Last night's 'SNL' featuring 'Girls' creator Lena Dunham only ticked so far up from last week's abysmal show with Jim Parsons of 'The Big Bang Theory,' but the longrunning NBC sketch comedy series' March 29 return will bring back a much more dependable host. Louis C.K. will return for his second hosting gig after 2012, but who will accompany the eternal sadsack 'Louie' star?
The talk show is a tried and true 'SNL' template, giving the cast a great way to break out various impressions without having to get too creative with the set-up. This time, we're given a glimpse at "Pimpin' Pimpin' Pimpin'", a talk show where Katt Williams sits on a strange white throne and interviews/abuses his guests.
In one of the weirdest sketches of last night's 'SNL,' Nasim Pedrad and guest host Lena Dunham play the teenage hosts of their own web show. Broadcasting from a basement (where Bobby Moynihan lives and plays video games), "What Are You Even Doing? You're Being Crazy" is exactly the kind of show two young girls with a limited understanding of the world would put on. And yet, somehow, they've booked 'Mad Men' star Jon Hamm as a guest.
With Lena Dunham hosting the show, there was no way 'SNL' wasn't going to do some kind of 'Girls' parody. And with the recent release of 'Son of God' and the impending arrival of 'Noah,' there was no way the show wasn't going to take a shot at the recent biblical movie revival. So here we are, with a hilarious fake trailer for 'Girl,' which simultaneously skewers the story of Adam and Even and your average episode of HBO's 'Girls.'
The world is a little more terrifying than usual these days. With Russian forces occupying Ukraine's Crimean peninsula, the internet has already started throwing around references to World War III. Thankfully, 'SNL' is here to take something that has us terrified and make us laugh instead. The show's solution? Bring in Liam Neeson.
Tonight's new episode of 'SNL' offers 'Girls' star Lena Dunham as its host, which should be interesting. Though Dunham is an award winning actress, writer, producer and director, she's not known for her work on stage, and -- as this is a live show -- her appearance could lead to some awkward moments. Read on for our review of tonight's episode!
This past weekend's March 'SNL' premiere with first-time host Jim Parsons of 'The Big Bang Theory' proved something of a misfire, but a little awkwardness never scared off 'Girls' creator and star Lena Dunham. The always-buzzing HBO star officially hit the Studio 8H stage for her first round of 'SNL' promos, and if you're wondering if there's nudity, we saved you the trouble!
Everyone can agree that child actors are generally unbearable and drag down otherwise good movies. So what happens when you recast this year's Oscar nominees with a bunch of wooden, smiling and occasionally barely coherent kids? You get the Spotlightz! acting camp, which recreates some of the past year's most acclaimed films in unspeakably awful ways. Thanks for that, 'SNL.'
Snarky movie reviews are nothing new (especially in the cruel world of internet journalism), but few people can deliver bitter sarcasm and loathing quite like Taran Killam in the guise of an 1860s newspaper reporter named Jebediah Atkinson. Inexplicably torn out of his century and thrust onto the 'SNL' stage, Atkinson appeared on the latest Weekend Update to talk about the Oscars and proceeded to tear cinematic history a new one.
When you make a movie as emotionally draining and difficult to watch as '12 Years a Slave,' you're bound to make the vast majority of the people watching uncomfortable. After all, if people aren't upset by a film that tracks a man being dehumanized and treated as property, you're obviously doing something wrong. But if a film is that hard to watch, what was it like to make? Thankfully, 'SNL' is here to show us all of the nitty gritty details.
