I love to laugh, I love to make people laugh.  When I was younger, I thought I might be a comedian.  My daddy asked me why and I replied "Because I'm funny."  He replied "Well, looks aren't everything". Took me a long time to figure one out.

Live from New York, it's Saturday Night

I'm not certain when my obsession with Saturday Night Live started but it goes way back! I used to dream of being a cast member.  This lasted a hot minute until I realized that as an actor you get told no a lot and I don't like being told no.  I had VCR tapes of SNL episodes - those I recorded myself and a few that I purchased.  The Tom Hanks/Aerosmith episode is the first I remember buying.   I watched it over and over and have some of it committed to memory.  Hanks is talking to Wayne and Garth about being a roadie for Aerosmith "I have to make sure the scarves are always in the right place."

The show has been through ups and downs but generally, Weekend Update is a bright spot.  Of course, Tina and Amy are my favorites.  I want to be Tina Fey when I grow up.  Amy and Seth and Seth alone are also favorites.  I'm enjoying Michael Che and Colin Jost right now.  One of the best gifts I ever received was a Tina & Amy Weekend Update set complete with action figures (thank you Rae!)!

Much to Ryan's chagrin, DVR has really upped my SNL game.  I now have a my favorites recorded and I rewatch them often.  Right now, I can't stop watching the Donald Glove/Childish Gambino episode.

What I really love is when SNL lands an unexpected host, like Peyton Manning.  I didn't know much about Peyton before his SNL episode but I loved him after. I'm goofy and I'm a fan of others being goofy.  Peyton is for sure goofy in his episode.

No delightful insight today. I just wanted to share somethings that make me laugh and hopefully put a smile on your face.  Have a great day!
