Left-Wing Vice Magazine: Say, Saturday Night Live Really Is Unfunny and Hackneyed, Isn't It?

Via Jazz Shaw, maybe even some leftwingers are getting tired of SNL's call-and-response religious sermons pretending to be "comedy."

He's talking about SNL's cold opens (a cold open is any part of show that appears before the credits have "warmed it up," so to speak), but that's where most of the stupid political bullshit is. And I can't imagine the rest of the show is any better.



SNL' Cold Opens Are Unfunny, Elitist Pieces of Liberal Propaganda


The star-studded sketches aren't just dull, they're limousine liberalism at its worst.

Harry Cheadle

May 8 2018, 12:55pm


...

All of this is preamble to say to SNL, I come as a friend: Your cold opens are terrible, cringeworthy pieces of self-satisfied liberal propaganda that are sometimes so bad they seem like parodies of themselves.

Even if you avoid SNL you probably hear about these cold opens, which are consistently politically themed--though "themed" may be too strong a word because they are mostly just recaps of the political news of the week performed by A-list celebrities....

But beyond that novelty, the jokes are tired references to current events that never build on one another. Instead, they are limply tossed out as obvious applause lines to an anti-Trump crowd....

....Baldwin's Trump impression also stands out as awful. He keeps his mouth open for reasons I don't understand, squints, and talks in a deep voice. That's it. The real Trump and Rob Schneider are correct: It doesn't work.

Schneider, believe it or not, had another trenchant critique of these sketches, which is that they skew too heavy-handedly to the left. "The fun of 'Saturday Night Live' was always you never knew which way they leaned politically," he told the New York Daily News last month. "You kind of assumed they would lean more left and liberal, but now the cat's out of the bag they are completely against Trump, which I think makes it less interesting because you know the direction the piece is going."

...

At best, the cold opens just echo the same beats and jokes as all those other programs (every good liberal recycles material). At worst, these sketches just coddle the audience by reflecting all of their assumptions and prejudices back at them: Yes, Trump is dumb, his administration is full of venal lackeys, Jeff Sessions is creepy, Cohen is a crook, all of your obvious, knee-jerk impulses and prejudices are correct. It's not just playing to the crowd, it's spoon-feeding the audience their own spit-up. It's Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip come to life. It's exactly the kind of smug, smarmy bullshit that makes conservatives angry enough at the Hollywood elite to vote Trump just to stick it to them.

Jazz Shaw's link (the first link above) ends with a cold open from the Mother's Day show in which the cast had on their mothers, many of whom complained that the constant Trump jokes weren't funny.

But... that bit also wasn't funny. Even when they're knocking themselves for not being funny, they still can't manage to make it funny.

By the way, the Vice article links a bunch of non-political sketches, and one political sketch that takes a shot at #WokeFeministMen who just play the feminism card to get women into bed. He says these are examples of the show really hitting its stride and being genuinely funny.

He's wrong. None of these sketches are funny, including the one about #WokeFeministMen which should, in theory, appeal to me, if only on a clapter level.

It's actually a very obvious and unfunny sketch of a dude sitting down next to a woman at a bar, laying down a smooth #WokeFeministRap on her, then asking making sexual propositions with decreasing levels of subtlety and calling her a "Bitch" when she says she won't.

This goes on for, I think, five minor variations of the same dumb set-up/punchline.

Even with a short-for-SNL runtime of 3:10, the sketch is still a padded-out grind.

If this is SNL firing on all cylinders, it's time to take the car out behind the bar and shoot it in the head.

They are a bunch of pinch-faced scolds who have no concept of the real world or the real people who live in it.

The first rule of comedy is that you must be able to laugh at your own foibles. No leftist I've ever met could do that. Hence, no sense of humor.

There was an article/mass interview with SNL players past and present last year (Rolling Stone or TIME?) where the more recent cast and writers talked about the importance of what they had to say in the show, about how people supposedly looked to them for political commentary on recent events (such as the Hillary "Hallelujah" opener).

These are a bunch of self-important progressive twits who think they are political pundits.

90 I realize why it doesn't work anymore. Anytime I try to watch anything on SNL, even when they're trying to be funny, it's the kind of "humor" you get when the head of the Woman's Guild try's to do a stand up routine at the Sunday Night Church Social.

To work, humor has to be irreverent, but that is a completely DIFFERENT thing than saying "Oh I hate my enemy so much here's how much I hate him!!!!" which is all they can do anymore. There is a huge body of leftist dogma that they are required to be ABSOLUTELY reverent to, and that kills any chance of humor at all.

