Happy 40th SNL! Here Are Some of Rob’s Favorite Skits From His Days of SNL [VIDEOS]
Back in the early 90's, I would watch Saturday Night Live with my mom every week. It was my absolute favorite time period for SNL. Chris Farley, Adam Sandler, Dana Carvey, Jan Hooks, Mike Meyers, Phil Hartman etc...it didn't get much better than that (for me anyway).
Here are some of my favs from that time period:
This was a hilarious "We Are the World" parody that I watched over and over again after it's original airing in 1991. All of the cast members are portraying musicians in this hilarious We Are the World parody "Musicians for Free Range Chickens."
Does anyone remember Massive Headwound Harry? This wasn't one of the more popular skits. In fact, (as far I know) there was only one. It starred Dana Carvey. I'll let the video do the rest.
This one became quite famous and is still loved today. I remember being in tears when I watched this on it's original air date back in 1990. Please enjoy the Chippendale's Audition starring a couple of huge talents (Patrick Swayze and Chris Farley) that are no longer with us.
This one centers around a couple played by host Kirstie Alley and cast member Kevin Nealon. They (or I should say, he) is harrassed by overly.......I'll use the word enthusiastic, for lack of a better, staff.
Hard to pick just one so I just went for one I remember being really funny. Dana Carvey and Mike Meyers as the Wayne and Garth duo were phenomenal. Anyone else blown away at how they looked exactly the same on the 40th anniversary special?
It's Pat was a great ongoing skit. The character was played by Julia Sweeney. If you've ever been in a situation where you can't tell what sex a certain person is, you will relate. Please enjoy socially awkward, nasely, short, overweight Pat!
The Chris Farley Show was one of my favs. Here you see the funnyman become the worst, most awkward interviewer you've ever witness. In the process, hilarity ensues.
