Will Forte Shares Sketches That Got Cut From ‘Saturday Night Live’
Last May, Seth Meyers unveiled a new recurring sketch on Late Night: Second Chance Theatre, which allows some of the host’s former Saturday Night Live brethren to share sketches that they never made it to air on SNL. Will Forte was his first star, and his never-aired sketch was a wonderfully funny and strange instant classic. SNL blew it; they should have aired it.
Forte was back on last night’s Late Night, and although he and Meyers had not prepped a new Second Chance Theatre offering, they did take the time to share a few ideas for the next time he’s on the show, a bevy of hilariously weird possibilities. Personally speaking, we’d love to see Forte’s metal detector sketch, if only because that would involve getting a car and a bunch of sand into Meyers’ normally pristine studio.
