View Full Version : Favorite SNL skit

Saturday Night Live has been around for over 27 years now and through each of the different casts that they have had over the years, they have had some memorable skits.

The first cast that consisted of Akroyd, Radner, Murray, Belushi and others had it's funny skits. I'll admit, I've only seen a few rerun shows but I do like the Conehead skits I've seen, as well as the candygram shark and the Akroyd salesman skit that tries to market obviously dangerous toys such as 'Johnny Switchblade' and 'Bag o' Glass'

The Eddie Murphy era had some funny ones like the Buckwheat sings commerical, as well as Mr. Robinson's neighborhood and the one where he puts on makeup and becomes a white man for a day.

The late 80's featured Hartman, Carvey and others and they had some hilarious skits including Tarzan, Tonto and Frankenstein (fire baaaaaaaaaaaaaad! :Pirate: ) and the Leprocy-off commerical.

The early 90's added Myers, Sandler and Spade and featured some beauts like the Italian restaurant sketch in where the employees slobber all over Kristie Alley, Matt Foley, Sprokets, and Massive Headwound Harry.

My favorite however comes from the Will Ferrel, Ana Gasteyer, Cheri Oteri era. It is the Neil Diamond VH1 Storytellers sketch that featured Will Ferrel as Neil Diamond and John Goodman as the lead guitarist. The Storyteller show is a muscial show in where the artists tells the story behind each song before he performs them.

Ferrel does a near dead on imitation of Diamond and says things like "This next song we wrote after driving home after a concert at the Forum in L.A. It was getting late and and and we hit a kid. We didn't stop to see how he was, we just kept on driving. Never did find out what happened, but afterwards we wrote 'Sweet Caroline.' "

He then talks about how he is inspired to write through his love of barely legal hard core pornography--the kind you can't get through the mail. John Goodman wants to be left out of the discussion but Diamond screams "No, I will not leave you out, I WILL LEAVE YOU IN. I AM NEIL DIAMOND!"

He then tells the audience, "few no I am fueled creatively by my intense hatred of all those with foreign skin." He says this while Tim Meadows, an African American is playing a keyboardist. He then goes on to sing "America" and changes a lyric of the song to say "You hate your keyboard player because he's black but you don't have the guts to tell him"

Meadows then storms off the stage saying "man you are a wreck." Ferrel then grabs his aching back and says "I think-I think I tore some stitches" in a dead on imitation. He then tells the audience who are now leaving in droves that he wrote his next song after killing a drifter just to get--well--we'll just say his jollies. He then went to sing "Forever in Blue Jeans"

What is your favorite sketch?

AAAHHH!! the one where mike myers is that kid who gets all hyper when he eats candy! I think he did it with Nicole Kidman. and also the ones where Chris Farley talks about living in a van DOWN BY THE RIVER!! Good times, good times. I think almost all of my favorites come from the early nineties episodes.

"I'll take The Rapist for $200" :D



Farley in the Gilligan's Island skit is freakin' hilarious.

Akroyd's Bass-O-Matic skit was gross and funny.

Several of the old and new superhero skits are classics.

I don't know if Mr. Bill and Jack Handy count, but I used to look forward to those.

Jeeez...there are so many! :)

[Cut to a plantation house. Abraham Lincoln knocks on the door and a young boy answers.]

Will Ferrel and his Harry Caray skits. "Hey Norm, If you were a hotdog, would you eat yourself. I know I would. I'd smother myself with ketchup and relish. Hot dogs can become our currency. Roughly twenty franks would equal a nickel."

Another funny sketch is Nathan Lane and Chris Kattan's vaudeville era ethnic comedy skits and where they parody pretty much every ethnic group. "Hi, there Boozy McLiverdamage, what have you been up to lately?"

"Oh, nothing. Just gettin' drunk and beating up m' kids."

And a lot of gameshow parodies such as the Bible Trivia Game in which the answers to the questions are revealed right after they first read the question. They then ask the Christian panelists (including a nun) if they knew the answer, and after they admitting 'no', they come to Norm MacDonald's character who is smoking a cigarette and eating McDonalds. He's like "Yeah, yeah, yeah I knew that one." They then pay him $50.

