[OPENING] The Kulps Christmas caroling

A little bit different. liked it more than the other Kulp skits ...

Grade: B+

 

[SKETCH] The Delicious Dish on NPR

I never really found this skit very funny ... sorry, just my opinion..

Grade: C

 

[TV FUNHOUSE] Fun With Real Audio: Jesus aggravated by televangelist

I found this skit funny ... especially Jesus' Reaction to Kathie Lee

Grade: A

 

[SKETCH] The Ladies' Man

This skit gets funny every time I see it. Where was Tracy Morgan's stage-manager charactor Montell? Where was he the whole show anyway? Colin Quinn's calls are always funny as "The Caller with the Problems."

Grade: A+

 

[SKETCH] Baseball Christmas wish

This skit mainly focused on "SNL" showing off the cameos of baseball players they got to come.

Grade: C

 

[MUSICAL GUEST] Hanson (with 'Mmmbop')

Why did this come on before "Update"?

[WEEKEND UPDATE] with Norm MacDonald

Norm had some good jokes in there. Colin comes back as he did in the Sting episode ... too drunk to tell his jokes.

Grade: B+

 

[SKETCH] Roxbury Guys (with Jack Nicholson cameo)

Finally a skit where they start to talk. Another apperence by Nicholson. He should have been the Third hehe...

Well...the one humerous Thing in this skit was Using a Skeleton as Joan Rivers haha...Darrell Hammond was good too....

Grade: C+

 

[SKETCH] Burt Reynolds Christmas

This was pretty funny ... short though ... Will Ferrell Once again as Jerry Reed ...

Grade: B

 

[SKETCH] ChrismaSoft with Bill Gates

Well Kattan doesn't do Gates like McKinney did.

Grade: B

I knew they couldn't resist using Hanson in a Skit....No wonder this was at the end of the show...
