Default Madtv takes a shot at a SNL cast member

Quote:
On MadTV last night, they had a fake commeercial for Nitrous Oxide. Their slogan was "Nitrous Oxide: Keeping Horatio Sanz laughing at his own jokes for three years."
I got this message from the SNL board that I post on. I didn't watch MadTv last Saturday so can anybody tell me more about this sketch?

It wasn't a sketch so much as it was one of those "the second half of Madtv is bought to you by" fake commercial break deals in between sketches.

And it has all of these fake and weird products...........and the last one was about the nitrous oxide.............


BTW this isnt the first time Mad has taken a swipe at either SNL or it's castmembers.

I loved that. Horatio Sanz is horrible and all he does is laugh at his own jokes.

I so agree Bryansgirl. His Rosie impression looks sooo bad. He looks like a guy trying to be a girl. Yet so does Rosie O'Donnel.

lmao! I don't even know how Jimmy Fallon and Horatio can keep cracking up over and over during their scenes - the jokes aren't funny!

That was funny. I really don't think he's funny.

why don't we kidnapped Josh Meyers' brother and force him to do skits for MADtv. That would give the series some popularity.

Yeah but at the same time it could get a little boring, having them both on the same show instead of competing shows.

Ive actually never seen Seth do anything so I can't give a good review of both of them.

I'm not a fan of any of the new SNL lineup. I'm a fan of the late 80's early 90's lineup with Dana Carvey and Phil Hartman.

Yeah right! Seth is SOOO much funnier than Josh. Josh never laughs at himself, he's always so serious, and the only thing he ever does as far as sketches are concerned is make out/beat up Ike. His impressions are better than Seth's, but Seth does alot more work on his own (Ie, My High School Reunion) Josh is almost never doing something on his own. It's like he and Ike have to hold hands to do practically anything. Seth doesn't really act as much as Josh, but he's got more personality than Josh. Even in scenes where Josh is with other people, sometimes I feel like I'm watching a living piece of cardboard.

A few years ago, I believe in season 6 or 7, there was this sketch that had President Bush in the Oval office and he was writing this list of some sort, and he made a swipe at Chris Kattan.

In the D list celebrity thanksgiving sketch, I believe that Mo as Mary Hart made a swipe at Chris Kattan

And in the christmas ep from season 8, at the end of the episode in the sketch where stephnie plays this girl that sees santa so santa has to kill her, well during the credits, that sketch played and after stephnie left or got knocked out or something, it was just Michael as Santa and he sprinkled this magic dust while saying "and now I'd like for you all to forget about a little show called SNL"

Ms. Swan on the 200th episode... but that wasnt really makeing fun of it.


I think the Myers brothers are both funny. Josh is funny, and seth too. Seth laughs at himslef, which is funny, but Isnt professional.

I think whawt he was trying to say was that its perfectly acceptable if a castmember laughs at themselves or makes a mistake or a blooper during sketches, but to do it a HUGE amount of the time is just really unprofessional.


Mo does it, but not enough to make it unprofessional

Except that with the MADtv cast members, it is actually understandable that they'd laugh...since MAD is actually funny. SNL cast members have no reason to laugh. I bet the whole thing is just publicity. They are trying to MAKE people laugh at their "jokes."