Also the Superfans Jeopardy (complete with the cheesefry booth), Sabbah Price is Right, and Geek, Dweeb or Spaz are a few of my other favs.

Ah yes! A classic. I love that song!

Emperor Howdy
10-10-2002, 11:21 PM
Darth Vellner's "@#$%....I'm SO stupid.." reminded me of another classic. The Chris Farley Show interviewing Paul McCartney.

Chris: "Heh-heh....yeah. So....ummm....do you....umm...hey....remember when you were with The Beatles?"

Paul: "Of course I do...."

Chris: "That was awesome......heh-heh-heh..........DOH! That was SO STUPID!" (smacking himself in the head)

Chris: "Ummm....you..you remember when you said The Love You Take is Equal to the Love You Make....is that true?"

Paul: "Why, yes Chris."

Chris: "%@#$ A, Man! @#$! A!"



I'm sure I'm misquoting it, but it was funny as hell!

Hey, I laugh at Brian Fellow ! (note it is Fellow not Fellows :D It's just funny to me that Tracy Morgan always said Fellows but now he correctly says Fellow. :p

I love it when he cracks on the animals, namely that goat with it's "devil eyes." And didn't he refer to a donkey as a large dog ?



Oh, I want to add Horatio Sanz' Jasper Hahn artist character to my list, and man oh man do I ever "need more cowbell !" :crazed:

So many great posts in this thread - keep it up ! I forgot all about Boozey McLiverDamage and hor semen and Action Cats and Philadelphia action figures and and and and and . . . . :D

I'll catch hell for this, but I loved all of the Ferrell/Shannon "Dog Show" sketches, my favorite being the one with James Vander Beek and his dog Captain Gingersnap. :happy:

That one that was on around the time Episode II opened was funnier then hell. The one that had Mace Windu introducing the new Jedi Council. I wish I still had that on my harddrive, now I can't find where to download it again.

Mace Windu: "I'd like to introduce the new members of the Jedi Council. Obi-Wan Kenobi, Harry Potter, Mayor McCheese, Cartman from South Park, etc. etc. and Yoda."

Yoda: "Wassssssup?"

Plus they went on to having a whole song and dance scene with "N'Sync" from Episode II.

Mace Windu: "But does Anakin Skywalker have enough Midiclorians to join the Jedi Council. You damn right he does."

Obi-Wan: "I don't think we have a choice. To save the republic we need to let N'Sync kick it nickety new school style."

And then the fake N'Sync came out dressed as Jedi's and started singing some cheesy Star Wars song. Damn, I wish I would have saved that one now.

Are you kidding? Christopher Walken's 'The Continental.'

..."You know, when you called, my heart sang. Allow me to take your wrap. No? I see. You've only come to reclaim your misplaced glove...But don't you see? I would be devastated, if you did not join me for at least one glass...of fine champagne."...

..."Sit, please. You know, I think it was no accident... in fact, I believe there are no accidents. This glove is merely an excuse. Admit it: you find me as irresistable as I find -- whoa--wait--ah-ha! [door slams] Forgive me, my little frightened wide-eyed doe!"...

..."I do not like to play games. I will find your glove, and you will go. But first, a glass of fine champagne."...

..."Sit, please. Eh? Eh? Forgive me, if my hungry eyes feast on the banquet of your sumptuous declotage....the champagne you have thrown stings my eyes."

"Woof. Woof-woof. The view from here...is intoxicating. Like fine champagne."

(His fake moustache comes half off in the middle of the skit. Walken camly reapplies it when he realizes what the audience is laughing at.)

What do people think of the revamped SNL cast. To tell you the truth, I haven't watched the show regulary in three years and hardly any last year. Although I managed to sneak a skit called "Super Buzzer" about a game show in the 1970's that featured Rip Taylor himself.

Here are more of my favorite skits.

Def Comedy Jam Magic Show (git yo arse in the box beatch!)

