‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’: Series Premiere Review
Tina Fay, Amy Poehler, Kristin Wiig, and Jason Sudeikis. These are just some of the many talented comedians who have become household names through Saturday Night Live. They have all left the show and become successful film and television stars. The newest actor to have his own series is Andy Samberg. Samberg is already a talented recording artist thanks to his comedic rap group phenomenon The Lonely Island. Now, he is going back to television.
Five Favorite Clips Featuring the Women of SNL
In honor of Kristen Wiig decision to leave Saturday Night Live, I have chosen my five favorite clips featuring the SNL‘s women. This list is very Weekend Update heavy because that is they type of humor I find funny. If you have a favorite SNL Clip that did not make my list, please share it in the comments. I would love to watch it.
5. Weekend Update: Tina Fey Montage- Tina Fey
Tina Fey was fantastic as anchor of Weekend Update. Unfortunately, it is not easy to find a whole sketch on the Internet. While this clip is no where near the funniest, Tina Fey does make a point about scientific research that gets a few laughs.
4. Weekend Update: Jane, You Ignorant Slut!- Jane Curtin
Point/Counterpoint is a classic because of its catchphrase. You just know when Jane Curtin is finished making her point that the first thing out of Dan Aykroyd’s mouth is going to be “Jane, You Ignorant Slut!”
