  • Published on Sep 30, 2013
  • Tina Fey tries to differentiate between recently hired members of the SNL cast and members of the band Arcade Fire. Many of the new cast members try to interact with Tina only to be shouted down by game show host Kenan Thompson. [Season 39, 2013]

    True Fact: "The black one" they called Kenan when he actually started his carrer at SNL back in 1886.

    This is a great sketch that completely conveys the confusion and uncertainty that comes with every cast being replaced (and the ambiguity of Arcade Fire's presence)

    Damn Cicely Strong is sexyyy in that little dress bringing out the instruments.... 👌✌

  • I’m short pressed For a name

    I think eventually when Lorne does pass the torch, it’ll be to Kenan. He has been the longest cast member and knows the ropes better than anyone. He’d be the best choice to carry on the SNL legacy. Doesn’t need to die with Mr. Lorne Michaels.

    Anyone else mad that they brought out an Ovation Mandolin next to a Hurtie Gurtie? It’s a pretty stark contrast when you’re talking about “old timey instruments”

    What I love about SNL is how they train their cast members to always know exactly where the center of the camera's lens is. They're so talented that they can actually talk to someone else in the skit without ever taking their eyes off the camera!!! 👏👏👏👏

    A hurdy gurdy is fairly modern as far as instruments go. I mean not Electric Guitar or rubber pad that plays preprogrammed sounds but you know fairly new.

    I can just imagine that they keep their SNL actors in scientific tubes and every time they want to use one of them, they will open the tube and throw them our onto stage in costume and then put them back in.

    Lorne always does the same joke and is not particularly funny and it's kind of racist. Plus he is skeezy and reminds me of the weinstein type.