(See we could do humor here - Imagine a skit where Harvey Weinstein was trying to hit on Trigglypuff. Comedy Gold, man!!! but no they would all faint if anyone suggested that to them.)

Caught a bit of NPR's "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!" show on Saturday while driving with my kid. It was sooooo bad. They started with mocking Trump (naturally) then mocking Melania's "Be Best". Then moved on to mocking Romney with a quiz about what Romney has said was his favorite meat, then his second favorite meat. The jokes were essentially some guy using a funny voice pretending to be Romney saying "I like hamburgers almost as much as hotdogs" - with the host and audience laughing hysterically. It was bizarre.

I can laugh at good jokes about Republicans, but this was closer to a lighthearted 2 Minutes of Hate.

Crash, bang, and a boom is funny at first, then it turns into a horror show. Lotta pedestrians bouncing off cars, lotta cars taking dead aim at the car they're going to hit. Some of it looks deliberate. I'm afraid to drive into town after seeing these videos. Most of them are Russian, very few American.

121 I think fondness for particular versions of SNL amounts to nostalgia. It's been a pretty mixed bag from start to present. Some of the stuff being cited as funny, like Belushi as a samarai, is painfully unfunny to virtually anyone who's familiarity with it is postdates the original broadcast. Belushi is overrated in general; he owes most of his reputation to dying young. Sort of like Sam Kinison. I laughed hard at Kinison's routines as a teenager. But I cannot imagine listening to 20 more years of him screaming. Cf. Louis Black.

David Spade was even funnier, and he pissed off Murphy so much that he quit the show and wouldn't come back.

I think the final blow was when, after one of Murphy's big movie bombs (Pluto Nash, maybe?) and Spade, live, was doing some supposed kids skit and said "Hey kids, Look, it's a falling star!!!!"" and he pointed to a picture of Kevin Murphy on the wall.

Damn, that pissed Murphy off so much that he refused to go back on the show for 15 years.

Too many of the people given the jobs are inexperienced, far too young, unseasoned, and the best they can do is parrot what they've already seen others do.

181 169 This is actually pretty much true for most comedy today.

Too many of the people given the jobs are inexperienced, far too young, unseasoned, and the best they can do is parrot what they've already seen others do.

People who 'grew up' watching Jon Stewart klutz his way through a half-hour every night think picking the approved target is 90% of comedy.

For some values of "A".

I haven't known most of the guests since before I quit caring about that show over 20 yrs ago when I didn't mind the damn kids on my lawn. Apparently, the only shows now more funny than SNL are the MFM news channels. I think the critics need a new alphabet rating system if what they promote are "A"s.

Or, maybe, with maturity and sobriety, I've realized that I was right all along that SNL has been a laughless, highly choreographed, car crash for decades.

270 The left only mildly criticizes SNL, and that only becasue their attacks on Trump have fallen so flat. Nobody is going after the New Yorker, whose writing is tendentious and cartoons banal, or the NYT, where the writing is ponderous and predictably Marxist. Nobody attacks CNN, but that's only be cause nobody watches it (seriously, without airport eyeballs, does it draw even enough to fill a high school football stadium?).

We could name lots more examples. The left is boring, unfunny, and superficial. The fact that the right is worse, except for Ace the coblogs, doesn't change that basic truth.

I was listening to Rush. He knows who the FBI mole was in the Trump campaign. THis whole Russian collusion was a Deep State entrapment scheme. They made it up to entrap some Trump people.

The mole told them, "Pssst, you know the Rooskies have got some dirt on Hillary. You better check that out." Then, they get these guys interested, then use that to get the FISA warrants.

The whole thing was made up by the Deep State from the get-go.

369 Alot of the SNL stuff from the 1970s was not funny -best
time was whenever Dana Carvey and Mike Myers were on the show -same time as Farley IIRC. Belushi was okay sometimes but some of his stuff was just gross -like from
one of the best movies to come out SNL -Animal House-
look at me I'm a zit -not funny- smashes a guys guitar -
hilarious for about 1 second. Liked him better in Blues Brothers. Fun stuff -but not laugh out loud funny -like Carvey's church lady.

Best thing I ever saw Eddie Murphy do was the hot tub
James Brown imitation.
The 1980s SNL was mostly crap. There was some guy named something Brown who did weekend update -he was funny sometimes - I think they threw him off the show for
being a racist. A Whitney Brown I think.

