Video: See The Best Moments of Dave Chappelle on ‘SNL’

posted by Oscar November 13, 2016

Dave Chappelle returned to mainstream TV last night as the guest host of Saturday Night Live. The comic genius was host of SNL for his very first time, and the stand-up legend kicked things off with a 10 minute monologue doing what he does best. The opening monologue largely focused on Donald Trump being elected president of our country, delivering the line “We’ve actually elected an internet troll as our president.” Chappelle also talked about why he’s going to ride out this Trump presidency with the benefit being a rich man considering the tax cuts coming his way. But it wasn’t all jokes, as Chappelle concluded his monologue talking about how Obama did a good job as leader of the free world and then shared a bit of history of African Americans and their relationship with the White House prior to Obama’s presidency. Finally, he left us with these sobering lines: “I’m wishing Donald Trump luck. And I’m going to give him a chance. And we the historically disenfranchised demand that he gives us one too.”

The rest of the show was highlighted by Chappelle reviving some of his best Chappelle’s Show characters in a The Walking Dead skit featuring Tyrone Biggums, Lil’ Jon, Clayton Bigsby, and Silky Johnson recreating the famous Negan scene. It contains spoilers!! See more below Continue Reading

See the Ferguson Sketch ‘SNL’ Cut

posted by Oscar December 8, 2014

Over the weekend Saturday Night Live tackled the events going down in Ferguson during the “cold opening” but they also had plans on featuring a sketch on the subject during the James Franco-hosted episode. The sketch, filmed during dress rehearsal, was ultimately cut from the show for time but now that it has surfaced online, we still get to see it in all its hilarious glory.

The “Morning News” bit is a perfect example of how a lot of these saccharine shows can fumble a story like that, sometimes in the most painfully awkward ways. Check it out above.

Drake SNL

Drake made his return to Saturday Night Live tonight as the host and performer. His impressions were spot on and his performances were pretty good as well.  My favorite had to be his impressions of A. Rod and Katt Williams. You can see Drake perform “Started From The Bottom” and “Trophies” up above. You can watch his performance of “Hold On, We’re Going Home” and “From Time” with Jhené Aiko above as well.

Video: Arcade Fire Perform on ‘SNL’ + NBC Concert Special

posted by Oscar September 29, 2013

Indie Rock stars Arcade Fire have once again graced the stage of SNL to perform some tracks from their forthcoming album, Reflektor. The Canadian band, aside from appearing in a sketch poking fun at their hipster sense of style, performed the new album’s title track and debuted the song “Afterlife” (shown above).

The band’s SNL set immediately gave way for a concert special, Here Comes The Night Time, with guest appearances from artists like Ben Stiller, Bono, Aziz Ansari, Bill Heder, Zack Galifianakis and others that were on hand for some comic release. The new material sounds very promising and the concert film proved a triumphant return from the band.

See the band perform “Reflektor” below on SNL and the concert special below. Continue Reading
