Reenter Sandman

“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:

Adam Sandler.

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.

We Can Reset, but on My Terms

When can you and when can’t you?

Depends on the situation and the person.

If it’s a normal individual, then it is within the realm of possibility to hit the “reset button” in certain circumstances. If that individual is Larry David from ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm,’ then the answer is definitely no.

Hilariously no.

And, in actuality, today is the perfect day to hit the aforementioned and ever-famous reset button. Why? Because the question posed at the top is “When can you and when can’t you?”

When? On Wednesday.

You have got to admit that’s pretty good…pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good.

Mr. Bean: The Magical Mute

Comedy lovers everywhere: We finally have the answer to that question…

I have no words.

Can a Jet Get Jet Lag?

Randomness is a wonderful thing.

‘Silicon Valley’ is a brilliant show, even without T.J. Miller. Although, admittedly, we do miss the on-screen hilarity of the obnoxious yet somehow likable¬†Erlich Bachman of “Bachmanity” and “Aviato” (spoken in that very specific manner).

The off-screen and behind the scenes T.J. Miller is another story altogether. And it was reportedly not a good one as revealed by castmates and executive producers/directors of the HBO show.

Regardless, there are so many fantastic characters who do make ‘Silicon Valley’ one of the best written and acted shows on television. One of these aforementioned characters is none other than Matt Ross who plays equal parts tech giant and megalomaniac,¬†Gavin Belson.

(FYI – There is one f-bomb in the video below)

That’s his character’s signature mentality. He has another signature–I’ll save that for another day when laughter is needed.
