As expected, this past weekend's all-new 'SNL' featuring 'The Hangover Part III's Zach Galifianakis as host and musical guest Of Monsters and Men offered up a few solid sketches, but varied across the board for the bearded funnyman's third turn. Things could have gotten even stranger however, as a new un-aired sketch teams Galifianakis with Bill Hader for a retro detective comedy, but did this one deserve to make the cut?
After an early marketing campaign that did everything in its power to hide plot details, 'The Hangover Part 3' has started revealing its secrets at a rapid-fire pace. First, there was the recent trailer that finally let us in on the plot of the film. Now, we have the first clip, which sheds some light on what appears to be the film's main conflict.
Although much of last night's SNL was fairly standard (albeit, very funny) stuff, there was one sketch where it felt like host Zach Galifiankis was allowed to run wild. The scene found the 'Hangover' star playing the host of a public access TV show about how to entertain guests in your home and...well...let's just say that you have to watch it.
Some SNL hosts just feel like they were born to be on that stage and Zach Galifiankis is one of them. Rather than do a traditional monologue, he performed six minutes of his oddball, avant garde stand-up comedy. It was a great reminder that he may be a big movie star now, but he's still one of the great modern comedians.
May will no doubt prove to be one of 'SNL's' biggest months in years, with the recent announcements of alumni Kristen Wiig and 'Argo's' Ben Affleck to host, but this Saturday's all-new installment featuring 'The Hangover Part 3' star Zach Galifianakis and Of Monsters and Men will certainly kick things off right. Get a sneak peek of Galifianakis' third-time hosting inside!
'The Internship' star Vince Vaughn's recent 'SNL' hosting gig might have been a mixed bag of cobras, Vaughn not having hosted the late-night sketch comedy series in about 15 years, but the newest host revealed during the airing is more than enough to have us excited. 'The Hangover Part 3' star Zach Galifianakis will take the stage once again on May 4, joined by Icelandic group Of Monsters and Men, but will the third time for Galifianakis be as successful as his third 'Hangover'?
Every 'The Hangover 3' trailer and TV spot so far has sold chaos and only chaos, so it's refreshing that the new (and possibly final) trailer for the trilogy capper lets us know what the movie is actually about. Unlike 'The Hangover Part II,' this is no carbon copy remake of the first film -- it couldn't look more different than what we've seen before.
