The Baron: 'Amazing time savers' with mile Myers and heather locklear.

It's a spoof on infomercials, with a wickedly racist host unintentionally bashing all these races.
"Just look how user friendly it is. Even a Native American could work it"


I forgot about that one when I posted earlier. I laughed until I cried.

"Usually this 'easy directions' stuff is a lie...like the Holocaust!" *RING*

And it just dawned on me that the look Mike Myers had on his face was the same look he had when Kanye West said "George Bush does not like black people!"

I remember a sketch in the 90's that had everyone reenacting Little Women. Winona Rider was the host. Chris Farley fell through some ice and went on one of the classic Farley screaming rants. I've never been able to find that skit.

Food, Sex, or Cars. Never been able to find that online, but that was the only one (besides Stefon) that made me almost collapse a lung from laughing so hard.

Well, that and Jingenheimer Junction with Cameron Diaz. That was pretty farkin hilarious.

I like the Tom Hanks bits with Damon Wayons "but hey!" and the Tom Hanks skit where he wanted everyone to try the spoiled milk and sit in the squeaky chair.

Firstly, they are called "skits", not "sketches".

Secondly, there are no favorite SNL sketches, only favorite SNL fake commercials:

Stevie Nicks Burrito
theatre class Puppets (Hader)
Shweaty Balls
"Who's on top?"

Wake Up & Smile!

/and that one with Mike Myers that was a sort of parody of a Japanese show, probably too insensitive for modern times
//all I remember is the recurring opening of a door, and Myers saying "Now you must fight the bear!"

It's odd how often people you don't expect to be funny (a football player, in this instance) end up killing.

Lothar of the Hill People not given a mention?

2013-09-28 04:31:14 AM  
The funniest ones are always the filmed skits. The fake ads, Smigel's TV Funhouse, Lonely Island, etc... I will laugh at those.

I can't remember the last time I've genuinely laughed at any of the live skits. I think I was 14...
 
2013-09-28 04:36:50 AM  
Week end update hands down best.

And best of those was the one where Gilda called Jane a biatch, twice, in January of 77.

Not in script and first time that word was used on TV.
 
2013-09-28 04:58:51 AM  

haemaker: Of ones not mentioned:

Don't Taunt Happy Fun Ball
Bag-O-Broken glass, Bag-O-Nails, Bag-O-Acid
I know not everyone likes them, but the Dick in a Box trilogy (with Mother Lover and Threeway)
the Blues Brothers
King Tut
All Drug Olympics
Stephon


Happy Fun Ball.

They have done so many hilarious fake commercials over the years.

Coco LaFemme: 70s: Chevy Chase/Richard Pryor job interview
80s: Mr. Robinson's Hood
90s: Wayne's World
00s: Weekend Update
10s: Any "-ville" sketch starring Justin Timberlake


I admit that I was never a fan of JT until I watched him on SNL. That guy is a good sport, talented, and twisted. I'm a fan now.

Phil Hartman as Frank Sinatra when he interviews Billy Idol, Sinead O'Connor, and Luther Campbell. Friggin hilarious to this day.
 
2013-09-28 05:35:14 AM  
To throw in a couple more of the commercial parodies, Bad Idea Jeans, Jewess Jeans, Change Bank, Colon Blow
 
2013-09-28 05:37:13 AM  

Vegas_Wiseguy: Phil Hartman as Frank Sinatra when he interviews Billy Idol, Sinead O'Connor, and Luther Campbell. Friggin hilarious to this day.


Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme were in that too.
 
2013-09-28 05:51:17 AM  
Hands down, The Blues Brothers.
 
2013-09-28 05:59:53 AM  
And no love at all for Buck Henry's Uncle Roy? Where have all the Fark perverts gone?

Boe: basemetal: Eddie Adams from Torrance: basemetal: [julia_child.jpg]

I remember watching that when it aired and laughing until it hurt.

/Save the liver!

Me too.

/everyone off the lawn....

My parents used to get us kids out of bed to watch it whenever Mr. Bill was on

/OH NOOOOOOOO!!!

//remembers getting in trouble for saying "Jane, you ignorant slut!"


I totally forgot about Mr. Bill!

I know that! Why wouldn't I know that?

No love for "Johnny Letter"?
 
2013-09-28 09:25:13 AM  
Bill Hader, Justin Timberlake, and Steve Martin always are gold. Alec Baldwin used to be, but the last episode with him was meh.

I can't believe that no one mentioned the Dark Side with Nat X

The wife also loves the Ladies' Man (I understand) and Mango (WTF?)

As others have pointed out, the last few seasons have been consistently very good. Not as many great episodes, but many, many more ones with only a small number of one-joke skits (ie Samurai [butcher, baker, packing clerk], Billy Goat Tavern, Making Copies, etc).

/The Kissing Family skit can go die horribly.
 
2013-09-28 09:30:38 AM  
The Snakes on a Plane skit, because it was so damn bizarre.  Does anyone remember the hand model skit with Phil Hartman.
 
2013-09-28 10:06:29 AM  

swahnhennessy: "I'll be in my room, masturbating."


OMFG yes.  There is an awful lot of great stuff covered in this thread, but this right here was probably the single most memorable moment of SNL I can recall... Joe Montana dropping that line literally left me doubled over in pain from laughing so hard because it was so completely out of left field.

And I know not everyone likes it but "Sprockets" is a personal favorite.
 
2013-09-28 10:23:17 AM  
Dukakis After Dark
 
2013-09-28 10:26:01 AM  
All of the above, but special mention of "The Amazing Collosal President", which benefitted from a week off due to Bob & Ray.

It kept upping the ante, until we got TV's first interracial same-sex kiss.
 
2013-09-28 10:47:20 AM  
Let's go kick the hell out of Old Man Gower!

Brain Injury Guy and Dog

The Italian Restaurant with Kirstie Allen...the single greatest line in SNL and it was a throw-away...The husband says to the wife as he storms out of the Italian restaurant because they were so sexually forward with his wife--"There's a Greek place down the street. Let's go there."
 
2013-09-28 10:49:46 AM  
Hanukkah Harry - "On Hymie...On Hershel...On Schlomoooo"

Not a skit, but on the same show's WU, Victoria Jackson did a little bump and grind number about Santa almost right in Miller's lap - and it looked like she was JUST a touch tipsy. Afterwards, all Miller could say was, "I think I have a candy cane here!"

A Gumby Christmas, Dammit!  with Piscopo as Sinatra, and Julia L-D and Kroeger as Donny and Marie, who end up making out while singing a love song. Classic.

and its no Pepsi - COKE

Shostie: Not really my favorite but I really enjoy the  Swarovski Crystals skits.

[grizzlybomb.com image 500x278]


Definitely.  I'm hoping for one of these tonight.
 
2013-09-28 11:16:34 AM  
^^^ ....with Tina Fey making a cameo in it.

zeppo: A Gumby Christmas, Dammit! with Piscopo as Sinatra, and Julia L-D and Kroeger as Donny and Marie, who end up making out while singing a love song. Classic.



So many awesome moments:

"You know, this is the part of the special when I was going to decorate the Christmas tree with my very good friend, Sammy Davis, Jr."

[ walks over to the huge Christmas tree ]

"But, unfortunately, Sammy could not be here tonight.. but he did send us this lovely ornament to decorate the tree with.."

[ pulls out an eyeball attached to a hook, and hangs it to the tree as the audience groans ]

"Shut up! Here's looking at you, Sammy."

********************************************************************* * ********************

"And to everyone out there - a merry Christmas! And to my producer, my director, my manager, and my lawyer - Happy Hanukkah, boys! Good night!"
