One of the Top Ten SNL's of all time
25 September 2014 | by packard8See all my reviews

Oh Dabney- how great thou art! You come out and the monologue falls flat. No audience response. Nothing. Then you proceed to make one of the best SNL's of all time. The sketch after this one are representative of the best of comedy writing, and in Dabney's able hands, we have an SNL that I still think about from time to time to this very day. The campfire sketch, the school naming project, the blind guy (fav) and of course the marriage counselor- brilliant in every sense of the word. Along with one of the best SNL ensembles ever assembled, and you have comedy gold. Top ten of all time, as funny today as when I first saw it at 12 years old.
