Glad Villase√Īor is getting some shine.¬†

The fire skit was one of the more derivative sketches this season.

I rarely watch SNL anymore but derivative of what?  All I could think of was how painfully unfunny it was.

Yeah the firefighter skit was painful, however I did think it was one if the better episodes lately. Two things I didn’t like: I just don’t get Cardi B and Weekend Update is just a Trump bashfest, which gets old. We get it.....you hate Trump.

The Fokking cold open was great with DeNiro and Stiller. Jack Mulvaney's stand up was above average. Restaurant sketch was good but the end was kinda flat. High School kid w/boner was funny, Lobsters on Broadway was great. Jack White rocked. Weekend Update was very good. Kate killed as Laura Ingram so did Keenan as LaVar Ball. Hollywood Update sketch was funny. Horn removal was good. Jack White rocked some more. Real Intros of Reality Hills was funny.

Pretty damn solid episode. Mulvaney was very good. A

Saw on twitter that he said he and Jost wrote that one in 2010 and it didn't make it past the table read.  Switcheroo in 2009 didn't make it past the table read either.  Pretty cool they could bring them back from the dead.

That’s a hell of a take.  Wow

Obviously a little hyperbole with how many absolute garbage pop songs are out there about butts.

But, take away the controversial video and what's left?:

Dope beat? Check

Catchy, repetitive as shit hooks? Check

Rest of song? Who gives a shit.

In a musical era defined by its lazy songs and simplistic, nonsensical lyrics, that one may stand alone.

donald glover as childish gambino has never been known for the complexity of his lyrics, but this is a really odd song on which to hang this take.  when viewed in conjunction with the video (as is the obvious intent), the song/video have a painfully clear message beyond the surface of the lyrics.

I don’t get Donald Glover.  I cant stand him for some reason. That monologue was the least funniest one I’ve ever seen.

His monologue sucked.

I guess I am out of touch because that wasn't funny at all. 


A Quiet Place is a horror movie currently in theaters where the monsters hunt by sound, so the people must use different forms of communication to avoid detection.

A Kanye Place sketch uses A Quiet Place as a setting where these survivors are unable to keep quiet due to the outrageous quotes by the rap singer Kanye West. Mr. West has been in the news for saying and doing unusual things in the media.

SNL uses pop cultural references to set the scene, but it also satirizes pop culture itself by showing that, even in the face of annihilation, society cannot resist this form of news entertainment.

The forms of comedy used include:
absurdity
cultural satire
pop references
irony
slapstick

Does that help?

The video serves it's function, as the images bring to light the absurdity & hypocrisy within the present day mainstream hip hop genre...

(This old school educational video could be considered more artistic than some of the current jibberish mumble rap that is trending)...

No it doesn't. 

Here's a little follow up-

I know who Kanye is

know about his tweets

have seen the trailer for A Quiet Place and understand the premise of the movie

 

In my OPINION it wasn't a funny sketch.

I thought the Kanye Place sketch was like a lot of current SNL sketches.  Starts with a marginally amusing joke that just gets repeated over and over instead of developed, sketch fizzles and drags on too long.  

Glover stepped all over that Jurassic Park sketch by deciding he was going to play some over the top Johnny Cochran type character, I guess?

I actually agree with you, it isn't funny after you realize that that is actually the way we behave and where our priorities lie.

Alex Moffitt as Eric Trump brought the laughs.

Easily one of my favorite new characters. He and Mikey Day really work well together. The Prince Harry skit was a great example.
