People love Bobby Moynihan's Jake the Snake Roberts

ZOË RICE: I thought the 2nd go at this (I guess) recurring sketch was better than the first, but it’s still too much Kenan for me. Al Gore is great, though! I loved watching his expression as he’s hit by the keyboard and then at the end by confetti. Bobby Moynihan’s tap dancing snake-bedecked wrestler made me laugh, and Mindy Kailing’s always refreshing to see. But I still had to fast forward through some of the “What up with that” choruses.

STEVE MURPHY: Oh this just keeps getting better and better. If I could pick any sketch from this season to repeat, it would be this one. Two real and very famous celebrities this time! Even before it started I was excited. Kenan’s best character ever, plus it’s my favorite kind of sketch, where the whole cast ends up on stage in absurd outfits dancing like crazy people. Interrupting Al Gore while he’s talking about the environment is hilarious. Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts? Andy Samberg as the budget clown? Jason Sudeikis breaking it down the whole time in a track suit? Sign me up for this one every time.

Bobby Moynihan gathers skit ideas from Fair City News?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Saturday Night Live recently honored Fair City News by bringing “Catch the Swine Fever” to life in a sketch that aired nationwide on NBC November 7, 2009. The original FCN story posted April 28, 2009 and was picked up by SNL writers who comb the Internet’s best satire websites searching for material.

On Monday, contributing FCN writer John Mello reportedly left a voicemail for FCN founder Chad Harris that said, “I don’t know if you saw it, but they totally stole our story”.

According to Google analytics, writers for NBC’s hit show Saturday Night Live regularly read to find inspiration for their sketches and entertainment. The original FCN story is listed here, the SNL version here.

“The FCN article was hilarious and really helped to form our sketch ‘Cater ‘N Sons’. The BBQ theme, the advertising message gone bad, the doctor saying it will kill you, everything about it helped make one of the funniest sketches I’ve ever participated in,” said Featured Player Bobby Moynihan, Jr.

SNL creator, Lorne Michaels, said, “Over the last thirty years, SNL has launched the careers of many of the brightest comedy performers of a generation. Since the launch of Fair City News, our show has been recharged. We hope to pay forward the favor by extending contracts to the writers of FCN.”

When asked about concerns over copyright infringement Harris said, “it is a great honor to be recognized as a top tier comedic resource. I saw the sketch and they did a nice job with it, very funny. We encourage the staff at SNL to browse our pages seeking content for use in their program. However, don’t even try to steal our writers without fairly compensating us first.”

SNL regularly lampoons many aspects of contemporary American society, such as politics and popular culture. The program has won 19 Emmy Awards, been honored with the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award, cited as “truly a national institution.” and was inducted into the Broadcasting Hall of Fame by the National Association of Broadcasters.


So this article was written by FCN, and so it's definitely from their perspective. However, it seems legit.

This hoopla is based on this little article, which isn't overly funny (but it made a funny SNL commercial):

Bobby Moynihan - Joseph Gordon-Levitt's monologue


Joseph Gordon-Levitt
Bobby Moynihan

So this monologue isn't in the full episode shown online either. What was it about?

Here's a review:

ZOË RICE: Sigh. I saw Joseph Gordon-Levitt (whose name is too long, so now it’s JGL) on Jimmy Fallon the other night, and I gotta say I didn’t like him. I thought he came across as affected, and what’s with his twinge of fake New York-ish accent? But he mentioned his monologue on the show, said it was his idea, and that he’d been working on it for weeks. But what makes the monologue songs on SNL funny is that the writers rework the lyrics (or write original ones) to be biting and clever. Doing a second-rate version of the great Danny Kaye just didn’t move me. JGL’s jumps at the end were impressive, and I enjoyed watching Bobby Moynihan punch him, but overall this number struck me as JGL indulging in himself.

