MADtv vs. SNL?
« on: August 28, 2005, 02:51:12 am »
Just a matter of opinion?

SNL is definitely not as funny as before though they have better guests in my opinion, but Michael Mcdonald or Bobby Lee from MADtv always cracks me up.

Favorite MadTV sketch was probably when Will Sasso came back to do a parodied version of the Apprentice with Kenny Rogers :D

This topic would have been better with a poll, but what the heck?

I like SNL, their jokes are better thought out and funnier. MADtv is just saying random crap and hoping the audience laughs. I admit that some MADtv sketches are funny, like the muslim terrorist who was supposed to infiltrate American trust but found it very comfortable, but a lot more of the sketches I've seen are just "WHAT'S YOUR NAME, SEAN CONNERY?" "MY NAME IS TIFFANY LOL OMG!"

Oh come on!  You have to love the Depressed Persian Tow Truck Man.
I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

Damn!  A poll! My greatest weakness!

I dunno B-Rod, I find SNL cast members laughing at their own jokes. MADtv sketches are definitely more chaotic though, and yea some stuff is pretty random, but how can you hate Bobby Lee as the translator that can't translate? I liked SNL before I mean, Barry Gibb's talk show and the Adam Sandler days alway made me laugh, I guess I just don't like the current cast.

I find myself missing In Living Color or Chappele Show. Those were awesome sketch shows. And for Chappele show, it was my favorite sketch show of all :<

MADtv vs. SNL? Um... that is like asking to compare a root-canal to an IRS audit.

If they would spend time working up funny skits rather than just trying to fill air time with fart jokes it would be better. Sadly they just can't keep up the funny stuff long enough to make it interesting.

Yeah, I don't watch either because it's not entertaining for the hour that they have to fill every week. Why not wait 2 or 3 weeks, then come out with some funny sketches? You can't just rush comedy like that otherwise you get a sketch about 2 kids who say "YOUR STOOPID!?" "żNO YOUR STUPYD!" and then the audience laughs for no reason.

24 with Bobby Lee was a nice skit as well. Enough to make me chuckle a long time.

i saw this really stupid sketch on Mad TV.


A man sits on a chair and it make a farting sound. He spends the next five minutes trying to make the chair make the noise again. He finally farts and blames it on the chair. That was the most boring five minutes of my life.

SNL all the way. The only thing I ever loved on MadTV was their Rudolph claymation cartoon. It was a parody of the Godfather. HI-larious.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

SNL turned to crap over the years and all they do now is laugh at their own corny jokes.

I agree that 80's and under was better, but you still have to admit that it's better then Mad.

I don't really care for either show anymore.
