Watch him move and groove in the clip above! We have a fine combination of thoughtful cultural observations along with the physical comedy of John Mulaney dancing. Final Thoughts Talk about an episode that makes narrowing something down the best sketch or even sketches a true job of work. Stiller-as-Cohen notes at the top of his statement that he had some help from the guys who wrote the Oscar-winning Green Book. What is she doing during the Beyonce Two prompt? And, is there any way to explain to a white person the bit about the Tom Joyner cruise with Sinbad and Anita Baker? The sketch is well executed technically on pretty much all levels. It honestly plays much better than it sounds. He and the writers of the sketch practice that specificity here.

In fact, Cecily Strong honestly seems to be the only one during this particular sketch to get the memo on doing much of anything. The singing and dancing that is often seen here came later. What looks like a standard game show sketch on a show that could honestly stand to ease up on the game show sketches ends up being something so much more layered. Pete, it was agony for those who were forced to watch your ridiculous hairline. Like most comics, Mulaney stayed in his wheelhouse with a lengthy stretch of straight stand-up. He marshals that machine, and all its parts, like a maestro. How do they stay so straight-faced? They are better even than when they have a bunch of people who act all serious in the background of congressional hearing, news conference and courtroom sketches.

As expected the show kicked off with the C-Span coverage of the Congressional Oversight Committee Hearings of Michael Cohen, once again played by Ben Stiller. The big man in the three-piece suit is a riot when he hops into the frame. So the joke goes deeper than the obvious points of belonging to a black Greek letter organization and attending a historically black college. He even called it the ghetto Hokey Pokey! What if you voluntarily signed up for it? An all-time sketch combining Manhattan specificity and Les Miserables that you knew would be an all-time sketch as you saw it unfold. Because, again, should it be weird that this white man knows black people and black stuff this well? I mean, if Martin Luther King Jr.

An older gentleman in the vest and tie is having a genuine good time. Like, Martin Lawrence made jokes about this song in his Runteldat concert film — back in 2002! Robert Kraft Beck Bennett drew the expected jokes. In the segment, Mulaney plays a software engineer attending the of his girlfriend's cousin. Not only does he have a mean salsa sway, but he impressively hits Beyoncé's signature move from the. Not only does the guy know how to construct jokes — like, for real, honest jokes with setups, punchlines, kickers, etc. The sketch is fine with a coterie of the cast running through solid impressions of the major players with surprise guest Hader relishing his role as agitated Rep. Neither of those has great impressions, unfortunately.

She also gets to introduce a new character alongside Aidy Bryant during Weekend Update — which is always a treat, to break the monotony — and break over the smell of a lot of raw meat. And he delivers on that expectation, far past the obvious stand-up monologue to open the show. The tall woman in the black ruffled number was really, really good. It also has a huge swath of the cast who are clearly having a great time. The celebrity cameos for Trump administration members can be awful Robert De Niro or really fun Ben Stiller but also showing a lack of faith in the actual cast.

Just too much real-world wrong there despite the gender reversal. Topics included his parents inquiry into whether his now wife, who is Jewish, might consider converting to Catholicism. Insert comment about jelly and jam. Bring back Steve Martin, funnier and a far greater talent! I love this sketch — watched it a million times. But when Redd entered as Empire star Jussie Smollett the audience audibly gasped. .

All of these things are in my black bones. All posts are submitted by volunteer contributors who have agreed to our. I was ready for a surefire hit when John Mulaney returned for his second time hosting March 2, and he delivered a delight. You probably know that , but you might not be aware that he's actually got some pretty good dance moves. You know that strange look of shame and unhappiness I have in my eyes at all times especially after sex and it was all forced on me at birth? Mulaney, a former writer, had a high bar to scale given that his last outing included the brilliant but, with help from friend Bill Hader and a very game cast, the episode included several slam dunk sketches and less filler than usual. . .