Greenhilly with Alec Baldwin (where he kisses anyone and everyone--including the family dog)

Mr. No Depth Perception

And who can forget the William Shatner/Star Trek Convention skit from the late 1980's in where he tells the Star Trek fans there to get a life.

I'm sure we can all relate to that. ;)

I have been taping the show religiously for the past several years, despite its ups and downs . . . yeah there is plenty of deadwood but it's still worth it to me for the funny moments. :)

As for this year, I'm not ready to comment yet - tonight is the second episode, and I think the year will really suffer from Will's absence. I am however a huge fan of Ms. Amy Pohler. :happy:
And Jimmy Fallon and Tina Fey. :)


Last night I was watching my Springsteen video anthology DVD and after watching Dancing in the Dark I just HAD to pull out the Best of Sandler DVD to watch his spoof with Courtney Cox. :D

Also, I forgot about the Italian Restaurant sequel sketch which can be found on that same disc. It's not as good as the first one because Carvey isn't there, but it's still funny.

Oh, I just remembered Rob Schneider's "The Sensitive Naked Man" series ! :crazed:

Another favorite that I forgot to mention was a skit featuring Steve Buscemi from 1998. The skit was a parody of the "Children's Story Time Hour" in where actors portray characters from nursery rhymes. The nursery rhyme in the skit was "Alice in Wonderland."

Alice, the Mouse, the Rabbit and the Mad Hatter were all sitting down for tea. They were asked to tell the rest of the characters some crazy things that they do. Everyone mentioned silly things such as the rabbit, who mentioned that he put socks on his hands and gloves on his feet. When it came to Buscemi, who was playing the Mad Hatter, he stated "I like to make racecars out of my poop." The others quieted down and stared blankly at the Hatter.

After mentioning a few more minor crazy things each of them do, the Hatter said, among other things "I like to put out cigars on my p*n*s." This caused the rest of the characters to ask, "Where did he come from? I thought he came with you?"

After a while, two men came to wrap up the Hatter with a straight-jacket and while he was escorted away, the Hatter said "By the way, I poisoned your tea."

It took me a while to get to posting to this great thread, due in no small part to the fact that the main skits and/or commercials I wanted to reflect upon kept slipping my mind.

I remember when SNL premiered! My mom and dad were watching and my brothers and I found no humor in it at all. But we were rather young. It was not too much later that I rediscoverd it and have been watching off and on ever since.

A fairly recent favorite was the children's show sketch they did when Cameron Diez was hosting. Tim Meadows was the host of the show and Cameron and three other cast members were repreentaives of such sentiments as Kindness, Unity, and Frienship. Each had the first letter of said sentiment on thier sweater and would stand together in a line, then sing songs that would lead to thier wanting to change the line-up. Inevitably the four would come dangerously close to spelling out something inappropriate and Tim Meadows' character would have to stop them, though they could not understand why!

A great commercial was Petchow brand rat poison. The poison came in huge 40 pound bags with a picture of a husky on the front and the bold word PETCHOW across the top with "Rat Poison" in tiny letters underneath. Will Ferrel played Hank Petchow, the owner of Petchow Rat Poison who claimed it was the only poison deadly enough to carry the Petchow name. It even has a picture of his dog on the package. And when you mix his rat poison with water, it makes a rich gravy that no rat can resist!

Back in the old original cast days there was a great skit for Roach Brothel (this was back when the Roach Motel was first introduced). John Belushi played a hapless roach lured into the Roach Brothel by its irresistable roach prostittues. The slogan was "Roaches Make Out But Thye Don't Get Out".

Of course SNL is famous for recurring characters from "those wild and crazy guys" to the Roxbury boys. A short lived recurring character (only appearing two times that I recall) was the Wideends. They basically were a typical American family in the vein of the 50's sitcom, except that they had enormous rear ends! There was one skit when Milton Berle was hosting and they were showing home movies on his deriere since they couldn't get the movie screen to unroll.

Other favorites over the years have been Christopher Guest and Billy Crystal's couple of guys who, "Hate when that happens", the great skit with Christopher Lee (back in the 70's) as death, explaining to Loranne Newman (playing a little girl) about why her kitten had to die, then denying to give her a good night kiss, Dell Stater's Rabbit Hutch (where you get to choose the rabbit you want to eat for dinner, much like choosing a lobster), and the more recent appearance of Sir Ian McKellen.

