    SNL should really be ashamed: they not only made Christof Waltz unfunny, but uninteresting and unwatchable as well. I couldn't make it past the lame game show bit.

    here's the discussion from when they used a chip character 2 weeks in a row. Jimmy's been retweeting everyone that noticed, so he should be fired up for tues.

    they also may have ripped off when O&A were talking about how shitty it would have been to be the cruise comic on the ship when have had zero material left to entertain people with.

    Colin Quinn and Bob Kelly were talking on his podcast about SNL stealing a bit from O&A where they were trying to find Bobby a character and catchphrase. Not too original, but the skit happened the same week they did this and one of the characters was almost identical to the one they figured out for Bobby.

    Colin basically said the writers are always worried about losing their jobs and will steal just so they have something to bring to the writers room. It's more the fact they would steal from a guy in NYC that pretty much knows everyone in the comedy scene out there. Pretty disrespectful.

    SNL writers have been thief hacks for years. Almost everything is stolen. They used to specifically hire writers from Canada and the UK because those writers would memorize the acts of foreign comics and then rewrite the jokes for American audiences. That doesn't work anymore because most big standups have DVDs and HBO specials where all of their material is popular that stealing it gets you caught (Dennis Leary, Dane Cook, Dice Clay, Carlos Mencia, etc.).

    That hack Norm MacDonald made his entire career thieving jokes from Canadian comics and taking credit for them when he was on SNL. Eddie Murphy even stole Charles Barnett's job from SNL including co-opting his schtick. They'll just take everything. Being an SNL writer is the easiest job in the world if you can find out how to use Reddit or Disqus.

    SNL now is taking other comedians' material. Listening to Stern and O&A and stealing. Listening to podcasts and stealing. And browsing webforums and YouTube comments and stealing. Just like how Sal and Richard browse here and SFN for jokes. Carlos Mencia's entire show on Comedy Central was non-stop joke thieving. He took from Kinison, Carlin, and was stealing from South Park to the point where they made an entire episode about him being a joke thief.

    Speaking of South Park. The South Park guys hired some writers a few season ago and those writers did nothing but steal. That show now is non-stop theft of others' work. There was an episode based on Inception that was nothing but 25 minutes of stolen jokes and a stolen premise. The South Park guys said that they stole the jokes and took the heat for it but really they had outsourced that episode to their writing staff who do nothing but steal.

    So yes. SNL is terrible. But everyone steals and most writers are hacks. Kimmel and Leno listen to Stern every day and just take what they want. Leno paid Stuttering John $1.5 million dollars to get some of that Stern magic going. Even the South Park guys have resorted to stealing and ripping off jokes now. George Carlin, Bill Hicks, Patrice O'Neal, and pretty much all other original comedians are dead. We're left with Carlos Mencia, SNL, and the rest of the hacks.

    How was that a ripoff? Does Chip act like that? I listen and didn't remind me of Chip at all.

    not only did they take the behavior and general idea of the Chip character, but they took the catch phrase...AGAIN. this was obvious.

    He's saving it for the show. I hope he blows up again.

    Can someone please give me a quick overview of Norton's character "Chip" & the catchphrase?
    I don't listen to O&A, but am curious to learn what SNL has stolen. Thanks.

    When will SNL just come up with a character named Chip Chipperson, make a horrible movie about it, and ruin the character forever?