STEVE MURPHY: Joseph Gordon-Levitt…. talk about a guy who doesn’t have any brand recognition with me. I had no idea who was hosting this show until the kid from 3rd Rock From the Sun walked out on stage. But… hot damn! I mean… that was incredible! He wasn’t specifically funny, but that was a completely legitimate Broadway performance, and I was solidly entertained. Great dancing, solid singing… let’s see those auto-tuned Glee kids do that! Bobby Moynihan was perfect, and actually did make ‘em laugh. I’m loving this kid and this episode so far. Fantastic.

Full Episode:

Joseph Gordon-Levitt hosts Saturday Night Live with musical guest Dave Matthews Band.

Kristen and Lauren - got a picture with Bobby Moynihan

This comes from our Andy Samberg blog reader and friend, Kristen H:

I flew to NYC for the weekend and was midtown Saturday night so my friend Lauren and I decided to head over to NBC studios around 1 a.m. to try and spot the SNL cast members as they left. Well, they all came out and were extremely friendly. Everyone stopped to sign autographs, take pictures and chat. Joanna Newsom was there and looking lovely. She seemed genuinely surprised when we asked for a photo with her, but we are fans of her music. She was as sweet as can be.

Andy was also friendly, but was distracted and tons of people were calling his name.

Bill Hader was so sweet and very modest; it was obvious that he was happy to be there and happy to talk to his fans.

Jorma and Akiva were also friendly and took pictures and talked with everyone.

And here's Bobby Moynihan!!!

Bobby Moynihan - in The Making of "Firelight"

Go behind the scenes in the makeup chair for the Firelight Digital Short.

This is such a huge contrast between the normal low-budget digital short skits they do, like this week's "Get Out." Of course, the songs they do are about the same as far as production values go and the effort they put into them.

Bobby Moynihan - is Alfred Hitchcock in Rear Window

Rear Window

The suspense is unbearable.

Grace has a farting problem.

January cracks when Bobby comes in as Hitch at the end and with Jason's last line at the end. I think they might have been improv-ing a bit and catching her off guard, because she never cracked at the big lines and the fart sounds, so she was probably ready for those.

Bobby does pretty good. Horatio Sanz used to play Alfred. I'm glad they're still doing him with Bobby, and Jason's Jimmy Stewart is pretty good.

That's it. Just 2 skits this week for Bobby. At least he got to be Alfred, a prominent character in this skit.

The Doctor's secret is out.

More gay jokes. Bobby supports Bill Hader's gag here.

Review of Bobby Moynihan in Swine Fever

STEVE MURPHY: A simple, cute idea. And once again… not terrible. We seem to be surfing just ahead of the mediocre line tonight. So far I am not unhappy… but I haven’t really laughed yet, either.

ZOË RICE: Not bad, not great. Overall that would also be my response to the show as a whole (and Steve, it seems like we’re on the same wavelength here). In 2002, a BBQ joint without foresight advertises you’ll get “swine fever!” by loving their ribs. Cue disclaimers that “swine flu” is a completely different beast–oops.

HOWARD MEGDAL: Well, I laughed quite a bit at this. And Steve, how can you not be happier to see Bobby Moynihan get his own commercial?!?

Bobby Moynihan blog is back on Google Blog Search!

Finally! We're back on Google Blog Search!

So when you search for a topic on the Google Blog Search, then they will first list a Web site at the top if the site is full dedicated to the topic.

So we've got our Andy Samberg one up there:

And our Aubrey Plaza blog is up there:

But our Kristen Wiig blog isn't up there yet:

Here's that blog:

So Google, if you're reading this, could you add our Kristen Wiig blog? =^)


Anyway, so what happened was the Live Journal was up there early this year, and then our Bobby blog got added. Then this summer, we took a few months off this blog and basically they took down this blog and the Live Journal site. The Live Journal site dried up, probably in May. So anyway, we're back, and they put the blog back on. We'll be sure to give more steady blog posts so that this doesn't happen again.

Thanks to all our readers!

Two worlds collide in this Twilight parody.

