Maybe it’s that—apart from the cold open and Update—the show mostly ditched politics, a move that, considering SNL’s wobbly track record in that area of late, freed everyone up to just be funny performers. That Punkie Johnson’s Black woman has infiltrated the murderous gang for her own benefit by playing on its own, hypocritical systemic blind spots is a clever twist, especially as she just appears in a vacated seat midway through the sketch. Boston-area Massachusetts is a tough place to navigate. While no episode towered over them all (with one exception—Kate, it’s coming), I caught myself smiling through most of the episode tonight. If there’s a beneficent Masshole, Bill Burr is, begrudgingly and rewardingly, it. Yeah, no. (Pete’s Long Island vs. Burr’s Boston.) Apart from the showboating turns in the obligatory cold open (more later), the best sketches tonight were more about characterization than premise. Because that would be tasteless. (And here comes the autobiographical element once more—ride it straight to hell, Perkins.) Contributor, The A.V. Right...”) Having tagged Jason Momoa among other “peers,” Bennett’s near-nobody shows he’s learned about as much as you’d expect when the real Momoa video-calls to tell him to cut the shit. With just the right combination of subject selectivity and “fuck it” attack posture, Jost and Che delivered a much better Update this week. Even though SNL’s pared-down pandemic audience (no jokes about the pay-for-laughs revelation last week) made reading reaction harder than usual, Burr wound up wrapping his set with a “Well, that’s my time” of the type usually reserved for a comic who just bombed. Trumpdates: We Will Never Live Down 'Basket Full of Deplorables' | (Some online have praised this as McKinnon breaking character but, bless your hearts.) I love having Maya back in the house, I truly do. Bill Burr Monologue — Bill Burr really straddles that fine line between funny and f**k you, doesn’t he? !” coupled with a side order of shut-in shutdown cabin fever makes for a feast for Burr and McKinnon. I would have flipped the mafia sketch and the beer commercial, but I’m not Lorne. The mask jokes? Plodding and obvious, for 12 minutes. After all, does the kid think he’s better than his old man? It’s not as good, but aside from “Update,” it’s the best skit of the night. Burr plays the ugly “I’m just saying what everybody’s thinking” white male cis comic card, but flips it over (and over again) to usually reveal a better joke than you’re expecting. Are you? During the latest episode, the actor, who stars in "The King of Staten Island," gave a stand-up segment that addressed topics including cancel culture, anti-maskers, marginalized groups, and … Okay, somebody tell me that Melissa Villaseñor is okay. As was the vibe in most of the material all night, there wasn’t the feeling that SNL was lowering its standards as much as leaning into what they know they can do well. Maya was fine as usual, although, like the fly, Kamala Harris’ slideshow of already meme-happy facial expressions to Pence’s interruptions and obfuscations represented the easiest-to-pick fruit from the debate. "SNL' Host Bill Burr Took Aim at White Women, Cancel Culture, and Gay Pride in a Controversial Monologue The eyebrow-raising set garnered lots of reactions across social media. Not all of the skit is successful, mind you. Saturday Night Live guest host Bill Burr has attracted criticism for opening the show with a tired monologue about Pride Month.. It’s a Masshole thing—there’s something ingrained in that accent and attitude that prepares the hearer for inexplicably hostile confrontation. Of course, he’s not saying that it’s great that some yahoo took a poke at the recently reemerged Moranis—he’s just laying it out there that his Masshole-adjacent native New Yorkers are getting back to their old, sucker-punching ways, pandemic or no. (Score: 5 out 10), Weekend Update — How do you make Colin Jost and Michael Che funny? Comedy flash-bangs hurled into the clearly wary audience included wishing death on the families of those still not wearing a COVID mask, cheering on the recent New York sucker-punching of beloved, long-absent Rick Moranis, and a run about “cancel culture” that began with Burr announcing, “I don’t want to speak ill of my bitches” when talking about white women. On the heels of a lackluster season premiere, comedian Bill Burr is hosting “Saturday Night Live” this week. Burr’s persona is all over this sketch, with his don espousing a retrograde sensibility that’s as objectionable as it’s rightly confused about the moral gymnastics his associates are engaged in as they attempt to conform to the new normal. A recap of Saturday Night Live’s October 10, 2020 episode, featuring Bill Burr and musical guest Jack White, replacing Morgan Wallen. Viewers may know Burr for playing Patrick Kuby in Breaking Bad, although he has also fronted comedy podcast The Monday Morning Podcast since 2007. The Blitz saw Burr’s persona getting a fine workout once more, as his professionally boisterous sports commentator’s traditional mockery of Black colleague Kenan’s failed football pick explodes in the face of Kenan and co-host Ego Nwodim’s public sorrow over a racially-motivated police shooting. To Trump’s steroid-fueled brag about him catching the disease he’s done exactly nothing to prevent (calling it “a blessing from God”) Che quoted God as saying, “Hey, we tried guys.” And speaking of Trump’s gasoline-on-the-fire “leadership” on COVID, Che got his biggest groans (and my highest scores) for claiming that, while he’s not glad Trump died from the disease that’s killed over 210 thousand Americans on his watch, seeing Trump up and about is like “a car crash where the only survivor is the drunk driver.” One more. I don’t think I’m going to count tonight’s late-sketch appearance as a full Biden outing for overall evaluation’s sake, what since Carrey spent a third of his time as the fly on Mike Pence’s head, and another third as Jeff Goldblum. What can I say—Kenan makes a funny fly.) When fellow professional Bay Stater Casey Affleck hosted, it was only right that he appeared in a Dunkin’ Donuts ad whose premise was that the regular denizens of that ubiquitous (Canton-based) coffee chain greeted commuters utilizing Dunkin’s new order-ahead app by hostilely demanding, “You think you’re better than me? Carrey spent more time on his good-but-not-great Goldblum than he did on the Democratic candidate tonight, and it’s probably just as well. Comedian Bill Burr caused a bit of a commotion after delivering his “Saturday Night Live” monologue on Saturday, Oct. 10. But, in each case, Burr’s swerve comes in turning that “You think you’re better than me? Host Bill Burr does stand-up about the COVID-19 pandemic, cancel culture and the "woke" white women. As it turns out, that’s just what SNL needed. The character of the told-you-so COVID expert “Dr. One example of glancing off of current events without diving in over your head was the TikTok filmed piece, with Beck Bennett’s marginal actor (he’s on something called The Buddies on Nintendo TV) going for some of that viral “Imagine” internet heat. Jost, lost in the face of the good doctor’s machinations, finally asks, “Kate, are you okay?,” to which she, responding as herself, laughs, “I’m obviously not.” That it’s a pre-planned on-air mini-freakout doesn’t make it any less of a liberatingly funny on-air freakout, and McKinnon connects with the audience so endearingly as to bring tears (of laughter and otherwise) to the eye. Send up a flare. And it worked, none better than in the opening cookout scene, with Burr and Kate McKinnon (much more later) finding an angle on pandemic lockdown madness that hit over and over. “So, the idea is this: A white guy is giving a Black guy shit because he lost a bet, and the Black guy is upset because cops keeping murdering Black people, but the white guy pretends to feel bad, but he’s mostly just excited that the Bears won and he’s gonna rub his Black colleague’s face in it! The addition of Jim Carrey’s Joe Biden is completely unnecessary and idiotic. Burr put on a hairpiece for a sketch about police brutality and poorly-timed pranks. By Dustin Rowles | TV | October 11, 2020 |. (I was—and remain—one of “the people we all cheated off in high school,” as Burr describes COVID experts and other eggheads in his monologue.) He took part in several skits throughout the evening, including one that addressed a hot topic. It is Saturday Night Live tradition that a few days before the show airs, the guest host and musical guest join one of the SNL cast members to film a slew of simple promos. But it’s when her gabbling, softly accented doctor started manhandling Jost under the pretense of giving the co-anchor a blood pressure test with her squeak-toy sphygmomanometer that the real joke burst out from inside the dopey setup. (A live sketch is always a better ten-to-one conceptual showcase.) This is parody! A fly landed on Mike Pence’s head during the debate. (Daru Jones, with his forward-leaning stand-up drum kit, is a spectacular, on-point sideman.) The Blitz — Bill Burr plays an NFL analyst on an NFL show who is taunting his co-anchor, only to realize that his co-anchor is not interested in talking about the football because another Black man has been killed by a police officer. Beck Bennett’s Mike Pence is an interesting enough creation (thankfully the tired “noted homophobe Pence is in the closet” gag took the night off), his soporifically sonorous Vice President showing off a little more active, Trump-ian evil in his biggest spotlight to date. [VIDEO] 'Saturday Night Live' recap: Bill Burr hosts Season 46, Episode 2; Jack White performs — 'SNL' monologue, best and worst sketches. Comedian Bill Burr hosted SNL on Saturday night, marking his first time on the long-running sketch series. Comedian Bill Burr pissed off a lot of people with his “Saturday Night Live” monologue Saturday night. Dr. Fauci Is Pissed That the Trump Campaign Featured Him in an Ad Without His Approval I guess this is what they wanted Carrey for? https://nypost.com/2020/10/11/bill-burrs-snl-monologue-causes-twitter-firestorm It’s not that Bill Burr is too big for Saturday Night Live—it’s more that the comic ground he’s staked out for himself feels like it’s off the Saturday Night Live map. If you elect Joe Biden, satire will live again! (“Unpresidented” for “unprecedented,” “the noon normal” for “the new normal.”) Steeled for that to be the one and only joke, the laughs came, instead, from Burr and McKinnon’s layered, escalating, crazy-eyed fury at being corrected, their day-drinking quarantine brains emerging as so buffeted and bruised by their nine-months of packed-together isolation (and 20 COVID scares) that their neighbors’ innocuous corrections cause repeated eruptions of faux-sincere, glass-throwing repentance. His Irish, working class gruffness makes his turn as the patriarch of F Is For Family’s working class clan the quintessential Burr role—a Masshole (although the Burr-co-created animated show takes place in Pennsylvania) whose vulgar disregard for decorum and other people’s feelings comes yoked to an unexpectedly deep well of self-loathing and bad influences. Because The Fly. Again—smaller than usual audience, but I think any time the Update crowd goes still (instead of staying still), it’s at least going to be interesting. Contrast them with Bill Burr! His Canton and my hometown of Saugus were within high school rival egg-chucking distance (if you had a car), but, while we never had the pleasure, I still have a sense that he would have at least made fun of me. The joke, once again, is on privileged white folks (in this case, celebrity variety) trying—and failing, to often eye-rolling degree—to insert themselves into a struggle they’re far too removed from to truly understand. The whole monologue has some very, “I have a Black friend, so I can sh*t on women and gay people” energy. For better or worse, it’s a very Bill Burr sketch (mostly for worse). Sure, he has the Pete Davidson connection, but, as his monologue showed in its typically uncompromising willingness to piss people off, Bill Burr on Saturday Night Live is a constitutional mismatch. But apart from all that, it’s the character turns that are so watchable here. Host Bill Burr does stand-up about the COVID-19 pandemic, cancel culture and white women.Saturday Night Live. Riding on their transgressive momentum, Jost and Che just kept nailing jokes, which is a rhythm that, when they find it, is as confident and funny as any team of Update anchors ever. I mean, how did this pitch go? (“Don’t trust this white devil ’bout that ’rona!,” made me laugh. I mean, look: If you like Bill Burr, this is exactly why. !” contempt on a slightly different target that you anticipated. Again, “You think you’re better than me? The company’s latest actual advertising campaign attempts to paint this pricey, suitably complex beer’s charms as the go-to choice of your workaday Masshole, but Burr’s working class connoisseur does an immediate, to-camera spit take at this bandwagon-jumping seasonal varietal (a real product, so watch your labels this Halloween), coughing out the eventual concession that it’s something you might catch a buzz off of if you’re desperate and somebody left it at your house. So, Bill Burr is hosting the show, and apparently, he also wrote a lot of it, too. Here, the premise is micro-targeted at this one guy, nodding as he repeats his roommate’s reasonable objections. Bill Burr took the reins of “Saturday Night LIve,” kicking off the night with a very topical and edgy monologue that carried through the rest of the evening.. )—Bennett’s take is much more targeted, and inhabited. types” and more about how (mostly white) people latch onto something they think absolves them while still engaging in the systemic behaviors actual activists are protesting. Her name/catchphrase bit was going over about as well as could be expected—there were generous laughs, because it’s Kate. Pete Davidson looks good. If there’s one way to sum up the last episode of Saturday Night Live, it might be to quote the immortal words of the Limp Bizkit song “Break Stuff.” In not one, but two sketches, guest-host Bill Burr was breaking glasses. Comedian Bill Burr caused quite the reaction with his opening Saturday Night Live monologue after addressing a variety of topics including cancel culture, white women and … With nobody leaving the show after last year and Lorne packing in the new faces, there just isn’t enough room on this lifeboat. SNL is bad at these. Funny, right? Wearing a grey face covering, the 52-year-old comedian hosted the second episode of … You may email him here, follow him on Twitter, or listen to his weekly TV podcast, Podjiba. Comedian Bill Burr raised eyebrows with his "Saturday Night Live" monologue. I fled Massachusetts to go to college out of state and never went back, while Burr headed to Emerson without, like I did, ever suppressing his bluff, confrontational, very imitable accent the world has come to dub, “the Masshole.” (I guiltily retrained my “r”s once I left, although that old bullying Masshole voice still tags in when I’m really angry.) This is exactly why. Club. It’s not enough to save it. Che and Jost going for broke here, telling jokes like this is their last season. (Think of her as the mafia’s Candace Owens.) Che, looking at the bright side, explains, “Either Trump’s telling the truth and we finally have a cure for COVID, or Trump is lying and he’s still gonna die.” Pausing to bask in some nervous titters and his own chuckles, Che concluded, beaming, “I’m not gonna say that’s a win-win, but it’s definitely not a lose-lose.”. Oh lord. Davidson, incredulous, on Rowling: “She creates a seven-book fantasy series about all types of mythical creatures living in harmony with wizards and elves. But her broadcaster-smooth extended aside about Trump’s health (“Oh, I wasn’t asking out of sympathy, Mike, I was asking with a simmering rage for his incompetence and a sadistic hope that he is not well”) comes from her and nothing in the debate itself. All of his skits are about aggrieved white guys complaining about cancel/woke culture/gays/minorities, and there’s just enough self-deprecation in them that Burr can maintain plausible deniability when he’s called out on them. (Or noon normal.) Bill Burr received mixed reviews on social media for his controversial opening monologue during the most recent episode of “Saturday Night Live.” … Nope. “The one thing that we do know is,” she begins forcefully before holding for an exquisitely prolonged pause, “that—no we don’t know dis.” All-star stuff, born of all-star performer confidence. Or about how Black people are always complaining about cops killing them. Meanwhile Che heard the uneasy responses and just plowed ahead, into the Twitter-banned territory of wishing the president dead. But I am here for a performance-driven piece about social awkwardness in the workplace stemming from same, and Burr does fine work backpedalling sweatily as his trash-talk deflates into a desperate series of lies concerning his awareness of the killing that his Black colleagues have been so affected by. Danny Peary's Cult Movies books are mostly to blame. Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed. (Not to cast aspersions, but tossing some middle-aged white jocks into the deep end of having to fill four hours talking about Black Lives Matter protests reveals some personal and institutional blind spots.) The Moranis joke? Jost and Che did this well. Dustin is the founder and co-owner of Pajiba. Buy a Pajiba T-Shirt at the Pajiba Store, Trumpdates: We Will Never Live Down 'Basket Full of Deplorables', Dr. Fauci Is Pissed That the Trump Campaign Featured Him in an Ad Without His Approval. And here’s to giving Alec Baldwin as much time off as he clearly wants until his comic nemesis hopefully evaporates like a bad fucking dream. Comedian Bill Burr's SNL monologue addressed everything from coronavirus and being 'woke' to gay pride and cancel culture, noting he'd probably be 'canceled' after his opening jokes. It’s really about the strange times we’re living in! McKinnon is money as ever as the second ineffectual moderator of this ongoing shitshow, Susan Page. Are people working from home? Kenan Thompson does stellar underplaying as ever as the host who sees just what a hornets’ nest everyone has just stepped into, but it’s Burr and McKinnon’s all-too-relatable, Frankenstein’s monster social ineptitude that makes the sketch run. (Score: 6.5 out of 10), ← (To be fair to Page, nobody short of character actress Margo Martindale in [pick a role] could be expected to get this bad-faith political theater into shape.) Privacy Policy / Advertise If anyone’s listened to any sports talk radio in the months when COVID had essentially shut down all sports, then Burr’s inept attempts to come to grips with something other than the daily scores will sound awfully familiar. Mat, who probably has 5 or 6 year-old pumpkin-flavored beers sitting in his fridge that he’ll unload at someone else’s house at the first opportunity after the pandemic, will also like this one. White, with his stripped-down three-piece band and signature lyrical and guitar virtuosity, was, no pun ever intended, electric. Pete Davidson, meanwhile, tackles J.K. Rowling’s transphobia, and it’s pretty great, too. To lend some manic weirdness to what’s turning out to be a blandly unfinished political impression? Raw, live, and visceral just feels really right right now, you know? Yeah, there are plenty of topics in this utterly preposterous election cycle that SNL could be digging into–but, honestly, do we really want that from this show as presently constituted? That this is the first skit of the night does not bode well for the rest of the show. The comic, who hosted the sketch comedy show for the first time, gave a … Those sound like setups for truly shitty jokes, and, depending on your tolerance for sneering Bostonian disdain, they might stay that way for you. This weekend, comedian Bill Burr will host Saturday Night Live. SNL: Why Bill Burr’s Shocking “White Women” Joke Worked Burr presided over a great episode of Saturday Night Live , featuring Maya Rudolph’s martini … Here's why. Bill Burr is known for pushing the envelope in his stand-up act, leaving no topic untouched onstage. I don’t know what dummy who blew his big TV break for mask-free Bud Light Lime Morgan Wallen was going to bring to the table, but all-freaking-hail Jack White for blowing doors tonight. Cold Open — The nice thing about a Vice Presidential debate that does not involve Donald Trump is that it’s actually not parody-proof, and Maya Rudolph and Beck Bennett do a terrific job of parodying Kamala and Mike Pence. I grew up in Massachusetts at around the same time as Bill Burr. It didn’t look that way, to be honest. They just can’t help themselves, can they? Bill Burr's "SNL" opening monologue received mixed reactions, but the comedian's fans were already prepared for his blunt comedic style. It has a Jason Momoa cameo. And, the best part about it, is that Bill Burr breaking stuff on SNL was cathartic as hell.. “I’m making fun of toxic masculinity!” Are you, Bill? Kate McKinnnon as Dr. WeKnowDis offering a second opinion on Trump, on the other hand, is terrible right up until Kate McKinnon completely loses it, strategically breaks character, and turns the whole segment on its head. His acting in live sketches was more confident than it’s been, and, since he joked about Mental Illness Awareness Week (“We out here and we crazy—go Giants!”), I’ll just say it’s nice to see. Comedian Bill Burr struck a nerve with a stunned cross-section of “Saturday Night Live” viewers from white “bitches” he claimed hijacked the woke moment to gay individuals to cancel culture to people risking their families’ lives because they’re too dumb to wear a face mask. For the second week in this new, admittedly