Potato Chip (and Stefon)

| 3 comments

I tend not to watch episodes of Saturday Night Live that aren't hosted by funny people, so if I hadn't read this list on Best Week Ever I might never have seen this sketch, called Potato Chip. Blake Lively is not especially funny, but oh man are Will Forte and Jason Sudeikis funny. I'm not going to say that this is the new Tales of Fraud and Malfeasance in Railroad Hiring Practices, but it's right up there with the crazy-ass wedding speech sketch with Hugh Laurie for greatest thing that's happened lately.

Also: Stefon. I literally have tears forming at the corner of my eyes, and I watched this alone at my computer at 4 in the afternoon.

You should probably mention

You should probably mention something in the post to warn us when all of the links aren't going to be viewable outside of the USA. Got me all hyped to see SNL actually do something funny for nothing.

Jesse, did you see Rocket Dog

Jesse, did you see Rocket Dog when Tracy Morgan was on last season? It ranks right up there with these, but is mysteriously absent online.

Total agreement.

While the quality of SNL overall is a source of constant debate, nearly every show this season has at least one moment of true comedic brilliance. I just wish Hulu provided more complete episodes since I can't get NBC.
