SNL is the worst place to find good sketch comedy. I'm talking about the SNL that has been going downhill since the 90's, and with Tina Fey has apparently hit rock bottom.

Seems like what the SNL cast members need is tons of cocaine. For some strange reason, back in the 70s and 80s the cast members of SNL snorted blow by the mountains, and somehow they wrote their best material during those years.

I am will to provide any amount.

Here is something slightly related:
My dad was in a sketch show called Skitters at The Stand Comedy Club (a very well-respected stand-up comedy club in Edinburgh and Glasgow, for those of you who are unfamiliar with it) about five-and-a-half years ago. They performed during the Fringe (part of the Edinburgh festival, for those of you who are unfamiliar with it) and got good reviews and were compared to Monty Python (which was not totally realistic, but fairly close). Anyway, here is a review from the Scotsman.

Skitters
The Stand *****

The Stand has justifiably gained a reputation for providing a ready source of top-class stand-up artists.
However, the nine -strong Skitters crew - all but one of whom is a solo comic - are not afraid to branch out, and last night's large audience were treated, in the words of the most famous sketch team of all, to "something completely different".
Comparisons with the Monty Python team are perhaps a little exaggerated, but the talented group's performance certainly left no-one disappointed as they gave a series of fast-moving skits with the emphasis on satire.

Scottish folk music, rappers, PE teachers, Sherlock Holmes, Calvinistic televangists and even your friendly local newspaper were all kindly but firmly lampooned, complemented by occasional forays into slapstick
Whoever thought up the so-bad-it's-funny Spiderman at the Job-centre gag - "I could be a web designer" - belonged in the music hall camp, but there was more subtle material on offer as well.
Overall, the show was a pleasure, and similar performances during the Skitters forthcoming Fringe run should prove a hit.

END OF REVIEW

This next bit is also true. You may not believe me, but I don't care, because I know it's true. The Spiderman joke was mine: the only joke to be specifically mentioned in the review! My point is, I suppose, that if a young lad of nine (which I was at the time) can do that, then surely it can't be too hard for you. My idea for you: Spiderman at the Job Centre.


This can't end well.
