I have been a devotee of Saturday Night Live for two many years to mention (for fear that folks could figure out I am actually older than dirt). Sadly, it will probably never approach the hilarity of the earlier years with The Coneheads and the work of Gilda Radner. I simply hate the new bits that are repeated ad nauseam, such as the idiot kissing sketch or what’s up with that number (which, this week, wasted the talent of Paul Rudd and Frank Rich).
That was why I was looking forward to seeing comedian (from The Hangover), Zach Galifianakis, hosting for the first time last night. Too bad they couldn’t feature him in every sketch, but the following pieces that he did were really quite unique. I loved his kid/grabbing himself train excitement and joke about home-schooling. And, I was momentarily fooled when I saw Brian Williams at the beginning of the “Zach Drops by the Set” digital short, which really was the show’s highlight .Vodpod videos no longer available.
