Gilda Radner and Bill Murray

I keep thinking about a thing I read on Ye Olde Internet earlier this week. It was a passage from the “Saturday Night Live” oral history, Live from New York: An Uncensored History of Saturday Night Live. Gilda Radner was a regular “SNL” cast member from 1975 to 1980, and at one time dated Bill Murray, though their relationship was stormy and contentious. After five years, she left the show to pursue film work, and eventually married fellow comedian Gene Wilder in 1984 (after divorcing from first husband, “SNL” bandleader G.E. Smith).

In 1986, Radner was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. She suffered through chemotherapy and radiation treatments, and went into remission. But two years after first being diagnosed, the cancer came back. She passed away in May 1989 at the age of 42. In the following passage, Bill Murray recounts the last night he spent with Radner.

“Saturday Night Live” Plays “Game Of ‘Game Of Thrones’”

What Year Is It?

Zach Galifianakis first “Saturday Night Live” hosting appearance was maybe one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen (“That’s so Raven?”), so I had high hopes for his second stint this weekend. Alas, the show was off-kilter and random, and not in the good way Zach is generally known for. But one sketch in particular made me crack up — watch as Zach plays a dragon costume-clad “Game of Thrones” fan on the show “Game of ‘Game of Thrones’,” who keeps getting the, well, hardest questions for a “GoT” fan to answer. Jaime Lannister himself ¬†makes an appearance.¬†Swooooon!

"You know what's in my Tumblr? Regret."

Or more specifically, as Drunk Uncle’s brother-in-law Peter Drunklage, who is arguably the drunkest of them all. Kids these days don’t even wear garters anymore. And all they care about is “Tumblr me, Tumblr me.” As for his Tumblr blog? Full of regret. Marco? Rubio! Amazing.

Oh, Stefon, how we have missed you so! The “Saturday Night Live” skit featuring Bill Hader cracking up at his own jokes actually managed to top itself this week. I cannot even tell you the major snorts I snorted after hearing Stefon’s impression of “Donald Duck waking up from a Vietnam dream.” Also, maybe the best line ever? “This place has everything: shutes, ladders, the outdoor concert from a Zoloft commercial.” Indeed!