Ian McKellen stole the show he was on from his appearance on Weekend Update as Dame Maggie Smith talking about the (at the time) upcomming Academy Awards (stating in regard to Ian McKellen's nomination for best actor that the Academy should, "Throw the old queen a bone!") and then kissing Jimmy Fallon square on the lips, much to Fallon's surprise, to his appearance as the local #1 Doctor Who impersonator on a fan-boy public access comic book show. His character was the manager of a Pizza Hut (for which he was congratulated on the new Pizzone, prompting the reply, "Yes, it's a very exciting time for us!") who held the title of the best Dr. Who impesonator due in no small part to the fact that he was the only person in town who could do an Engilsh accent. He was then asked to do his impersonation of Gandalf in Lord of the Rings. He immediatly went into character, delivering the line from the movie about not being some cheap conjurer trying to steal the Ring from Bilbo. The two hosts of the show were in awe of him until he offered to do another impression he liked to call "Magneto". McKellen then delivers the worst possible impresion of himself spouting off Magneto's "We are the future, Charles" line. The hosts are very let down and it made a great ending to the skit going from dead on to way off the mark. In a Star Wars related note, since this aired well before the release of Attack of the Clones, the hosts talked about the trailer, one of them spouting off Palpatine's remarks to Anakin about him becoming the greatest of all Jedi, leaving the other host temporarily short of breath!

Needless to say, there have been dozens upon dozens of greats over the years, many of which others have already reflected upon in this thread. One more commercial that did spring to mind was last weekend's Corona ads, poking fun at the still running beachfront ad campaign. They did three in all with a couple at the beach, the man becoming more inebriated and incoherrant with each new commercial, first throwing his beer, instead of his beeper, into the ocean. In the last one he throws a beer bottle and inadvertantly kills a waiter strolling by on the beach! The slogan for the ad was, "Corona - Miles away from sober"!

Too many to choose from, but some of my favorites are the 2 that Dan Akroyd did as a man who was selling Dangerous toys and costumes. The dangerous toys one was where he was selling bag of Glass and Switchblade Johnny, the only doll with two switchblades that come out of his hands. The costume skit was equally funny with an all black costume called the invisible pedestrian.
In recent years the only show that made me laugh from begging to end was the first time the Rock was on. Nick Cottrell was hillarious.
I also loved Christopher Walken's 'The Continental. Especially when he invites the woman in and asks her to smell these scents. "Smell this: You like? That's the smell of Jasmine. Now smell this, it's chloraform."

Well, if they have, I've never seen them, they must be on satellite, which our posh environs frown on so I ain't got one ;)

I don't like that Conan though from what I've caught on things like nostalgia and clippit shows - e.g he was on The Osbournes this week and he was King of the trivia chat backstage. Sometimes it's better to just be quiet than speak ****

Wow, what a great topic. Going through most of the posts have jolted my memory of past sketches that hit the mark. Some of the skits and shows that made me really laugh include:

The whole show with Jim Carrey, especially the Roxbury skit (the best of them all), the "I'll see you in hell" skit, and the lifeguard at the hot tub skit.

Jerry Seinfeld as Elijah the prophet at a seder with Mike Meyers as the Jewish dad.

All the Coneheads skits, especially the one at Halloween when they hand out beer and "fried chicked embryos."

The Schmidt's G*a*y Beer commercial with Chris Farley and Adam Sandler.

Matt Foley (the first one with Christina Applegate is the best).

The bald music teacher and his wife, played by Will Ferrel and Ana Gasteyer. Those song medleys are so funny!

The David Spade Hollywood Minute thing on Weekend Update.

Celebrity Jeopardy w/Burt Reynolds (a.k.a. Turd Ferguson) and Connery. "I'll take 's'words for $100."

The Chippendale's audition with Farley and Patrick Swayze.

The Continental with Christopher Walken was really good.

