Al Gore / Phish
December 14, 2002

By  Jamie Klein

PRE-SHOW THOUGHTS-I cant imagine Gore being funny so we'll see. Phish is supposed to be like the Grateful Dead so they should be good.

If you want to be in the mailbag please email me at Subject line: Mailbag.

GORE COLD OPEN-This was funny especially when Tracy zapped Gore the first time & Gore went back to kissing Tipper again. What kind of name is Tipper? A

RUNNING MATES MONOLOGUE-This was a spoof of The Bachelor so I thought it was funny. I'm surprised Darrell wasn't in it. Gore should leave his shirt on. Im disappointed he's not running for President. He would make a good one. A

HARDBALL-This wasn't bad. I loved when he said something about Liza Minellli & her medicine cabinet. C

REBECCA-I liked this sketch because of Gary. What a cute dog. I loved Mayas face when Gore was talking about politics. C

WEST WING-This was all right. I don't watch the West Wing so I will give this sketch an average rating because it was a good sketch. C

JARRETTS ROOM-Seth Meyers looks good in leather. He looked like a stripper or one of the members of the Village People. I thought it was funny when Gobi thought the lead singer of Phish looked like Chuck Norris. Good move. I think this is the first time I give this sketch an A

PHISH "46 Days"-Cool the MG is after Jarretts Room. This song was good. A

WU WITH FALLON/FEY-Will Forte was cut as Tim Calhoun & Fred Armisen was cut as Fericito. I thought it was funny when Amy & Rachel were talking about Jimmy being a virgin & Tina wanted to pay to have sex with him. Fave Joke: With a Sunday deadline for a transit strike looming, New Yorkers face a possible Monday morning commute without subways or buses. In response, the city has designated areas where large groups of people go around and shove people. C

STUART & THE GORES-I have always liked this sketch. Tipper looks like she would be good at acting. This was the first time I've seen this sketch in person. C

WILLY WONKA-I thought I would never see this sketch again. Jeff does a good Willy Wonka. Chris Kattan was a cute Oompa Loompa. Amy really does look like Charlie. A

TV FUNHOUSE:PEANUTS CHRISTMAS-This was a funny cartoon. I love Peanuts. I wonder why its called Peanuts? I dedicate this sketch to Sean Bradley, the owner of <> because he's playing my favorite Peanuts character, Linus in his college play Charlie Brown Christmas. A

PHISH"Chalk Dust Torture"-This song was good too. A

ON THE HOUSE-This was good next to the one in the subway. Maya sounded like a muppet which isn't a bad thing. I like Muppets. B

HORATIO CHRISTMAS TREAT-I have always loved this sketch. Jimmy really did look like Harry Potter. He should play an older Harry Potter in the movie. Horatio was a cute teddy bear. A

AFTER-SHOW THOUGHTS-This wasn't a bad show. Al Gore can be funny & Phish isn't bad. What happened to Kattans recurring sketches? [Mango/Peepers] Is this his last season? I give this show an A
