I'm not getting it tonight its just not funny.

2. Not funny tonight? Or any night.

Skits always last longer than the humor.

3. Bill Maher pulls that BS all the time.

I finally had it with his "sense of humor" a few weeks ago.

22. Yes, and he "does his own research" (Google) becuz he's an independent thinker....yeah, I've heard

him say that before.

I do give him credit for recently calling bs on the "both sides do it" argument on a recent show. I cheered when I saw that...

5. SNL, Colbert -- I don't bother watching & it's largely the ragging on Biden's age and brain

We endured 4 solid years of Trump and Trumpistas and all the sheer insanity that entails, and we are still suffering thanks to TFG. We could still lose our democracy.

What on earth do the comedians think is funny about Biden’s intelligence and cognitive abilities overall? There’s plenty to rib him about without trying to cut him down to Trump’s size — just look at Dark Brandon.

Right — maybe a lot of us should drop a line to all the late night comics and clue them in to Dark Brandon. Now, that would be funny.

14. Yeah, Stephen has been really disappointing lately.

I like his aviator glasses schtick, but the ageism crap, not so much. He's getting hard to watch, especially since those jabs don't even apply--other than to Trump.

8. I haven't seen an entire episode since 1985.


I was all in from the first show in 1975, but it got unfunny fast after Eddie Murphy left.

9. Yeah it was from last season and it was political humor

which I greatly enjoy and encourage. Politics like anything exists in a vacuum. The characters that fill that vacuum are fair game as far as I'm concerned. Hell, if Twain could only satirize one side his exposure of the often insane human nature of the characters in politics would forever be buried.

I would bet Joe got a chuckle out of it because he is a sane man of political insanity. Gotta laugh at yourself and your ideology or you end up like one of THEM

Besides, dRumphs flying monkeys were to busy sitting on a confederate flag covered bar stool bitching that Slim Jims cost 3 bucks now instead of a dollar and it's all Joe's fault.

Disclaimer: I'm pissed a Slim Jim is 3 bucks, but I'm not blaming Joe

10. You realize it's not their job to be cheerleaders?

Their job is comedy and satire.

I haven’t seen an episode in years, but don’t particularly care what they push out.

12. All the late night 'comics' do this...

But I know Colbert and Kimmel are staunch Dems, so I guess they're playing to wider audiences?

13. It was funny

the first one or two seasons…

And them getting Paul Simon to dress as a turkey was about the best visual I’ve seen from SNL.

But that was like forty years ago- haven’t watched the show since forever.

19. Me either. At some point, the humor became juvenile -- like what would appeal to a 14 yo.

16. SNL has made fun of every President

 

Since...what was it, Ford and Chevy Chase?

You want them to treat him as if he's fragile and special?

26. You are going back how many years? I don't find it funny and well remember when Reagan

was in office that they had him look like a bumbling fool and then he snapped into genius Reagan...this isn't the first time I have seen SNL literally attempting to tip the scales. I don't like it, especially at this point in history. Unless they get a better cast, they should put SNL out of its misery.

23. Their writing has been lazy for a while.

It got a little better around 2017, and then took a nose-dive again. It also doesn’t help that the cast sucks now, to be honest.

They could find so many other funny things to make fun of Biden for, other than “Omg! He’s old!” Or, if they’re going to do that, at least do something clever.

Live funny lately and have stopped watching it.

27. It's terrible when comedians aren't properly deferential

Their job should be to speak funny and inoffensive to power.

As for SNL. It has always been hit or miss. People remember the good skits with nostalgia and forget there has always been a lot of mediocre filler.

People who can watch these and not find them hilarious are suspect, IMO.

They have had some hysterical skits in the last few years:
