Oh yeah, I remember watching that sketch! Early 80s SNL seemed to have these sketches that have been overlooked due to it coming out of that Dick Ebersol era and not having Eddie Murphy in them. It’s from the Season 9 finale episode (was the best sketch of that episode) and I had no idea that it’s up on yahoo screen though. I agree, for it’s time it was very weird and different from what you normally saw and it coming from someone like Gary Kroeger, a very underrated cast member, it probably gets overlooked for other stuff in that era. He was also in this other sketch I liked where he had came out to his dad that he was straight, it was a nice way to look at how ridiculous homophobia is, I forgot what episode that’s from though.
You know, that thought actually crossed my mind when I saw her in the season premiere. But with her now joining the cast, I think that would mean we’ll be seeing more of her at the desk, so I guess we’ll see what will happen

Everybody go follow Leslie on Twitter now!!
Saturday Night Live loves to promote within, and the late-night sketch show has done it again, pinning featured player stripes on a member of the writing staff. Starting with this week’s show hosted by Jim Carrey, Leslie Jones will be joining the cast of SNL, where she has been a writer since early 2014. Actress-comedian Jones took part in the talent search for a new SNL cast member last fall. She was one of the 12 finalists invited to audition on the SNL stage and was in serious contention for the spot that ultimately went to Sasheer Zamata. But Lorne Michaels and his team liked Jones too and brought her in as a writer. She quickly established herself not only off- but also on-screen with appearances on Weekend Update. Her bit on slavery in May made a lot of noise, and she also was featured in the SNL season premiere last month. (Watch the video below) Like Jones, new Weekend Update co-anchor Michael Che also started as a writer on SNL, a long-standing tradition on the show. Jones joins Pete Davidson as the second new featured player on SNL this fall.
I just now found out that the pickpocket guy on Brooklyn Nine-Nine last night really is a master pickpocket in real life!
Aw man, just about every late night talk show is in reruns this week. Well, at least Conan and Craig Ferguson will still be new
THIS WAS SUCH A GREAT JOKE
The SNL episode I’m watching:
Season 9, Episode 9: Father Guido Sarducci / Huey Lewis & The News
