    Saturday Night Live recap: Jason Momoa is really hot, but is he funny? (Videos)

    We all know Jason Momoa is very hot. This week the Aquaman star hosted Saturday Night Live for the first time. It’s surprisingly more difficult when the host is a hot man. Not because hot men aren’t funny, but because the show often leans too heavily on the fact that they are stone cold hunks for jokes. Sometimes these jokes work, sometimes they don’t. It hinges on the host’s likeability.

    Michael Che teases Jerrod Carmichael Netflix project on Instagram

    If you follow Michael Che on Instagram, then you know that he doesn’t post. He almost exclusively posts text-based rants on his Instagram story (no, he still has not seen Nanette).

    Saturday Night Live 40th anniversary In Memoriam honors crew, not just cast (Video)

    Saturday Night Live cast members, past and current, will always give tremendous props to the crew members who work behind the scenes.

    Saturday Night Live’s season 40 premiere was a disappointment so it can only get better, right?

    One of the most difficult forms of comedy to execute well is live sketch. I think even the most casual comedy consumers can agree on this. When you see live sketch comedy at a theater done well, it’s magical. When it’s bad, it’s not just bad– it’s excruciating to watch. And this is why I root for Saturday Night Live every year. I understand how impossible it is to deliver
