-This skit was okay. It wasn't really bad, but I don't think it was anything great.

GRADE: B-

 

[SKETCH] Garth Brooks falls for Mango

-Kattan's Mango is one of my favorite characters. I liked how Garth Brooks grabbed a little souvenier when he was leaving Mango's dressing room. It was funny how Mango kept popping up in that little cloud and "Missing" would play.

GRADE: A+
