Storyline

A late-night comedy show featuring several short skits, parodies of television commercials, a live guest band, and a pop-cultural guest host each week. Many of the SNL players have spun off successful independent comedy and/or movie careers from here. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

I loved the old ones
17 June 2019 | by computergeek-84547See all my reviews

Matt Foley was absolutely amazing. I'm only 15 years old but my parents have shown me old movies from the 80s and 90s. Nowadays SNL is not funny. If you hear people laughing at the skits that are not funny in my opinion, then that means they get offended from jokes and their idea of comedy is not the comedy people had back then.
