Earlier this week, Mark Zuckerburg revealed that he found Aaron Sorkin’s The Social Network “very hurtful”. Sorkin responded, “I get it completely. I know that I wouldn’t want a movie made about the things I did when I was 19 years old.” While that movie has yet to be made, a whole bunch of sketches parodyingSorkin’s work have been. 30 Rock, MadTV, and Inside Amy Schumer have all lampooned Sorkin’s self-righteous speeches, walk and talks, and other Sorknisms.
Last night, Late Night with Seth Meyers aired The Sorkin Sketch, a parody that is both a deconstruction of Sorkin’s work and Sorkin parodies themselves. Last week many declared Too Many Cooks the be-all and end-all of 80’s sitcom intro parodies. The same could be said of The Sorkin Sketch and Sorkin parodies.
