    great show guys! my highlights from the two shows:
    – the vanessa bayer news segment during weekend update killed me. so good! HAP!
    – the ru paul drag race sketch! loved it.
    – melissa mcarthy during the pie sketch! got a little long but her slapstick ability brought it home

  • Absolutely loved the Leslie & Kyle sketch from the past week!

    Also I originally thought Steve Martin’s cameo was a complete surprise but according to a few people on Reddit he also did it at the dress rehearsal too.

    love the recaps as always… but the “mother animal” sketch reminded me so much more of the “mom hair” sketch than the amy schumer crazy friend sketch.

    Agreed with your overall opinions.

    • You are 100% correct. I knew there was something else, but I just couldn’t pull it. thanks!!!

  • Melanie Novak

    Just want to say…love this podcast. Thanks Mike for taking up the mantle. Rich – killing it as always!
