Will Ferrell is slated to host Saturday Night Live on 1/27/18. To celebrate his long-awaited return to the series that made him a star, SNL has released this gem – the actual audition tape that landed him the gig back in 1995, and includes his hilarious Harry Caray impression.
To celebrate his millionth YouTube subscriber, Andrew Rea of Binging with Babish decided to give a tour of his kitchen, then replicated an SNL fan favorite, the 15-layer Taco Town taco we were first introduced to back in 2005. The cook starts at 5:21. Guacamolito sauce ftw!
While we don’t normally think of Saturday Night Live for its visual effects, the show actually requires quite a few of them these days. Take a look at some of the work their VFX artists must deliver under the gun each week, often with less than 12 hours before airtime.
“The people act like they’ve never seen a restaurant… or eaten food before.” SNL pokes fun at the over-the-top expressions seen on the faces of happy customers in commercials for family restaurant chains, as a group of actors are given direction for their reaction shots.
Saturday Night Live put together a reel of some of its silliest and most memorable spooky sketches, from Laraine Newman and Richard Pryor’s classic Exorcist bit, to Bill Hader’s hilarious Vincent Price. We’re betting David S. Pumpkins will make the list next year.
A group of prep school students is upset that their school has fired their beloved teacher, Mr. Bunting (Fred Armisen), so they’re going to stand up for what they believe in. We won’t give away the punchline, but the payoff is well worth the lengthy setup. Well played, SNL.