This is an amusing Twilight parody. Andy plays the cool guy at the beginning (looks like a vampire). And then later on he also plays a mummy. Glad he got in the digital short this week. Interestingly, Andy also made fun of Twilight appearing in it during the MTV Movie Awards opening. Taylor Swift also appeared in that short, where she asked Andy out to a dance. So here we are again with another Twilight parody!

Bobby has a nice milk gag.

Is Bobby Moynihan going to save SNL?

Jon at Gunaxian thinks so.

Check it out here:

Meet Bobby Moynihan, a second year castmate on SNL, the sole reason (besides Megan Fox’s cans on the season premiere) that I tune in.

In includes a comparison to Andy Samberg:

Just like Andy Samberg has done in recent years, this funnyman is going to create memorable characters to carry this show. Yeah, so he looks like Artie Lange and isn’t easy on the eyes, but his skits so far might be just the thing to save this great show. You are going to be hearing a lot of Moynihan in the coming years with two major movies coming out over the next year.

Click here to read the rest:

Jon has picked some great skits as his favorites that we've already posted here. It's a nice compilation. Here they are again...

Bobby Moynihan - in When in Rome (trailer)

Bobby's got a few funny lines in this trailer:

This looks pretty good with humorous appearances by Dax Shepherd as well.

Looks like Bobby filmed this before he started on SNL.

About the movie:

An ambitious young New Yorker, disillusioned with romance, takes a whirlwind trip to Rome where she defiantly plucks magic coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of those who threw them in.

Bobby Moynihan - Biography

Somebody on Wikipedia loves Bobby, because he has a quite a great bio.

Robert "Bobby" Moynihan, Jr. (born January 31, 1977) is an American actor and comedian who is currently a cast member on Saturday Night Live.

Moynihan outside of NBC Studios before his premiere on "Saturday Night Live" in 2008:

Born: January 31, 1977 (1977-01-31) (age 32), Eastchester, New York

Occupation: Actor, Writer, Comedian

In summer 2008, Moynihan had a supporting role in the popular web-series The Line, an online video project funded by Lorne Michaels' production company, directed by SNL head writer Seth Meyers, and starring SNL cast members Bill Hader and Jason Sudeikis. He is a regular improv/sketch comedian at New York City's Upright Citizens Brigade Theater and on many Sunday nights he can be found improvising with fellow SNL alumni in the theater's long-running hit improv show ASSSSCAT 3000. In addition, Bobby also frequently performs along with other UCB regulars in the Derrick Comedy sketch group and appeared in several of their popular internet videos and various projects, most recently Moynihan filmed a supporting role in the group's feature film Mystery Team, which premiered at Sundance in 2009. Prior to joining SNL he was a sketch regular on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and a contributing writer on MTV's Human Giant, and in years past, he often submitted scripts to SNL with his comedy partner Charlie Sanders. Moynihan has also acted in a number of comedy shorts for the website, including their recent web-series Every Week on Entourage where he plays "Turtle" from Entourage.

During the summer of 2008, Moynihan gained a bit of recognition when he was featured in a national television ad campaign for ESPN Radio with Yankees broadcaster Michael Kay. In the summer of 2009, Moynihan starred in the music video for Colbie Caillat's single, "Fallin' For You".

Notes from the editor: This information is key, because while Bobby had a great resume up to this point (a career in Web comedies, submitting scripts to SNL, appearing on Conan, writing for Human Giant, and performing at the UCB theater in almost half a dozen different groups), it was really this "The Line" gig that got him in at SNL. That's where he met Lorne, Seth, Bill, and Jason.

View "The Line" here:


Recurring Characters on SNL

1. Mark Payne, a ghetto-acting white waiter who works at Pizzeria Uno. Wears a black dew-rag and a black and blue button-down T-shirt featuring Sagara Sanosuke from the anime Rurouni Kenshin and always complains about inconsequential things around the pizzeria (the smell of pepper on the first sketch on the episode hosted by Michael Phelps; how sticky the bar counter is in the second sketch on the episode hosted by Tim McGraw). In the first sketch, Mark had a child that he left on a bus and didn't realize it until the end of the sketch. The child was never mentioned in the second sketch. Moynihan has said in interviews that the character is a tribute to his days of working as a bartender for almost 10 years.

