How obscure are the most obscure Saturday Night Live cast members?


By web gangsta | Published:

We all know that Saturday Night Live has become part of the American weekend newscap. It’s a cultural institution, whether you fully appreciate their sophomoric humor or not.

And some cast members go on to fame and fortune, and can totally count SNL as their trampoline into the big times (Tina Fey, Will Ferrell, Jimmy Fallon), while others can toil away for years and not become as big of a household name over time as you’d think (Tim Meadows).

Live From New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live

We all watch Saturday Night Live faithfully every week because it’s still the best place to find topical comedy and energizing live performances of the latest artist-of-the-week.  (To be honest, TiVo is our friend here, as Sunday morning sprinting is about all SNL usually deserves these days).

And yes, we’re regularly disappointed with the content taken on the whole.  Digital Shorts should be funny week-in, week-out… but they’ve been more hit-or-miss these days. Continue reading THE 25 MOST REPEATED SNL CHARACTERS

Last season’s season finale proved that Justin Timberlake is the ultimate Saturday Night Live host. 

Practically every skit he’s ever in has been a slamdunk.  He can sing, he can act, he has absolutely no qualms about doing any thing for a laugh — all qualities for the most successful SNL hosts.

He’s won Emmy awards for his song-writing skills on the show too. Continue reading THE BEST SNL SKITS EVER (SO FAR…)

Parodies of Lonely Island’s SNL Digital Shorts


By web gangsta | Published:

You’ve seen the SNL DIGITAL SHORTS on Saturday Night Live for the past few years.  Many people have said that they’ve been the most consistently funny part of the show since they’ve begun.

All the shorts are the brainchildren of The Lonely Island comedy group – Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone.  (Click the album cover image, buy their album — it comes with a DVD with many of their Digital Shorts, some never seen on TV)

They won an Emmy award for the Justin Timberlake collaboration, Dick in a Box.  But other Internet users are taking notice, and making their own versions of the original films.   The first big Digital Short, Lazy Sunday, was the start of the parody run, but as you can see, it certainly wasn’t going to be the last.   Here are 14 different parodies that you may not have seen before:
