    It wasn't too bad...he should have rehearsed the first part more. The Annie stuff was funny.

    I see they've taken the video down--to be expected with SNL, I guess.

    My response as well. I'd never heard of this guy before this morning. People on other boards seem to think he's great, however. He's popular on YouTube too. I was wondering if I wasn't getting it due to my age or the fact that I'm used to comedians who play one character--the everyday guy who notices weird things around him, the pissed-off boyfriend, etc. He goes from being a doofus who's trying to come out of his shell, to a grandma killer, to a bad impersonator in the first few minutes. It feels amateurish--like a guy in high school who'll say any random thing to get attention. Is this where comedy is headed?

    Yes. Unnecessary. Especially showing them twice.

    Amateurish is the perfect word to describe the opening monologue. :) I haven't seen this guy's work before, and judging from his appearance on the show, I will not be seeking him out either. lol

    I find it inconceivable that anyone doesn't find Zach Galifinakis funny. That was the funniest SNL monologue in at least 9 years.

    And seriously, did none of you see The Hangover?

    Oh, I do find him kind of funny. In a collegiately clever flatulent kind of way.

    Missed the opening, came in right when they did their spoof on "The Talk"

    That sucked, kind of the like the real show on CBS. At least The View spoofs are very good.

    Some weak sketches, but overall as good a half show as there's been since 2004-ish

    I feel ripped off.. time differences mean we get SNL a week late.
    I can never see these clips you guys post.

    it's a frickin' tragedy...poor mojo... poor poor mojo.


    ps.... I loved the hangover and Zach Galifianakis. What's not to love?
