Nightlife Correspondent Stefon Is Alive And Well In This New York Times Article

There is nothing funny about the plight of China’s high tech workers. Employees who make iPhones and other tech devices for exportation overseas work long hours in difficult conditions with little compensation. Times reporter Dan Levin’s article, “The Demanding Off-Hour Escapes of China’s High-Tech Workers,” explores how these workers deal with their stresses and blow…

An Open Letter To The New Movie “Adore” (Which Is Eerily Similar To That Andy Samberg & Justin Timberlake Song “Mother Lover”)

Dear the movie “Adore,” starring Naomi Watts and Robin Wright,

Let me start by saying that I’m not here as another social media troll who just wants to make fun of your semi-absurd plot. That would just be too easy. I know that you didn’t just turn the satirical “Mother Lover” into a pouty,…

The “Saturday Night Live” Season Finale Was A Real Tearjerker

I don’t generally expect my eyes to blink back tears and a lump to swell in my throat while watching an episode of “Saturday Night Live,” but there’s a first time for everything. Saturday night’s “SNL” finale featured the show bidding three of its best male cast members — Fred Armisen and Bill Hader, –…

Weekend Cry: Bill Murray, On The Death Of Gilda Radner

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…

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

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…

Peter Dinklage Turns Up Drunk On “Saturday Night Live”

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.

“SNL”‘s Stefon Shares His Spring Break Plans With The World

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…

Watch Adam Levine’s Shirtless “SNL” Monologue With Cameron Diaz!

Adam Levine shows off his abs and multiple tattoos while delivering his opening monologue on “Saturday Night Live” on Saturday (January 26) in New York City.
The 33-year-old Maroon 5 front man was joined by Andy Samberg, Cameron Diaz and Jerry Seinfeld who all claimed they wanted to coach him on his hosting — an obvious spoof on “The Voice.” Check

The “SNL” Crew Obviously Goes To My Starbucks

On this week’s criminally unfunny “Saturday Night Live,” featuring underused host Jennifer Lawrence, there was one actually hilarious moment; the show did a faux commercial for Starbucks’ new enhanced Verismo system, which gives you the authentic Starbucks customer experience. Nobody spelling your name right? Check. Getting your drink wrong? Yup. Excessively long wait times? Uh…

“Kenan & Kel” Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together

“The truth is Kenan [Thompson] does not want to be seen with me in any form of media, or even have my name mentioned around him… There is no bad blood on my side, I’m not declining a reunion, I know the fans love the show and would love to see some type of appearance with…

Buckle Up & Put Your Sunglasses On Wrong, It’s A Guy Fieri “Saturday Night Live” Sketch!

Ha HA! In the wake of The New York Times’ hilariously abysmal review of Guy Fieri’s new Times Square restaurant, the bleached blonde Food Network host — who puts something called “donkey sauce” on everything — almost “appeared” on “Saturday Night Live” this weekend. For some reason, the sketch never aired on the broadcast — did Fieri promise “SNL” producer…

Anne Hathaway Nails Claire Danes Cry-Face In “Homeland” Spoof On “SNL”

There goes the chin! Anne Hathaway’s impersonation of Claire Danes as bipolar CIA agent Carrie Mathison from “Homeland” was incredibly spot-on and ridiculously funny. But I gotta say, Bill Hader’s Saul (played on the show by Mandy Patinkin) is so good, it’s eerie. Watch the sketch above! JAZZ FREAKOUT!

G.O.B. Tampons: Because The Republican Party Knows Your Body

G.O.B. tampons: they’re feminine hygiene products by the people who know a woman’s body best — old Republican men! With flaps and wings and widgets and hooziwhatsits for all your confusing lady parts, a woman could not have invented it better herself. (No, seriously, she couldn’t have: she’s not allowed.)

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Does “Magic Mike” On “Saturday Night Live”

We already knew Joseph Gordon-Levitt could dance, but we had no idea he could dance like this. The actor hosted “Saturday Night Live” this weekend and took on pal Channing Tatum’s stripper moves for his opening monologue. Way to drop it like it’s hot, Joe. Apparently, however, NBC wasn’t too thrilled with the skit, a…

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Hosting “Saturday Night Live” This Week!

The last time Joseph Gordon-Levitt hosted “Saturday Night Live,” he performed a musical number and did a righteous backflip during his opening monologue. Oh yeah, and Number #1 Fan Julie Gerstein was in the country to watch him on TV. Not this time! JG is on vacay while JGL is on “SNL,” but hopefully she&#8217…

Life According To Kristen Wiig’s “SNL” Characters

This weekend’s “Saturday Night Live” was a bittersweet finale, as one of our favorite funny ladies, Kristen Wiig, said farewell to the show after being on the cast for seven years. While we can’t wait to see more of Kristen on the big screen — especially after she killed it in “Bridesmaids” — we will mi…

Kristen Wiig’s “Saturday Night Live” Goodbye Was A Total Tearjerker

Hate goodbyes? Total crybaby? Then prepare yourself, because Kristen Wiig’s “Saturday Night Live” send-off made this goodbye-hating crybaby bawl. Seriously, I cried harder watching this than I did at my own high school graduation — and “SNL” didn’t even use that “125,600 525,600 Minutes” song from “Rent.” The only thing that takes the edge off Wiig&#8217…

Mick Jagger Brings Sex, Drugs & Rock ‘N; Roll To “Saturday Night Live”

The man who taught several generations about sex, drugs and rock ‘n roll is hosting this week’s season finale of “Saturday Night Live.” Sadly, Mick Jagger’s probably got less of a drug problem these days than certain other recent hosts who shall remain nameless. [Pop Culture Brain]…
