRaven74: Know what I've never understood about SNL? Lorne Michaels hates it when people start improvising. But he keeps getting people from Second City, which is an all improv theater.
DKinMN: No, it isn't.
azmoviez: urban.derelict:Sure she's pretty but how many Gilly sketches did you need to watch? The only recurring character of hers that I enjoyed was the "just kidding" character that one-uped everyone.
WhyteRaven74: DKinMN: No, it isn't.From Second City's website "The Second City is the leading brand in improv-based sketch comedy"
howlinmadmurphy: Though Gilly was completely awful, Wiig was one of my favorite cast members ever. Ive never understood the hate on fark for her.
MagSeven: Subby, Ms. Wiig was a gem that retired from SNL before I was sick of her. Therefore, she is golden in my book. To many SNL jagoffs don't know when to walk away. She took off right when I thought she was the funniest. Bridesmaids was the shiat as well. So eat a bag of dicks subby. Like a sack of french bread. One long footlong cock at a time. Then when you finish we'll talk comedy again. (I'll recommend: The State, the Kids in the hall, Tenacious D, Upright Citizens Brigade, Mr. Show, Screwdoored Horatio's and Exit 57.
azmoviez: The only recurring character of hers that I enjoyed was the "just kidding" character that one-uped everyone.
buntz: But maybe stop following a 'formula' (political opening, some LONG skits, video (Sandberg or commerical parody), musical guest, news, etc etc)And keep in mind I haven't watched regularly in years but this is what it seems like.
KrispyKritter: Lorne Michaels is the key thing that should have been replaced long ago. We've all suffered through way too many years of suck watching SNL just hoping for that rare funny skit to come along. Lorne must give head better than a $2000 hooker. Overpaid and incompetent: you're very American for a Canadian, Lorne.
carlb: WhyteRaven74: DKinMN: No, it isn't.From Second City's website "The Second City is the leading brand in improv-based sketch comedy"(my bolding; note that it doesn't say, "completely improvised")There are improv elements to a lot of their bits, but some of them are pretty thoroughly scripted. When you've got to take a show from written word to live broadcast in less than a week, having performers who are comfortable with that sort of fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants acting is a real plus.
Malcolm_Sex: Does fark even have funny or clever headlines anymore or are they all just troll bait?
The Banana Thug: howlinmadmurphy: Though Gilly was completely awful, Wiig was one of my favorite cast members ever. Ive never understood the hate on fark for her.Ditto. She is a great cast member, far funnier than Fey or Poehler.
joshiz: SNL needs more Jay Pharaoh and less stupid musical theater 'skits'.
4seasons85!: I think the reason SNL sucks many times is not because the writers and actors arent funny I think they are forced to do skits that will not offend many people so their comedy is restricted. I wonder what an all out comedic show with no restrictions would be like. I remember reading somewhere that it took a long time to convince people to show the "dick in a box" skit because it was referencing a penis. They have to play it safe for the censors.
