Damon / Bruce Springsteen
October 5, 2002
With last night's show, I felt
it was pretty good overall. However, the
writing seemed a bit off in some areas.
There were good concepts and
ideas, but it didn't seem like those ideas were
presented in the best way possible.
The Matt Damon monologue, Versace
pockets, Brian Fellows, Dr. Matt Damon,
Dr. Phil...they were all good ideas but the finished product
was not 100%.
It's as if they didn't read any of the sketches out loud before
them. The line to line transitions and timing all seemed a little
Nothing seemed to run super smoothly. Maybe they needed to rehearse
Favorite moments of the night:
Hannibal Lector in college
Anal suppository commerical
Fred Armisen's character
Dick Cheney Missile
Matt Damon cured cancer
Stuff that was still good, but
Justin-Britney dance off
Anna Nicole Smith
Coming to Iraq
Same old schtick:
Stuff that needed work:
Update (minus Fred Armisen, who was fabulous) - all the jokes
weak for Tina and Jimmy. I liked the black bear thing though.
Versace - I just didn't laugh out loud.
This year's premiere was 1000x
better than last year's.
