“Pete! What did I say?! We’re not doing an Aaron Sorkin sketch!”
The Aaron Sorkin parody sketch has been done before, done well, and then ceaselessly imitated. It’s old material, people, and the world doesn’t need any more old– wait. Wait, no, no, we were wrong, because Seth Meyers has just breathed spectacular new life into the Aaron Sorkin sketch, thanks to a cleverly designed send-up from last night’s episode of ‘Late Night With Seth Meyers.’
All the pieces are here – and that’s kind of the point, this whole thing is meant to both imitate and mock scads of Sorkin-isms – and the self-relfective manner in which Meyers and crew treat this whole thing is, well, it’s almost enough to make you want to give an impassioned speech of your own.
