"Sloths" made me fall off the couch laughing the first time I saw it. It was simply astounding.

As I recall, the only sketch that Larry David got on the air the whole time that he was writing for SNL aired at 12:50 AM.

Did I ever tell you about the time Brasky took me out to go get a drink with him? Anyways, we go off lookin' for a bar and we can't find one. Finally, Brasky takes me into a vacant lot and says, "Here we are!" Well, we sat there for a year and a half. Sure enough, someone constructed a bar around us!

P. J. McGinty's!

That's right, that's right! Well, the day they opened it, we ordered a shot, drank it and then burnt the place to the ground. Brasky yelled over the roar of the flames, "Always leave things the way you found them!"

List needs the polar bear sketch from episode Dave Duchovny hosted.

I noticed that, too.

Of course, it may be because I disabled Java on this computer.

F*CK YOU, ORACLE

the first "bad doctor"  was always my favorite 12:50 sketch.
 
2013-01-16 03:42:38 PM  
Can't check at work, was "Jimmy Tango's Fat Busters" a last 10 minutes sketch? It feels like it was later on in that episode, and the funniest goddamn thing Jim Carrey did on that show.

my favorite from that list is the ferrell/vietnam sketch. an ensemble of random celebrities getting together in song with the punchline that it was just to get out of paying for dinner again was great.
 
2013-01-16 04:02:52 PM  
The Herlihy Boy conspicuously absent.

Was Bear City in the 10-to-1 slot? Because it should have been.

Boobies wins thread. Steve Martin managed to get involved in several "What? We've got ten minutes to fill with this two minute sketch? Uh, okay!" situations...
 
2013-01-16 04:24:15 PM  
Jimmy Tango's Fat Busters was indeed a last skit. Ride the snake.

19 doesn't hold a candle to Spirit Journey Formation Anniversary.
 
2013-01-16 04:26:47 PM  
I don't know about 'needing to fill air' considering on most nights, skits get cut, not added.

So just think about that... no matter how bad something is that made it to air, there was one or two more ready to go that were considered much worse.
 
2013-01-16 04:51:31 PM  
IIRC, Billy Crystal and Christopher Guest with the "I hate when that happens" bit was an off the cuff, short on time, go out there and do something kind of thing. Ooooh, that stings.

It's very odd to see Chris Parnell on the other side of the doctor's desk.

Please help me identify this sketch: a coke addict gets dragged to a lame party where he's made to participate in a silly improv game that involves chanting nonsense words. His friends think they're helping distract him from doing drugs, but after awhile he's like, "Screw this, I'm gonna do some coke," which he does (off-camera). When he comes back to the game, totally high, he's now into it and starts going crazy with the nonsense chanting.

I too, have a SNL last 10 minute sketch that I've been trying to track down for a while. I believe it had Will Forte in it, and I think it was the last sketch of the night. Some scientists had come up with a machine to enlarge people or something, and somehow they enlarged a bear to the size of a building. But the bear started to attack. To combat the bear, they enlarged a lumberjack. And then I think the bear started to rape the lumberjack or something. It was an insane sketch, and I'm pretty sure I didn't dream it. Any ideas?
 
2013-01-16 05:16:47 PM  
I would like SNL a lot more if they attempted more absurd sketches (even if they failed) instead of doing yet another The View or other talk show parody. No cares how good your Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar impressions are because no one cares about them period.

THIS! After all of these years, I still remember that sketch and the one where he was the lifeguard for the hot tub.
 
2013-01-16 05:24:09 PM  
The Bill Brasky sketch is the only one of those I've seen. Wait, I take that back, I don't think I ever saw the first one.

This one gets my vote (I think it was in the last 10 minutes).

Is it just me or isn't that pretty much a ripoff of everything Rathergood.com ever did?

I've seen this, too. It was actually a giant hunter, so that's why you might not even been able to google it.

It was supposedly some cheesy late-night sci-fi movie, "Radioactive Bear." It had Robert DeNiro as the host.
 
2013-01-16 10:04:49 PM  
This one is my personal favorite. I swear it was the last sketch before the credits.

Drew Barrymore and Bill Hader as Peter O'Toole complaining about the lack of good Hollywood drunks.

There were two or three where Ana Gasteyer (maybe) is an rich East Coast wife who talks a mile a minute through the whole sketch, the most inane talk possible, and her husband, Phil Hartman (maybe) ends up killing himself. I haven't seen them since they aired, but the performances were awesome. There were several years in there where I'd watch one awful episode after another because maybe the last sketch would be bizarre.
 
2013-01-17 12:37:05 AM  
You will never pee in the absence of gravity.

/Pretty certain it was a 10 to 1 skit.

FlashHarry: mitchcumstein1: "Sloths" made me fall off the couch laughing the first time I saw it. It was simply astounding.

Like seriously.

The audience clearly has no idea how to interpret the aural and visual onslaught, with only a few moments evoking any audible laughter. The fact that something this bizarre made it on-air at all speaks to Lorne Michaels' implicit trust in The Lonely Island. Either that, or it speaks to a severe lack of better ideas inside the writers' room that week.

No, the audience just didn't have a frelling sense of humor that day. I mean, if you can't appreciate a Powerthirst-type joke, well, you suck.
 
2013-01-17 01:02:31 AM  
Also, I forgot how good that Russell and Tate skit was.
 
2013-01-17 02:33:33 AM  
Not a last 10 minutes of the show sketch, but I remember only seeing Massive Headwound Harry once on the day the show aired, and never again in reruns... No issue with music licenses, just very disturbing. I think Dana Carvey thought it was a bit of crime it got past the sensors.

Listening to JB Smoove do an interview today http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFnUBe2LIhQ , and he was disappointed with at least two skits he came up with never aired. One was a gangster type badass who wore two eyepatches... and another where the guy from Jackass solved crime by drinking suspect's urine, and consequently catching them for other crimes.
 
2013-01-17 08:37:52 AM  
Just remembered Charles Barkley Donkey Basketball Camp. Maybe it was funnier back then.

I've seen it in repeats when Comedy Central had it, I believe. Yeah, it was rather... odd.
