    But we're having Doug Stanhope on for the second time in 2 years.

    Isn't Howard supposed to be the documentarian of A-list celebrities now? He hasn't had a guest who wasn't a D-list comic or wack packer in weeks

    Huh? Then why does Howard have every bit player from SNL in if he doesn't have comedians in?
    I love hearing how Howard knows Lorne never laughs during auditions for the hundredth time when an SNL cast member shows up.

    They're "comedic actors" not comedians.


    Old school SNL (when it was funny) recruited professional comics like Adam Sandler and David Spade. New school garbage SNL has on people like Andy Samberg and Amy Poehler who wouldn't last 30 seconds at a standup gig

    Either way... . Howard's an asshole when it comes to Gilbert.
    The guy is radio gold, especially during the news.

    They don't have FUNNY comedians on the show anymore. Why risk Gilbert actually saying something mildly un-PC, when they can have vanilla, pseudo-comedians?

    It's whoever Marci likes.


    Marci is a big Chelsea Lately fan plus Beth wants to be part of Chelsea's social circle so Chelsea Handler and Whitney Cummings are on the show 10x per year.

    Marci thinks Jim Gaffigan, Mr Vanilla himself, is funny so he gets to come on

    "Comedic actors," like "cheese product" or "orange drink."

    I'm surprised he hasn't found a Gilbert impersonator yet. People just won't work for plugs like they used to. o_O

    Doug is a great comic. But that's not why he's on the show. He's promoting a book, but the real reason is so Howard can ply him for Johnny Depp / Amber Heard dirt.

    It's so helpful of Howard to let Doug on the show a full month after his book was released...

    Stanhope.............For reelz? Oh Lord, Mary and Baby Jesus hear my prayer...........Please, Please, PLEASE, Let this go completely sideways for Gunky.......Let one of the last American Hero's of free and truthful speech blow the fraud of all media out of the water with disgust and disdain over what he's become................And Bingo blows a fart in his face as the exit....

    No.

    SNL went through phases of first getting improv people through Second City and the Groundlings, but didn't start going after stand-ups specifically until the late 80s, early 90s. Even then it was about 50/50. After that, it was back to improv people again.

    Hence the 80's and early 90's being the peak of SNL.



    Dennis Miller, Eddie Murphy, Chris Farley, Adam Sandler, Dana Carvey, David Spade -- that was the peak of SNL this alternative humor comedic actor bs is for the birds

    He is only on due to his relevance with Johnny depp and amber heard. Just like Amber...he uses Johnny for his advantage

    That's your opinion.

    Sketch comedy all through SNL's run from start to present has been hit and miss, and just as much during those years if not more. It's the nature of the beast. Although the past 6 years of SNL have been completely shit.
