Hey, Mangy: True, whatever edge show had was long gone or a myth, but there was a level of self-satisfaction that arose during this period. Breaking during sketches - Fey + Fallen cracking each other up on update. There was a different vibe.

In theory I celebrate what Fey represented, but I lean more to the anarchistic spirit of Michael O'Donoghue or eclectic nature of Jim Downey/ Adam McKay years.

I can't put my finger on why Wiig represents Burnettization more than McKinnon. Both talented and funny, no doubt. But a 'canned ham' quality that bugs me.

"Got concrete rhymes, been rappin' for ten years and

"Teenage angst has paid off well/ Now I'm bored and old"


"Drunk as hell, but no throwin' up

Half way home and my pager still blowin' up"


"I'm tired of living all alone
yeah, nobody ever calls me on the phone
But when things start getting bad
I just play my music louder"

People forget what a pop culture phenomenon Lovitz was circa 85-86. His Harvey Fierstein impression was a guilty favorite ("You'll need a ram van for that"). And the recurring sketch with Hanks where they were 2 losers trying to pick up chicks - each incarnation showing them more and more desperate.

Keenan's not my favorite, but he's been a workhouse for 15 years now and has some fun characters (Lavar Ball and Big Papi are always good for a few laughs). You can't tell me that Nasim Pedrad or Ellen Cleghorne made a bigger impression.

I certainly understand people not liking Armisen; he has an offputting quality that makes it all too easy to believe that he's some kind of creep irl. But he was one of the most well-rounded performers the show ever saw. He is a very good mimic, and even better at actual sketch acting, had musical and improv acumen, and a weird, identifiable sense of humor that definitely left a mark on the show over a very long tenure.

Nasim Pedrad was actually funny. Keenan is everything wrong with the show. His long tenure is just sad. If it truly is a Carol Burnett world, he's not even Tim Conway.

It was the stated goal of the show early on to NEVER be that. Skits would be rejected as 'too Carol Burnett' - and the way they would crack each other up; breaking character on that show was considered tacky (not sure if that's the word I want, but you get it) + beneath what they were trying to do.

Some thoughts from a non--participant:

- I don't think it's fair to hold performers from the "institution" period of the show's life (pretty much anything beingb the '90s) for not living up to the standards of the original cast.  The show has evolved, and if it's not as anarchic as it used to be, well, that's on Lorne and the writers.

- I know this is based on performance as a cast member, but Franken's impact as a writer makes me chafe at him going this early.

- That's what I think the biggest sea change on the show was.  With the original cast -- and in large part during the Crystal/Guest/Shearer dream season -- the performers were also writers.  They were with their material from the get--go, and even when performing someone else's material, knew enough about the guts of comedy writing to bring something extra to a sketch.  Later though, the cast had really been more of a rep company for the writers' room.
My karmic debt must be huge.

Somewhat Controversial Viewpoint: Season 1 is the show's greatest season - raw and daring- and power trio of Chevy, Lorne, & Michael O'Donoghue were inventing on the go; resisting convention and set formula. Belushi was a force of nature, and the Albert Brooks proto-digital bit segments were consistently brilliant. Also strong female writers that put a feminist voice/perspective in the mix.

That said, my sense of humor was most shaped by the peak Eddie years of 82-83 + 83-84.

And I think the 95-96 overhaul was just as impressive as 86-87, maybe even more. The first 3 years of that group kills in my memory.

I expected the present era to get short shrift, but I am continually surprised by who gets targeted.  I have no idea how you pick out versatile, longrunning performers like Moynihan or Bennett (base on his....Putin? Really?) as the weak links from a list that still contains the likes of Breuer, Cleghorn, Sweeney, Schneider, Morgan, or Villasenor.

Bennett in particular is a very strong comedic actor that can give great straight man in a political or game show sketch but also do big character work, and in particular has a knack for grounding the weird shit like the Hide And Seek sketch in a way that doesn't give away the oddball turn immediately.  His digital shorts with Kyle Mooney have been one of the most distinctive flavors of the show since the Lonely Island days, and he is such a more versatile performer that I would think that at the least, Mooney would be the first of the two to go.

We'll probably have an ongoing debate about the merits of versatility vs comedic presence as we wind down.   What is "better"?  Someone with a lot of versatility but no real comedic presence of their own, like Pharoah or Villasenor (or arguably, Sudeikis and Meadows), or performers with only one, very distinctive, note (Mooney, Norm, Morgan, Spade)?

Molt has always had the same strategy: ride one horse hard til it wins or collapses. I always see the point as to spread the love around; not worry about winning, but push forward my faves/underdogs.

Different strokes as the man said.

As out of whack as it is, I can't make myself downvote Norm. At least not yet.

Jim Breuer is a lame stand up, but he was good on the show. Give me 'The Joe Pesci Show' over anything Moynihan or Bennett have ever done.

Franken going out before Miller is insanity. Miller did one thing, and that thing has aged about as well as Betamax. Franken was a key writer for 20 years. You are all wrong. WRONG!

Quote:Hey, Mangy: True, whatever edge show had was long gone or a myth, but there was a level of self-satisfaction that arose during this period. Breaking during sketches - Fey + Fallen cracking each other up on update. There was a different vibe.

I think Fey was terrific, and Fallon was a pile of cancer, who made "breaking" during sketches the joke. The best break moment remains the Radner/Bergen sketch - "We all can't be brainy like Fern here!"

My choices are based on who is the most adept at sketch comedy. I love Norm, but come the fuck on.
