Posted by: Marcus T at July 25, 2018 04:54 PM (q6u2X) My guess is that they pay the writers and the "talent" shit, so low cost of labor. Then they're not exactly competing with primetime ratings. And they probably don't spend shit for new sets except maybe once every two or three years.

112 I've been watching the devolution of comedy for decades now. I grew up with the Stooges, Uncle Miltie and the Catskills Jewish Mafia, Warner Brothers cartoons, Rocky and Bullwinkle, Red Skelton, Jackie Gleason, Phyllis Diller, you know, old school. No obscenity or profanity. I started to see a change in comedy with Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In and the Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour. Still no profanity, but they brought the political in. There had been political comedy before, like Mort Sahl, who was funny, and Lenny Bruce, who was not. As I hit puberty, it seemed like the beginning of a whole new world of comedy. George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Monty Python, SNL, Steve Martin,Second City Television, funny stuff, but with the first inklings of profanity. Mind you, there had always been profanity, but it was in adult only venues, like Vegas. People like Buddy Hackett and Redd Foxx were as profane as could be, but not on television or in movies. At first, saying "fuck" was like a whole new reality. I mean, why not? It's just a word. But, once that door was opened, graphic sex jokes and bizarre stage shows followed. Eventually, you had gay and lesbian humor, like that kind of behavior isn't funny enough. Really, once you cross a certain line, you end up with female "comics" talking about their periods and the times they were raped. I feel sorry for the young people of today. I also grew up with great music. Once rap came along, it was no longer about the music but about the attitude, the posing. I'm sure there are funny comedians out there now, we just don't see them on television any more. Once the personal becomes the political, you've stepped on to a slippery slope, and nothing good will come of it.

117 Che references recent Netflix comedy specials that seem to favor political correctness over humor.

134 NGU, trying to find details, but sounds like it - EU (surprise!!) didn't "go to war", but tried to make a deal with der Trumpenfuhrer. Just this morning, Sen. Johnson, who's no idiot and not a bad guy, was saying idiotic bad things about the trade policy situation. He correctly tapped into the best and most important negative of managed trade - it means political control of parts of the economy, picking winners/losers, cronyism, etc - but (dishonestly?) ignored the context. If Trump had happened upon a world of vigorous trade lacking tariffs, non-tariff barriers, subsidies, etc, then yes his approach would be stupid. But, umm. In each major case (EU, China, Japan) he's happened upon a world chock-full of subsidies tariffs and non-tariff barriers, but mostly (not entirely) being used by our trade partners, not the US. So.

178 Political humor can be funny - biting satire can be some of the best humor of all, when it's done right. But to be truly funny, it has to be truly subversive - it doesn't happen when it praises political orthodoxy, like all of these so-called comics do now. Want to know what would be the best political humor possible? Anything that would lead to a mob howling for it to be banned. Stage a serious sounding debate on Critical Race Theory with a bunch of white people in blackface, with little bits of rags tied in their hair. If political humor is safe, it can't possibly be funny, and if its funny, it can't ever be safe. that's why all attempts at political comedy today are so awful, because the so-called comedians pretend they're oh-so-brave, when in fact they are a pack of fucking cowards.

Well, oh shit, now I have to make sure it's accurate!  It was NOT a British officer.  

"When a group of British soldiers were on leave in London, publisher Jimmy Phillips chided them for singing a song in German, so the men challenged him to produce an English version. Phillips did so, in collaboration with Tommy Connor. Their "translation" offered words which differed from Leip's original poem. Although still plaintive, it was now a bitter-sweet song of dreaming about a distant love, rather than a plangent anti-war statement."

194 I have always thought Fox News made a big mistake moving Gutfeld to The Five. What they should have done was move Red Eye with its original cast to 11pm on Saturday only and competed directly with SNL By the time they gave Greg his own weekend show Red Eye was losing it's luster and the moment had passed.

Katusha - another good song. 
And would I be considered a lousy American if I said I like the tune for the Russian National Anthem - which is the same music for the State Anthem of the Soviet Union.

Then again, I've always liked Deutschland Uber Alles too.

"It was set to music by Norbert Schultze in 1938 and recorded by Lale Andersen for the first time in 1939. In early 1942 she recorded the song in English, the lyrics translated by Norman Baillie-Stewart, a turncoat former British army officer working for German propaganda.

Song writer Tommie Connor also wrote English lyrics with the title "Lily of the Lamplight" in 1944."

While the Krauts and the Brits were killing each other in North Africa, this song, Lili Marlene, was top of the charts on both sides of the lines although the Kraut version (the original) was in Kraut and the Brit version was in Brit. and thus WWII is reduced to the proto-Eurovision.

323 I loved Jan Hooks. Especially her stuff with Phil Hartman.
I know it's a slap at Republicans, but the skit where she played Nancy Reagan moving out of the White House--with Phil Hartman playing Barbara Bush--I still giggle when I remember that.

Phil Hartman playing Bill Clinton at McDonalds.
Jan Hooks as Kitty Dukakis in "Dukakis After Dark"-with a drunk Ted Kennedy (Phil Hartman) hitting on her.

Dan Ackroyd made some guest appearances as Bob Dole - he nailed the guy, always angry and clenching his teeth. 
"Bob Dole didn't grow up with a three-speed hedgecutter...he didn't have an automatic garage door opener..."

Even when Reagan was in office, SNL didn't seem to have a problem spoofing Democrats.

332 The left's new code-word for their fascist tendencies is "conversation." How can you tell when a leftist wants to impose fascist rules? They say they merely want to "start a conversation." Case in point: San Francisco seeks to ban companies from offering their own employees free lunches in company cafeterias: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/san-francisco-looks-to-ban-free-lunch-at-tech-companies/ What possible justification could they offer for this fascistic law? To force employees to spend money at the city's overpriced hipster restaurants. And, right on cue, the sponsor of the new fascist law explains, "This is the beginning of a conversation," he said. "We think it's an appropriate conversation to have now." Uh huh. "Conversation." Noting that down.