2. Vinny Vedecci Jr, the son of Bill Hader's Italian talk show host, Vinny Vedecci. Wears a black and white child's sailor suit. Always wants to asks celebrities ridiculous questions, but the celebrities can't understand his broken English, which makes him cry (until Vinny gives his son a cigarette and a drink of wine).

3. Liam, one of the kids' in Gilly's (played by Kristen Wiig) elementary school class. It is often implied that he hates his stepfather.

4. Obnoxious Microphone Guy, a very annoying man who attends parties and other events, will at some point steal the microphone from the emcee (usually played by Jason Sudeikis) and obnoxiously scream "WHAAAAAAAAAT!" into the mic before dropping it on the floor.

Notes from the EDitor:

Okay, this is a problem. Bobby has been featured on the show for two years now, and he needs to break out with more characters. All these characters above are hilarious, but Liam is in Kristen's Gilly skit, Vinny Jr. is in Bill's Vinny skit, Microphone Guy only has one line per skit, and Mark Payne has only been done twice.

Bobby as Vinny Jr:
Vinny's Son (John Malkovich)
Vinny's Son (Drew Barrymore)

Bobby as Obnoxious Guy:

Bobby as Mark Payne:

Bobby needs new characters stat! He had a great "Simply Victor" retarded character he did before SNL. If Kristen can do a retarded and deformed character, then Bobby should be able to do that one. Plus Bobby needs to talk to the other players and come up with duo or trio skits. In the last popular age of SNL (when Will Ferrell was leading the cast), they all had a ton of duo skits going on. Bobby needs to help bring that back!

Bobby as Simply Victor:
Simply Victor


Celebrity Impersonations on SNL

David Crosby
Guy Fieri
Barney Frank (in the "Barack Obama Variety Show" sketch; Barney Frank is usually played by Fred Armisen but Armisen had to portray Obama for the sketch).
Garfield the cat
Gonzo the Great
Peter King
Nathan Lane
Mr. Mistoffelees (from Cats on Broadway)
Wayne Osmond
Richard Shelby
Rich Sommer (as Harry Crane on Mad Men)

Notes from the EDitor:

This is good. I think this was a strong contributing factor to keeping Bobby on: his impressions. And I think he knows this, because he didn't do many impressions before SNL (so he's upped his game in this area). His Garfield and Gonzo are a bit weak, and he only did them because Andy Samberg paved the way with his Cathy and Swedish Chef (both turned into larger ensemble skits).

Whoever wrote this was probably thinking whether or not Bobby's Optimus Prime impression should be included. =^)

Bobby as Optimus Prime:
Optimus Prime

And they definitely should have mentioned his spot-on impression of Lenny from Of Mice and Men:
Of Mice and Men

They also didn't mention his impression of Turtle from Entourage (January 09; Neil Patrick Harris monologue), which got him the job playing Turtle in College Humor's Entourage spoof.

Bobby's Mr. Mistoffelees and Snagglepuss are so good that he should be pitching skits that center around those characters. I could see Mr. Mistoffelees in a story skit and Snagglepuss hosting his own show where he interviews other cartoon characters (and maybe makes advances on them because he's gay).

Bobby as Mr. Mistoffelees:

Bobby as Snagglepuss:

I also see his strength in his Nathan Lane and Guy Fieri impressions. Either one of those could also be the center point of a show where the character hosts a show (this is a no-brainer for the Guy Fieri impression, since he already hosts a show). Also, I think Bobby Moynihan could take his Guy Fieri impression up a notch and do some disgusting food jokes. For example, instead of pouring gravy on a plate (as he did once), he could pour it on his head and in his mouth.

Bobby as Nathan Lane:
Nathan Lane (So you committed...)

Bobby as Guy Fieri:
Guy Fieri (Obama Cold Open)
Guy Fieri (Cooking Al Fresco)