Love Boat: The Next Generation with Patrick Stewart. I think they had Tim Meadows dressed up as Isaac the bartender with a Geordi visor. Picard/Stubbing would tell him "Engage" to start the drink mixer. There was also someone (Melanie Hutsell?) as Charo with a guy dressed as a Ferengi. Farley was a short, fat Number One.

I can't remember much of anything too specific from the Not-Ready-For-Primetime Player era that was really funny except for the Cheeseburger diner skit, 'It's a floor wax and a dessert topping' commercial, the Bass-o-matic, Roseanne Rosannadanna, and the point/counterpoint segments of WE. Dan Aykroyd would always start his argument with something like, "Jane you unbelievable slut." :)

There was a skit like 18 years ago with someone as a Heisman Trophy winner, and Eddie Murphy as Nobel Prize winner Bishop Desmond Tutu. They were on a show like the McLaughlin group together. The whole skit centered around Bishop Tutu's breaking of ther Heisman Trophy.

Another really funny skit was the intro when Tom Hanks hiosted the 5th. time. He comes out and says it is it's his fifth time, some trumpets blare, and someone (Chevy Chase???) comes out and escorts him to "the 5 timer's club." At the club are Elliot Gould, Paul Simon, whoever escorted him, and Mr. Steve Martin. They are all sitting in robes and are being catered to by waiters etc. Someone asks Hanks if he wants anything and Hanks says yes. They ring a bell and Jon Lovitz comes in. (this was right after he had left.) Hanks gets up and says something like "What are you doing here?" Lovitz replies "Hey, it's a job. Mr. Steve Martin, can I get you anything?"

I fell out of my chair laughing at that skit.

The show with Shatner was one of the best episodes ever. There was the Star Trek spoofs, a TJ Hooker spoof, and some other really goofy stuff.

I can't believe thse hadn't been mentioned.

Jinglehimer Junction, Introducing Fready frindship with Uburto Unity, Carrie Careing, and Kristy Kindness.

And the Schwettie Balls and Wieners skits, They are especially funny when you imagin what they would sound like if you really did tune into a radio cooking show.

I also got a kick out of the "Big Red" commercial. I don't know why, I just think its halarious.

Also I agree with the Great VH1 Neil Diamond and Blue Oyster Cult skits. And the Harry Carey skits are my all time faves. Farrel ruled.

Great re-occuring skits include:
Spartan Cheerleaders
Waynes World
Ladies Man
Nat X
Cleb Jepordy
Hollywood update with David Spade

Others like Roxbury had their moments, but as a group were not that great.

There are just so many.....

Arseman, your post reminded me of two funny skits that I forgot. The Heisman Trophy skit reminded me of the OJ skit that they did when he got acquited. Tim Meadows was OJ and was doing commentary for NBC football. He telestrates a football play and ends up spelling out "I did it." :)

The second one was a parody of the McLaughlin Group with Frank Sinatra (Phil Hartman, RIP), Mike Meyers, as one of those Rat Pack-era singers, and Sting as Billy Idol.

Sinatra: OK, who's better, Ava Gardner or [another woman's name]? I disqualify myself cause I've had 'em both.

One of my favorites seems to be lesser known for some reason (no one remembers it when I bring it up). Jason Priestly hosted, and the sketch was of New Kids on the Block performing on Arsenio (they all refer to him as "Ar-seen-io" throughout). They did a song called "Girl" with lyrics like "Y-O-U, spells girl" and "Girl, you're wicked awesome," delivered with a heavy Boston accent. The coup de grace occurred at the "break it down" section where everyone danced around a pirouetting Mike Myers. Absolute brilliance.

Mad Slanted Powers
08-16-2006, 11:55 PM
The only thing I recall from the Jason Priestly episode was his disatrous figure skating sketch.

Sprockets was always one of my favorites. Germany's most disturbing home videos was on one episode:

"He has kicked the man in the testicles! Look - the pain was so intense he has to vomit."

"Here they have come across the body of a tramp, which in itself is not so disturbing. Until it is turned over to revealů. ANTS! ANTS! ANTS!"

