Wit

I was waiting up for my daughter to get back from her drumline show on Saturday night, so I decided to actually watch Saturday Night Live. Apparently dressing Melissa McCarthy up as Sean Spicer and having her attack Cecily Strong with a cordless leaf blower is the soul of wit these days. Thought you'd want to know.

You actually were able to watch it??? Weren't the commercials funnier and more interesting?

I remember Rush's use of a Shop Vac sound when discussing Planned Parenthood, back in the day.

I'm sure it is funny for the people who agree on the agenda, but desperate and unpleasant for those who don't. That was my impression from watching for a couple of weeks in November and from reading my brother's positive reaction to it.

I like my comedy a little more clever than what I saw on SNL. Apparently the daily press briefings have been a bit pugnacious since the change in administrations, and from what little I’ve seen of Spicer he’s not exactly Tony Snow on the smoothness scale. The end of the skit revealed that the podium was motorized and showed McCarthy/Spicer chasing the reporters around the room. Sketch comedy isn’t usually Molière, but this was painful to watch. I haven’t seen that much mugging for the camera since Abe Vigoda was in his heyday on Barney Miller.

I have a standard for comedy. If I watch a 1/2 hour of it and don't chuckle even once, I never watch it again because it isn't a comedy. That's SNL.
