Saturday Night Live recap: Jason Momoa is really hot, but is he funny? (Videos)

We all know Jason Momoa is very hot. This week the Aquaman star hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time. It’s surprisingly more difficult when the host is a hot man. Not because hot men aren’t funny, but because the show often leans too heavily on the fact that they are stone cold hunks for jokes. Sometimes these jokes work, sometimes they don’t. It hinges on the host’s likeability.

Saturday Night Live recap: Claire Foy keeps SNL ship afloat

This week’s episode of Saturday Night Live featured Claire Foy as the guest host. For a first-time host who isn’t known for her comedy chops, Foy did really well. She was often the best part of the sketches she was in. The Crown star showcased her range, committed to characters, and even showed off a multitude of accents she can do. While Foy shined, the episode overall had some hits

Chris Redd at Montreal’s Just For Laughs 2018

Chris Redd experienced a breakout summer in 2016, first as a scene-stealer in the The Lonely Island’s movie Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping, then as a New Face at Montreal’s Just For Laughs, and finally as an almost-hire at Saturday Night Live. My bad on that almost part. (Understatement) Except SNL did hire Redd as […]

Donald Glover Loves Singing, Hates Shirts on ‘SNL’

It’s officially festival season, the time of year where celebrities appear next to each other completely out of context. Do you need to see a picture of Shania Twain, Nicki Minaj, and Timothée Chalamet hanging out? I got you. This episode of SNL provided an equally surreal meet-up. During goodbyes, the first person Martin Short […]

‘SNL’ Is Always Better When John Mulaney Writes It

Photo: Will Heath/NBC John Mulaney has been putting up #tbt pics of his SNL years all week, and he has barely aged. And although his face has remained that of an ageless lifesize doll, Mulaney has grown a lot as a performer. When he did “I Love It” on Update back in his writer days, […]

Chadwick Boseman Hosts a Silly Yet Woke ‘SNL’

CARDI B IS PREGNANT!!!! Also there was some live comedy. There episodes of SNL where the musical guest, for one reason or another, outshines the host. The best sketch of Larry David’s latest episode had more Miley Cyrus than him in it. But sometimes the musician is just more newsworthy. Usually in a bad way […]

Bill Hader’s Big ‘SNL’ Reunion

Bill Hader has always struck me as more of an ensemble player, in the vein of Phil Hartman and Chris Parnell. It’s not that he can’t carry a sketch, it’s that he seems to have more fun in bigger group pieces. Almost every character Hader performed in this episode was a stone cold freak, and […]

Sterling K. Brown’s Delightful ‘SNL’ Hosting Debut

What a night for Melissa Villaseñor! After a season and a half of 1-2 lines every episode, she was featured in five sketches this weekend and closed out the show with a banger Nickelback rendition. I think the episode needed her more reserved stage presence to counterbalance Sterling K. (Kathleen) Brown’s theatricality. Brown brought a […]
