OK, this is pretty funny:
The Mooch skit… not so much.
Yeah Hader’s bit was a little scenery-chewing although I like the name ‘Goombah Beetlejuice’. Eric sticking his tongue on the spinner had us rofl. It was best when it was just Michael and Colin, as usual.
The beetlejuice bit was the only part that made me snicker.
I do think Colin is going to go down in the history books as one of the greatest Weekend Update hosts of all time. He’s really perfect.
Love Bill Hader but he has always been best when he is doing his own, unique characters not satirizing real people. Plus, the Mooch is already over the top in his own NY assholeness so it’s hard to do an alternative take. I also liked the Trump sons take but you need to remember that from the very beginning of SNL, Weekend Update has always had periodic guest features so not likely to be just Colin and Michael every week. In fact, “gay NY club reviewer”, Stefan, created by Hader, was one of those regular guest characters and quite a hilarious one too.