screwed-up season, no Melissa—not even in the goodnights that I saw. That he and adult son Mikey Day ultimately get into a fistfight over cereal choices and some clearly unresolved issues just cements the Massachusetts spirit of it all. Bennett does a lot of things well, but it’s in his undersold immediate recognition of his friends’ unheard-by-us disapproval of his spotlight-grabbing, shirtless anti-Trump rap that’s so funny and, well, so human. #SNL “ “I … (Score: 7 out of 10 for the VP debate; 1 out of 10 for the pointless, unfunny Jim Carrey as Jeff Goldblum as The Fly asides). And while it’d be easy to mock celebrities in politics as a concept (my local senate race sees Republican Susan Collins demonizing opponent Sarah Gideon for having support from Hollywood types like—gasp—Zach Braff! Great. The worst: I really don’t have a clunker to pick out this week, but the low-key Mafia sketch perhaps could have used an ending, so I’ll go with that. Bill Burr didn't hold back in his controversial opening "Saturday Night Live" monologue.. Hearing Burr spit out the term “woke culture” prepares you for some hacky bigotry, but instead pivots to a run of unlikely allyship—that turns its comic derision instead on privileged white women inserting themselves into the cause of racial justice. Damnit. (Photo: NBC/Twitter) Jeff Goldblum may not have been available, but Saturday Night Live still found a … No thanks. !” Burr’s comic style hews closely to that hair-trigger, defensive offensiveness, only for Burr to veer into a more—dare I say?—liberal lane, without ever losing the tone that suggests he’s prepared to punch you in the mouth if you agree with him the wrong way. F*ck off, Burr. Burr is such a strong personality (both in his stand-up and his popular, homemade podcast) that it’s a little odd to hear him in tonight’s monologue explaining that hosting Saturday Night Live is “a lifelong dream.” Like everything else Burr shows up in, tonight’s show tingled with an undercurrent of comic tension, in this case from the incongruity that Burr was hosting SNL at all. Here, Burr, having forgotten the name of the (this time) fictional Black man killed by white cops, tries to save his bacon by exclaiming in a moment of inspiration, “There are so many guys to name—that’s the problem!” Sadly, his elaborate setup to humiliate Kenan over picking the Buccaneers includes on-set delivery of their wagered steak dinner and an inappropriate camera filter dutifully played by the boys in the booth over Kenan’s sincere plea for justice. On one hand, the gig seems like the sort of thing Burr would make fun of. Jost got his gasps, appropriately enough, by describing the learned-absolutely-nothing spectacle of a COVID-stricken Trump speaking to a live, equally unmasked White House crowd being like watching someone smoking through a hole in their neck. By Abigail Covington Decent. For better or worse, it’s a very Bill Burr sketch (mostly for worse). It’s not really about race, see?

Che, doing back-to-back animal stories after the political stretch, nailed’ em both with the flair of a guy who knows he’s killing.

(Score: Ummm, yeah, no, not for me out of 10), Social Distance Get Together — I thought the skit was going one place, and it went a completely different, not-all-together great place, where a married couple blows a gasket every time they are corrected for using the wrong word (e.g., “unpresidented” instead of “unprecedented.”) I thought they were gonna zig, and instead they crashed and burned. But it was Kate’s Update. Burr’s is a boldly unlikeable act, one that teases those prepared to burst out in whooping agreement-laughs before clanging both those he’s suckered in and some nearby unsuspecting targets over the head. (Hey, the country is potentially crumbling under the sag of white supremacist, anti-democratic thuggery and unimaginable stupidity regarding an unprecedented health disaster, but if SNL sucks at tackling politics head-on—and it has for most of the Trump era—then just go for the laughs.). Everyone’s into their characters as completely as their characters are into their own assumed self-righteousness, with Kyle Mooney correcting the don’s pronouns about a newly-out LGBTQI thug (“Hey, they’re a friggin’ murderer”), and Beck Bennett’s Nicky (formerly Nicky The Nose) choking up while explaining that nicknames based on physical appearance are just hurtful.