Vancome Lady. Stuart. Ms. Swan. Marvin Tikvah.

Too many to list, really. Michael McDonald and Will Sasso really had a nice run on there. Sasso did a really over the top Kenny Rogers and one of my favorites of all time was one called Mr. Sasso's Storytime where he played some dude who was a kid's storyteller on a public access channel back in the day but now he's an old alcoholic who has the kids doing errands for him and going and getting him smokes at the store.

427 Will Ferrell is "funny" in the same vein that Paris Hilton was "famous."

There's a Tex-Mex restaurant in my area that everyone knows, everyone takes out-of-town relatives, and is always swamped on the weekends. Only thing is - it's not that good. And no one ever raves about how awesome the food is.

It is famous for being famous.

It is the restaurant version of Paris Hilton.

It is the restaurant version of Will Ferrell.

Cavuto has one of the FOX docs on explaining what it sounds like to him. Melania had a benign mass in her kidney, and it was becoming problematic, maybe bleeding.

In the old days, they would've had to go in and remove it, taking out part of the kidney. With this embolization procedure, they block off blood flow, and that shrinks the mass without have to cut into the kidney.

The reason they need to keep her there is for observation to make sure it doesn't affect her kidney function, which is possible. If so, they'll have to go in there and do something else.

448 I think Will Ferrell can be funny. For SNL, he was really good in the "more cowbell" skit (though Walken's demented portrayal of Bruce Dickinson steals the show). His online skit with his toddler daughter playing the role of drunken landlady is funny. I like him as Mugatu in Zoolander as well. That "obey my dog" sequence kills me.

482 380 Build your house on the active slope of the worlds most active volcano, on the active rift that erupted in 1955, cry for a FEMA bailout when your house is destroyed by the volcano because you didn't have volcano insurance. And get the bailout. Trump should have told them to pound sand, or ash as the case may be. Common sense says don't build where you built. How is that now my emergency?
______________________

There is no such thing as volcano insurance, at least according to the deputy insurance commissioner in Hawaii. But he says some of the damage may be covered under policies that insure "all risks," although very few people actually have such policies, as they tend to be very expensive, for all the obvious reasons.

But the U.S. taxpayer always seems to get stuck picking up the tab, one way or another, for the people who choose to live in places where their houses are un-insurable due to known risks. And it shouldn't be that way.

And then he said when he got to 12, he was done, he'd used up his material, so he told the BBC to piss off, he was through, even though everyone wanted him to continue.

Posted by: Tom Servo at May 14, 2018 04:08 PM (k1TUh)

I like a lot of Adam Sandler movies.

Just Go With It. OKay, it's a remake of Cactus Flower, that movie that put Goldie Hawn on the movie map. But it's a neatly done farce . . . and you get Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Aniston in a hula dance competition, barefoot and in grass skirts. How could you not like it???

521 I am not crazy about Sandler as a comedian. He's underrated as an actor though. He played a sympathetic weirdo with emotional problems really well in Punch Drunk Love, which has some very funny moments not typical of Sandler's comedy.

I never thought SNL was that great - not from the very beginning. They had a few funny skits but most of the show were just rehashes of the same old skits. I never got the point of that. I mean, how many times do you have to see Samarai Take-Out, or whatever the hell it was? Once was more than enough for me. ANd the Land Shark stuff ... that was just infantile. But ... people claimed to like it. I never found any use for it.

The musical guest was usually not bad but that was only 3 minutes - 6 if they did two songs, I guess.

That's what we all (my friends and I) did - got together on Saturday nights, got stoned, etc. A lot of it was funny, some not so much. I couldn't stand Chevy Chase, thought anything he did was stupid.
But a lot of the Boomer stuff - music, TV - was just fresh and original. Today that magic is just not remakable.

Things that cost you the election:

1. Your complete lack of empathy, human personality, charm, grace, wit, and style.

2. Your complete lack of successful experience or stated differently, your uninterrupted public history of failure, corruption, incompetence, self-dealing and venality.

3. Your obvious plans upon election to wreak further havoc on the welfare of the country, certain portions of its citizenry, to punish your enemies and steal on behalf of your friends.

and

4. The very real possibility that there would never be another president of the U.S. once you were done with the job.

We watched it high as hell and always waited for the first commercial break, because that's where the ad was. It was more anticipated than Super Bowl commercials.

Talk about unself-awareness. They ALWAYS leaned left. Even in the so called glory days of the first two years. Left, left left.

Good God.

Plus they haven't really been funny since then.
