Nathan Lane / Metallica
December 6, 1997


OPENING: Well Babies Tragedy

I thought it was a pretty good skit. Will Ferrel was hilarious and I liked Chris Kattan too.

B+

 

MONOLOGUE: Nathan Lane

Best monologue of the year with the exception of Chris Farley. i love it when the host interacts with the cast member and doesn't just stand on stage and tell jokes.

A

 

COMMERCIAL: Chess for Girls

An okay commercial. it didn't really do anything for me.

C

 

SKETCH: Spartan Cheerleaders dream

The best spartan cheerleader skit in a while. i liked when everyone kept saying,"Don't touch me, this is only a dream."

B+

 

SKETCH: The Quiet Storm

Hilarious skit, Tim Meadows is the man. I like the Latrell Sprewell line.

A

 

SKETCH: Sister Wendy Beckett

wasn't very funny, Nathan Lane is good though.

C

 

SKETCH: The history of Vaudeveille

Pretty funny, I like khow they did it in black and white. Lane and Kattan were good together.

B

 

WEEKEND UPDATE: Norm MacDonald

Norm always comes through with some good jokes. I didn't think that Nathan lane was very funny as the cop

C+

 

SKETCH: Vance helps Miss milo into costume

Why? It wasn't very funny at all. the worst skit of the night.

D

 

SKETCH: Santa Claus the ex-convict

Pretty funny, one of Colin Quinn's best characters. he usually isn't funny. but this was pretty good.

B+

 

OVERALL:

Not bad, but the first half of the show was a lot better than the second half. I like it better when the bands only do one song.

B-
