What is your favorite Saturday Night Live skit? I love it when Jessie Jackson read
Dr. Seuss's "Green Eggs & Ham" the week Dr. Seuss died. He did it in his best orator cadence. I was crying it was so funny. What a moving tribute.

1. That was fucking AWESOME. I loved that.
I also loved the "60 minutes"-like expose of the novelty factory.

2. Colonel Angus...
I thought was very clever, and was impressed the performers could do it live, without messing up.

Though "Hey, nice penis" was pretty funny too.

40. saw him on a HBO special years ago
of course he was a bit raunchier than on SNL. There was what appeared to be a 90 old passed out bishop in a wheelchair the whole time. Guido said he had given him a quaalude for the plane trip over and he hadn't moved in 12 hours.

"It's a desert topping! It's a floor wax!"

"That's great bass!"

All of my favorites were with the original cast, long, long ago. :shrug:

13. Glenn Close hosting at Christmastime 1992.
She brought her neighbors from back home to sing a parody of "Silver Bells."

But they're quick and
He sorta looks like Elvis!

16. On SNL, they don't do skits, your kid's school does skits
The term, unless you intend derision, is sketch. My favorite was any sketch with Gilda Radner.

18. Phil Hartman as Clinton at McDonald's
Bill Clinton is supposed to be out jogging but he heads right for the nearest McD's and scarfs down loads of junk food. One of his Secret Service guards says that if he told the First Lady about this she would have a fit. Clinton says, "There's a LOT of things you're not going to tell the First Lady."

Phil Hartman was great.

37. I always thought that one was on the Best of Eddie Murphy release
but looking at it again, I guess it's not. I swear they've done it on some kind of clips or compilation show though.

How the hell did Eddie Murphy go from being so funny to so ... not?

50. That is the question for the ages
I HAVE seen it on older Best of Eddie Murphy tapes, but it's not on the Best of Eddie Murphy DVD--probably because it talks about killing people, and after 9/11 we can't have that.

26. THE POINT IS MOOT!
I think I remember that skit...lol..but yeah, to this day, I can't think about Green Eggs and Ham without thinking about Jesse doing it. I remember some of that creeping into my rendition when I read that to my daughter. I read a lot of Dr. Suess to her but I'm not sure if that was because it was her favorite or mine.

27. Phil Hartman as Charlton Heston recording Madonna's book "Sex"
to made into audio tapes. Also the three way Presidential debate with Clinton, Bush & Perot. And Jason Sudekis as Joe Biden & Tina Fey as Palin in their VP debate. Love all 3 skits.

28. I have 3 - Two of them involve Steve Martin
The first is Steve Martin and Gilda Radner are in a crowded bar with disco playing. They turn to notice each other, and the disco fades out to dance music (and the rest of the people in the bar stop moving). They do a great dance number with little bits of comedy in it, running around the entire studio then returning to the original set where they take up their original spots; the disco music comes back on, and everyone returns to their conversations.

The second is just Bill Murray and Steve Martin. I think Steve starts it out by coming out on an empty stage, squinting into the distance and saying, "What the hell is that?" putting emphasis on different words each time. He's soon joined by Bill, and they both wonder, "What the hell is that?" or answer, "I don't know what the HELL it is!" At the end they both decide they know what it is and walk off stage confidently and then lean back into the shot with confused looks, and Steve angrily asking, "What the HELL was that?"

And finally, Eddie Murphy's, "James Brown Celebrity Hot Tub Party!" Gonna get in the hot tub! Will it make me wet? (back-up band) YES! Gonna get in the hot tub! Will it make me sweat? (back-up band) YES! Well, well, well...

34. Belushi in the grave yard covered in snow.
If you don't remember it, he is made up like an old man and walks through a grave yard (a real one, not the stage) describing how all the other cast members died and how he was the only one left. It's weird, especially since he went first.

42. Celebrity Jeopardy - Turd Ferguson
While I loved a lot of the original cast of SNL, this one makes me laugh so hard each time I see it. Sean Connery, Burt Reynolds and French Stewart are the celebs and Will Farrell is Trebek.

Watch, enjoy & laugh:

45. 'Samurai Delicatessen' with John Belushi and 'Land Shark' with Chevy Chase which always reminded me
Of Monty Python's 'Spanish Inquisition.'

I howled when they did those Land Shark skits, it was all I could do to keep from rofl. Perfect timing...

The Coneheads from France weren't bad, either.

You can look them up on wikipedia and youtube.

47. John Belushi thumpin' on the globe.
Actually, it gave me goosebumps and made me wanna cry. He was playing a newscaster talking about this piece of satellite junk that was going to fall back to earth and we didn't have a clue where it was gonna land. . . and he amps it up and gets madder and madder about it and I could feel he wasn't acting anymore . . . .

I don't know if it was my favorite but it stuck in my brain and I used to try to watch that show and then sleep through the whole thing anyway.
