|Last night in Poughkeepsie Al's opening act was Jimmy Fallon. He came out after the show and I had the opportunity to ask him if he could use any influence he had to get Al on SNL. He said he didn't know what he could do, but it was just as much as a surprise to him (as it is to us) that Al has never been on it.|
|Falon is probably a fan of Al's.... his parodies on last year's MTV music video awards|
|now that Chris Katan (sp?) has left SNL, Jimmy Falon is probably the most well-known and popular of the cast. If anyone on the cast has influence in getting Al a guest shot, it's Falon!|
|Hey, you know how on SNLs Weekend Update, Jimmy Falon and (something) Fay do joke offs? Well, if you don't, what they do is they take some big item from the news and take turns telling jokes about them, back and forth. It's really funny.
Wouldn't it be great to see Al and Jimmy Falon do a joke off of song parodies? It would be like Jimmy's parody routines but they would switch off with different songs, all about the same topic. Unfortunately, I think Jimmy would do better at this than Al.
Why, you ask? Well, as Al himself has admitted, he is not very good at improv or thinking on his feet. Even his answers in interviews seem to be pre-scripted, though still very funny.
Once upon a time \"Eat It\", along with MAD Magazine and a solid collection of Garbage Pail Kids, was an essential part of healthy immaturity. But Yankovic can't connect with a market raised on South Park and Eminem. The new role models lure ever-younger fans with an equally smart but jaded, foulmouthed outlook, forcing kids to abandon goofy fun long before they should have to.
