Tom Hanks Hosts a Made-From-Home Edition of ‘S.N.L.’
By Danielle Turchiano. Senior Features Editor, TV. When something unfathomable happens, many try to make sense of it or simply provide an escapist outlet from it through humor. Armisen, as well as other former cast members including Adam Sandler, Bill Hader, Tina Fey and Maya Rudolph also sent in messages — and a special song — to pay tribute to music producer Hal Willner , who sadly passed away earlier this week, after reportedly experiencing coronavirus symptoms.

By Brian Marks For Dailymail. Pete Davidson opened up this week’s at-home Saturday Night Live with a pre-taped sketch directed by his mother Amy Davidson. The year-old old comedian and actor did his best approximation of a Drake song, appropriately titled This Is A Drake Song. Pete was joined on the episode by surprise host Tom Hanks and musical guest Chris Martin of Coldplay.
Pete performed a parody of an emotional slow jam, featuring lines like, ‘This is a Drake song,’ ‘I miss my ex,’ and ‘Number one on the billboard. Pete’s song was filmed from his tricked-out basement abode at his mother’s home, which was swathed in swirling purple light vaguely reminiscent of Drake’s Hotline Bling video. Surprisingly accurate: Pete performed a parody of an emotional slow jam, featuring lines like, ‘This is a Drake song,’ ‘I miss my ex,’ and ‘Number one on the billboard’.

In the SNL cover of the song, the ladies dispense the following dating advice: “Tell him that you don’t believe in marriage. Tell him that you don’t care if you have kids. Tell him, tell him, tell him, tell him all lies. The ladies went on to sing that if you want a man, you need to tell him that you love watching hockey, playing Call Of Duty, and reading comics. When it comes to sex, “You have to seen fun, and up for anything.
Tell him that you’re open to a three-way Tell him that you watch porn every day Tell him that you’re not grossed out when he says the word panties. The skit was set in a retro diner, with all of the ladies wearing pink and black, and it was staged as though they were in a Grease -like musical. But the advice dealt with the concerns of a modern woman:.
If you want him to stay pining after you Then you have to hide All the things women do Tell him that you’re naturally hairless Make him think you never use the bathroom Then when you’re sleeping you can run to Starbucks. The premise that to get a man to fall in love, a woman needs to be manipulative, deceptive and scheming is a fairly old one. Seriously, even Eve was accused of subterfuge. The lies may change, but the idea is still the same: Men are rigid, lazy dolts and ladies need to bend the truth, be flexible and work extra hard to snag them.
But chances are, for every woman who listened to this SNL song and said, “It’s funny because it’s true, I hate hockey! That chick is single, though, amirite?
7 Valentine’s Day ‘SNL’ Skits That Will Brighten Your Afternoon
In a bohemian production filmed from cast-members houses, “SNL” entered this strange new era of entertainment with a few misfires, but enough hits to keep us laughing. And now for something completely different. After a month away thanks to the novel coronavirus pandemic, “Saturday Night Live At Home” decided to jump into the fray of alternative production to try and bring back some semblance of what they do to the American public. Instead, the night kicked off with the entire cast converging in a Zoom conference call before a new intro featured the band members all performing from their respective homes, and new footage of the cast in their homes to set the stage for something we’ve never seen before.
Tom Hanks was the surprise host — with Chris Martin as musical guest — to help ease us into this unusual new format, though he obviously wasn’t guest-starring in sketches throughout the night.
The season finale opened with a Zoom sketch of a graduation ceremony for the class of , with Alec Baldwin’s Trump also offered some advice to the graduating class. A premiere date has yet to be announced.
Unless you have late-night plans this Saturday night, there won’t be any major reason to stay up extra late: There isn’t a new Saturday Night Live episode airing on NBC this weekend. While it’s definitely a bummer, you’ll likely be pumped about who is hosting SNL when the comedy series does come back on February Rest assured, the show’s brief break doesn’t necessarily mean any crazy drama is happening behind the scenes.
While the true reason why SNL takes breaks is unknown, it could, as one Redditor cleverly noted , have to do with the number of episodes that NBC orders per season. For the past five years , the network has issued 20—22 episodes each season. The seemingly random breaks help stretch the show over the course of roughly eight months end of September to mid-late May — a typical time frame for most big network shows to run. Then, like most big shows that premiere in the fall, SNL is off for the entire summer.
Beyond that reasoning, the occasional breaks may also benefit the show’s writers and comedians and provide the rest of the crew plenty of time to rehearse, make sets and costumes, and more. All in all, breaks can be a good thing, especially when it means that viewers will be rewarded with talent like John and David when the wait is over. Also, we could all catch up on our sleep, right?

Since becoming the first woman to serve as Saturday Night Live head writer and especially after broadcasting a fictionalized version of her SNL tenure on 30 Rock, Fey has been a highly visible member of the upper echelons of comedy. She is the rare writer-actress who is respected by industry peers, lauded by critics, and rewarded by awards shows who is also commercially successful and stars-in-AmEx-ads-level famous.

Meyers introduced Stefon as a guide who knows all about New York and asks him for tips on essential destinations and events for visitors. Stefon recommends unusual clubs and parties with bizarre characters and very specific tastes, described as “visions a dying gay man would have if he was under too many blankets,”  “nightmares of a crystal meth addict,”  or a “coked-up gay Candyland.
Stefon’s segments were inspired by real people Hader and Mulaney had encountered. One was a club promoter who sent Mulaney an email about a club that “had everything,” including “rooms full of broken glass” as one of the highlights. The character’s mannerisms were based on a barista at a coffee shop in Chelsea, Manhattan that Hader frequented who looked and talked like Stefon. Stefon’s hair was inspired by the characters in that film, “specifically based in popup club culture in New York City circa “.

And yet, during the last couple times he’s returned to host the show in the years since he left, particularly in and , the episodes have mostly been I’m happy to say Ferrell was on fire during this weekend’s episode, making every sketch he was in better with his trademark manic energy. The biggest problem, as it has been in recent seasons, were the political sketches the cold open was particularly wretched this week , and an over-reliance on comedian and celebrity cameos eating away time from the cast.
These kinds of sketches, which are something between regurgitated highlights and surreal reimaginings of reality, are always a double-edged sword, but particularly so when you’re relying on ringers to carry it. This one will undoubtedly be the most-talked about sketch of the week, and it is filled with some truly exceptional impressions and one-liners. David and Rudolph always kill it as Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris; Armisen was very funny as Mike Bloomberg; Harrelson and Dratch are totally solid; and Ferrell played Tom Steyer, whose main personality trait is that he doesn’t blink.
The only cast member who made a real impression during the sketch was Cecily Strong as the villainous Tulsi Gabbard—even Kate McKinnon’s usually standout Elizabeth Warren was lost in the mix. It wasn’t terrible like the obligatory Alec Baldwin appearances, but for the amount of real estate it took up during the show, it isn’t that great. And at this point, it’s hard to imagine how the show can course correct on this front.
