Today we finish what we started yesterday: Two Days of Tuesday; two days of Kenan. REEEEEEE-POOOOOOOST. Let’s jump right in. Y’all like prison-based sketches, right?
In between clips, go back and watch Good Burger again. I’ll wait. Pretty funny, huh? Now pop in Fat Albert. I got nothin’ but time. Not bad, eh? It’s nearly four hours later than when you started reading this. Could you use a nap? NO TIME FOR THAT! Now check out this spot-on French dude impersonation. It’s increible!
That’s all the Kenan fit to print. Thusly, this ends the two days we spent together honoring, observing, and celebrating Kenan Tuesday. I’d like to say I feel a sense of spiritual connectivity between us, and it might be that feeling, but more likely it’s the Subway BMT I ate at midnight rebelling against me. Double meat, y’all!
Hope the rest of your day is chocolate, time for me to poop.
My name is Ben and I blogged this.
Re-post Tuesday is taking over two days this week in honor of SNL’s Kenan Thompson. Because today is Kenan’s birthday! And if Saturday Night Live can have a Thursday Night Update, I can have a Re-Post Tuesday on a Monday. Also, it’s not actually his birthday. I was trying to find another excuse for being a lazy, re-posting blogger. I had a crazy weekend? Yeah right, no one’s gonna believe that.
If I hear one statement more than all others regarding SNL it’s the one about how funny Kenan has “become.” The Kenan funny tree has been falling for years, we’re just starting to hear it make a sound. Maybe it’s because he’s a featured “feature player” now. Maybe it’s because SNL is hip enough to engage his “urban” talents. Maybe it’s because we finally stopped seeing him as the orange soda-chugging fat kid from that Nickelodeon show. I’m not here to analyze our misconceptions. I’m here to evidence funny. Exhibit A: The Digital Short from this past weekend. Say hello to Reba.
Good luck getting that song out of your head. The best way might be to stick this song in your head to chase it out. Like the old lady from the nursery rhyme who swallowed the spider to catch the fly. I don’t know why she swallowed the fly – Perhaps she’ll die. From swallowing a fly? What up with that?
Sorry, I’ve got nothing to get that song out of your head. That nursery rhyme suggests swallowing a cow to catch the dog, but that doesn’t sound right. Since when do cows catch dogs? Anyway, tomorrow we’ll close out two days of Kenan with a couple recurring characters from his arSeNaL. But while we’re on the subject of this past Saturday, I simply must mention the performance by Joseph Gordon-Levitt as host. I have never seen anyone – Host, cast member, or musical act – work harder than he did on that stage. His monologue took an impossible level of energythusiasm and somehow he found an auxiliary stash for the rest of the night. He was funny, and that was fun to see, but more fun still was watching him to commit to every scene like it was the climax of a Eugene O’Neill play. If anyone anywhere ever danced like no one was watching it was JG-L on SNL this past Saturday.
I’ve long been a fan of his and would have previously watched him in any film role. Now, I think I could watch him pick out apples at the grocery store. Dude can make anything exciting. Which is how some people describe me as a blogger. Yeah right, more people will believe I had a crazy weekend.
