April Saturday Night Live Hosts

Saturday Night Live is taking a short break between new episodes, but when the late night sketch comedy returns at the end of the month, they’ll be churning out three episodes in a row. After how great the recent back-to-back episodes hosted by John Mulaney and Idris Elba turned out to be, the pressure is on to keep the momentum going.

Thankfully, the three upcoming Saturday Night Live hosts set for the spring are exciting prospects since two of them are stars of hit TV shows hosting for the first time, and another is a comedy treasure who will be hosting for the fourth time.  Read More »

In this edition, a movie poster designer explains the various color scheme trends in movie marketing and what they mean.

Idris Elba Hosted Saturday Night Live

Idris Elba is best known for his roles in shows like The Wire or Luther, and big screen performances in the likes of Pacific Rim, Thor, Beasts of No Nation and Molly’s Game. But he’s certainly not known for his comedic chops. However, we’re hoping that changes after his hosting debut on Saturday Night Live this weekend. Not only was Idris Elba surprisingly hilarious, but he was extremely comfortable, and the result was an exceptional follow-up to last weekend’s stellar episode with John Mulaney.

So let’s run through the best and worst sketches of the Idris Elba hosted Saturday Night Live. Read More »

Saturday Night Live Stefon Movie

Back when Bill Hader was a cast member on Saturday Night Live, the character he became best known for playing was undoubtedly Stefon. The nightlife expert frequently appeared on Weekend Update to offer advice on New York’s hottest locations for various holidays and activities (even though he initially appeared in a completely different sketch when he was first created).

When Hader left the series in 2013, he was sent off with a wedding to his boy-toy Seth Meyers. Stefon has returned a couple times since then just for fun, but according to former SNL writer and Stefon co-creator and John Mulaney (who just hosted SNL again recently), there was once the nugget of an idea to give Stefon more screen time with his own movie. Find out about the Saturday Night Live Stefon movie below. Read More »

John Mulaney Hosted Saturday Night Live

John Mulaney returned to host Saturday Night Live for a second time this weekend. He’s a veteran of the late night sketch show, and he’s one of the best stand-up comedians working today, so the excitement was high. Mulaney somehow exceeded expectations, thanks to former cast member Bill Hader popping up a couple times, but also because the line-up of sketches for this episode was incredible. Even the worst sketch of the episode wasn’t terrible.
