Submitted by: fancylad 5 years ago in Entertainment

I"m no comedian and I know I"d tank if I had to audition for Lorne Michaels, but THIS got Fallon the SNL gig? Weaksauce!

Agreed. Back in 1998 this crap was hilarious. BUT I still think this audition is sucky/boring/lame..but is it any mystery to ANYONE why he got hired? He may be a goofball, but Lorne saw that he was a semi ATTRACTIVE goofball. His "look" at the time was perfect. He invented the whole "I just woke up" hair-do. he was slim, young, good hair, not bad to look at...he was hired for his looks. the fact that he could do some decent impressions was an afterthought.

My god, I couldn`t finish this. Also, he kinda looks like Ted from HIMYM, here.

I never thought Fallon was funny on SNL, but I actually really like him on Late Night. Weird how that works. Having the Roots on your show every night doesn`t hurt either.

I was impressed until the Cosby impersonation >.> SNL died when Mike Myers and Dana Carvey left.

I never found Fallon funny at all. Not to mention his tendency to look directly into the camera, or being unable to control his own laughter during the show. Just watch him on that cowbell sketch. Useless waste of skin he is.

weak. course I have never liked him. his comedy falls very short of anything actually funny...kinda like IAB lately.

Also Ted, those people you mentioned are all out getting drated up on Saturday Nights.

SNL is for 20/30-something professionals, who don`t stay out late.

"The vast majority of people who watch SNL are the same type of people that watch Jersey Shore. Or Jerry springer."

This is the dumbest poo I have ever seen.

"weak sauce"?!?!? whoever wrote that description needs to be banned. SNL is skit comedy and impersonations, not a stand up show. He gave them a couple dozen impersonations that were pretty spot on. It`s no wonder why he got the gig.

Not really. The vast majority of people who watch SNL are the same type of people that watch Jersey Shore. Or Jerry springer.

This was hilarious, as is SNL.

What`s with all the SNL hate? It gets better ratings than any late night show, and better ratings than they have ever gotten. They gotta be doing something right.

SNL was never good post early 1990`s. It`s not surprising "comedy" like this got through.