The rest is here - http://snltranscripts.jt.org/90/90asprockets.phtml

Dana Carvey as Jimmy Stewart reciting poems and Dieter says "That poem pulls down my pants and taunts me." When Jimmy tries to touch Dieter's monkey - "Ow, the son of a b*tch bit me!"

The rest is here - http://snltranscripts.jt.org/89/89asprockets.phtml

Or when Woody Harrelson was on there as Gregor Voss, countercultural filmmaker behind such films as The Dead Coat and Irritant #4. - "Gregor Voss, your presence intimidates me to the point of humiliation. Would you care to strike me?" Also, "That film looks at me while I'm naked and calls to its friends."

No transcript on that site for that one, so I got that info from the SNL 20th Anniversary book.

So many good sketches over the years. Just about anything anyone says makes me think of some SNL sketch.

Edit - Looking at the book, I just realized Jason Priestly was in the Sprockets Dating Game sketch.

Oh man, I have and always will remember that! :D

You cited some brilliant stuff, let me add from my memory:

Sandler's Donnie Wahlberg pronounciation of "Hotel Acwwwododations"
The whole thing about the rumor that they had people dress them, then they had that lyric of "Girl, you are wicked awesome, whenever I put on my own shirt" (in a high pitched voice starting with "whenever" lol although I could never tell if they said "put on" or "buy").
I believe they abused "worrrd" in that sketch as well? lol lol lol

Also from the Priestly episode:
Sprockets where Jason says "hello, Helllllllllmutt."

And let us not forget "The Life and Times of Johnny Hildo", the story of a college kid who is called Dildo so often that he snaps and goes postal. His cellmate was played by Kevin Nealon and I'll never forget his line of "My name's Larry. Larry Bagina."

I can't say it's my favorite skit ever, but in terms of stand-alone, one time skits, I still laugh at the skit they did right after Dubya was elected. It was the one where he was giving his State of the Union speech.

All paraphrased:

"Texas has gone communist." "The state of Florida has broken off of the continent." "The Great Lakes are fire, and even I know that's bad." And quite funny given what happened with Cheney: "Remember I'm trying to do this alone after my vice president died." "Sir, you shot him in a hunting accident."

Perhaps the most clever sketch from the season passed . . . http://youtube.com/watch?v=ymJ50Ql7EF4&mode=related&search=

No Funnier Game Show then "Who's More Grizzled?" with Robert Duvall and Garth Brooks. http://youtube.com/watch?v=iTYFThMwvik

Natalie Portman rapping and Blue Oyster Cult: Behind The Music are definitely two of my favorites.
Almost anything involving the Farley/Sandler/Hartman era is gold, like: Schmidt's Gay Beer, Farley's Chippendales sketch, Matt Foley, Happy Fun Ball, Hartman's Clinton, among others.

Do not taunt Happy Fun Ball.

Sprockets was pretty good. I like this one (http://snltranscripts.jt.org/91/91tsprockets.phtml) with Woody Harrelson as Gregor Voss. I think they might have that transcript associated with the wrong show, though. Since the Berlin Wall just came down, I think it was from the 11/18/89 show instead.

"Excuse me Gregor, but you have disturbed me almost to the point of insanity. There, I am insane now."

I kinda dig the one with the whiny self-help guy who becomes a Senator.

The Merryville Brothers skit last night was the funniest thing SNL has done in years; excluding Digital Shorts.

^Then you need to watch the Finger Lake sisters. Kristin Wig is brilliant.

The one with Will Farrell is great, but I didn't really care for the others. Wig is a great comedian, and can deliever a line better than most, but it seems as if she is running the show. Alot of her reoccuring characters are being run into the ground quickly. I won't even watch Gilly anymore. It's getting to the sad point that I perfer to watch the show when female hosts are on because then there is less of her on the show.

SNL had an all-commercial show on last night. Those are often cool to see.

They also had a backstage show on that was really good.

Although I did find the Danna Carvey "my first season we weren't even picked up for an entire season" tidbit interesting along with the Shinade (sp?) O'Conner stuff.

I forgot to watch them, but as you say there probably wouldn't have been much new. Plus, I had DVR to catch up on.
