Pretty great SNL this week, everybody! Granted it didn't hurt having some guy named Zach Galifianakis making the yuk yuks and the hahas, but definitely one of the better episodes of the season. And considering we all love yuk yuks and we all love Zach, let's take a gander at some of the highlights from this week's episode.
First up. Zach's opening monologue. Classic Zach. Always dressing like Annie. Always killing it.
Moving along, on to the digital short. Perhaps the funniest sketch of the night, it followed probably the best formula there is: putting Zach Galifianakis in a room with children. Gold.
So this one's not too Galifianakis-centric. But funny sketches are funny sketches, so here's a funny sketch.
I'd just like to take a sec to point out that there was a joke in there regarding the shared human experience of walking in on your wife literally eating shit. Well done. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got tickets to White Bernie Mac to purchase.
One of the noticeable things about this week's episode was the consistency throughout. By nature of being a live sketch show that gets written and produced in the span of a week, you're going to have your ups and downs. I'm okay with that. It's kind of the contract Lorne Michaels had us all sign in 1975. Anyway, just getting that out there. Good week, everybody who works on Saturday Night Live. We appreciate what you're doing.
Oh, and for good measure, here's Zach getting his hair cut like Mr. T. No context necessary.
