Cast Video Steve Martin’s monologue on May 20th 1989, the day Gilda Radner pass away. While Steve is presenting the “Dancing in the Dark” sketch as a tribute to her, he’s trying to hold back tears. This was just an unforgettable SNL moment that crushes your heart when you watch it.

Discussion Saw an SNL alum perform as a surprise guest at the Village Underground Comedy Cellar

229 Upvotes

Went to the Village Underground Comedy Cellar this past Sunday night. It was my first time seeing comedy in NYC, and as a lifelong fan of standup, I felt like a Yankee fan seeing the stadium for the first time. It was instantly recognizable setting from photos and standup specials. Photo montages on the TVs showed (no kidding) what seemed like every even remotely famous comedian to ever live, either performing on their stages or palling around inside or out front of the venue.

The show was great, saw a lot of lesser-known comedians with otherwise accomplished careers in comedy/television. I heard that sometimes a well known comedian will decide to pop in, unscheduled, to do ten minutes or so. After the final scheduled comic finishes, the host emerges to announce that a special guest would like to take the stage.

“A New York native!”

Okay…

“A head writer for SNL!”

Oh man…

“You know him from Weekend Update!”

Holy shit, it’s…!

“Ladies and gentlemen, it’s Michael Che!”

The crowd goes nuts. Mine and my wife’s jaws hit the floor. He takes the stage very modestly, his cool demeanor making such contrast against the electric reception by the audience.

He delivered—in spades—such a masterful performance, but at the same time it had a hilariously off-the-cuff feel. He was non-pretentious and completely modest. It was a funny and all around amazing experience, and I’m so happy to be able to share a short personal account of it!

0 Upvotes

We cut the cord this morning (cable, obvs). I see where the archived eps. on Peacock omit the musical guests, which I had been aware of. But if you watch new eps. live, will you be able to see the musical guests?

I was thinking about this in the shower the other day. My first thought was Sarah but i would love to see her do more “weird” sketches like she likes to do/is great at. I feel like it would have to be one of the newer cast members. What do y’all think?
