SKETCH: JANET RENO'S DANCE PARTY

I WAS GLAD TO SEE THIS SKETCH BACK BECAUSE THE ONES THEY WERE USING RENO IN WEREN'T AS FUNNY AS DANCE PARTY I LOVE TO HERE HIM SAY MEAN THINGS TO THE KIDS AND THE FIGHT WITH GUILIANI WAS FUNNY TOO "JUST SHUT UP, SHUT IT, I'M SICK AND TIRED OF YOUR LIES!"

SKETCH: PERSPECTIVES

NOW I AM A BIG FAN OF THIS ONE NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES THEY DO IT I ALWAYS LAUGH AND FOR A FINAL SKETCH IT WAS PRETTY DARN GOOD "FANTASTIC!"

A+

 

OVERALL:

NOW CONSIDERING I WAS WORRIED IT WOULDN'T BE THAT GREAT OF AN EPISODE WITH GUILIANI HOSTING BUT FOUND THAT HE CAN BE PRETTY FUNNY BUT I NOTICED THAT LIKE THE SYLVESTER STALLONE EPISODE IT DIDN'T LOOK LIKE THEY COULD GIVE HIM MANY CHARACTERS TO PLAY BECAUSE MOST OF THE SKITS WERE CENTERED AROUND THEMSELVES BUT NEVER THE LESS THIS WAS STILL A FUNNY EPISODE

OVERALL GRADE: A
