Chris Farley / The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
October 25, 1997
[OPENING] Farley gets permission to host
Absolutely hilarious. It was good to see Chevy back on the show.
[MONOLOGUE] Chris Farley
It was cool to have three mini-monologues. Chris Rock really is on more than when he was on the show. Two words: "super-bad sponsor."
[COMMERCIAL] Yum Bubble Genital Herpes Gum
The most stupid commercial I have ever seen. I did not laugh at all.
[SKETCH] Morning Latte
Ferrell and Oteri just click really well in every sketch they are in together. "How funny is that?" Very.
[SKETCH] Mary Katherine Gallagher
Farley as a shy Catholic schoolboy? He pulled it off really well, and had some of the best dance moves I've ever seen.
[COMMERCIAL] Martha Stewart: Living promo
It was pretty good ... nothing really bad about it, but I just didn't think it was that funny.
[SKETCH] Matt Foley: Motivational Speaker
An incredible sketch. Classic Farley. Nonstop laughs.
[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Norm MacDonald
Good jokes, but Norm needs to learn how to deliver them. Stop trying to make up for poor delivery by telling audience to laugh because Farley needs a break. Morgan's commentary was good, I like it when people can make fun of themselves.
[MUSICAL GUEST] The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
Good song, but could somebody get the guy a throat lozenge? Poor performance counteracts the good song.
[SKETCH] Goth Talk
It was cool that the host wasn't the special guest on the show, but rather one of Glen's friends. The role fit Farley perfectly.
[THE LOST DEEP THOUGHTS] by Jack Handey
Decent, but not really up to the usual standard.
[SKETCH] The Sally Show
I didn't stop laughing the whole way through. The "special pants" was a nice touch, as was the arm ripping, shoe biting, plant tipping, mom tossing, etc.
[SKETCH] Hank Williams Jr. records Monday Night Football song
Pretty good, a bunch of laughs. It was Farley being wild as usual, plus a softer side that we all enjoyed.
[SKETCH] The Super Fans ... where are they now?
I laughed my head off. Farley knows how to have a heart attack. Nacho Cheese glue? What else?
[SKETCH] El Nino fights on The Weather Channel
Whoever thought of this sketch should get an Emmy. Classic material: "Weather vs. Wrestlers." "Yo soy El Nino!!!"
An instant classic. Farley is the best host so far this season, and it was the funniest show in a long time. Not having Norm in any skits sure helped, but it was Farley's overall presence that gives the show a ...
