“Old school SNL” means something different to everybody. It depends on how old we are. And yet it also doesn’t matter to some extent.
Funny is funny.
There was a particular era of SNL cast members where this sentiment rings true. Chris Farley, David Spade, and Chris Rock–to name a few–created timeless, classic sketches, as well as a brand of comedy that was and is hilarious to the masses. And a bunch of this generation of SNL alums is still going strong with their brand of comedy in TV, movies and, thankfully, stand-up.
Oh, almost forgot to mention “the Sandman” himself:
Actually, I didn’t forget. This blog post is about the aforementioned SNL generation that was very much defined by Adam Sandler. His triumphant return to the stage of stand-up comedy via Netflix will hopefully inspire a new generation of aspiring comedians to learn from a golden generation.
That would be fresh.
