It’s really hard to pick just one!

The Vincent Price holiday skits have me in tears. Especially the most recent one for Valentine’s Day.

The whiteface sketch from the Eddie Murphy years:“What are you doing?” “I’m… trying to buy this newspaper!”

Gawd, he had a ton of them, didn’t he?

Eddie, we’ll forget the tranny if you do good films again! Please!

@aprilsimnel – Yes he had a lot of good ones. Mr. Robinson’s Neighborhood and “I’m Gumby Damnit”

It’s difficult to pick only one. Samurai Hotel, Chris Farley living in A Van Down By The River, the commercials for Bad Idea Jeans and Ass Don’t Smell, the All-Drug Olympics…

aprilsimnel's avatar

Oh! Little Chocolate Donuts, what any Olympian needs on their training table!

And Jewess Jeans! You don’t have to be Jewish to wear them, but it couldn’t hurt!

The Julia Child parody where Dan Ackroyd cuts himself and spurts blood everywhere.

Samurai Hotel with John Belushi and Richard Pryor

(Yes, I snuck out of bed to watch these as a child, why do you ask?)

@aprilsimnel – I stayed up also keeping the volume low and hoping my parents didn’t see the glow of the TV in my room.

I have to add the Coneheads to the list and Jaws “Land Shark” knocking on the door.

The only funny sketches that pretty boy what ‘is name ever did: The Barry Gibb Talk Show.

And Justin Timberlake was funnier than he was in it. Omeletville had me cracking up, too. Justin Timberlake is the young Alec Baldwin re that show.

I’m gonna cast my vote for the episode of Wayne’s World with Tom Hanks, Aerosmith, and Wayne’s mom.

@Kiev749 “I’ll take Famous Titties for 400.”

Mr_M's avatar

None. I don’t think that show is funny.

Aethelwine's avatar

Debbie Downer’s first skit was hilarious.

My most recent favorite is Smell that peppa? when michael phelps was on.
“we have over 4 different kinds of soda, we got brown ones and we got clear ones”
I love almost all the ones mentioned already. It’s impossible to pick one.

More recently Dick in a Box was hilarious. NSFW.

The Spartan Cheerleaders
The NPR ladies (Schwety Balls)
Weekend Update, especially with Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon
A one time skit with Claire Danes as Tinkerbell is my
favorite skit ever. (“I’m drunk and someone’s going to get cut.”)

saranwrapper's avatar

The bird family sketch where they’re all passing food with their mouths and anything Brian Fellow.

Aethelwine's avatar

@saranwrapper Love both of those!

tiffyandthewall's avatar

jettaray87's avatar

I really wish I could find the Lovahs on YouTube.

jettaray87's avatar

@Bri_L I had seen that one, it is really funny. Do you know where to find any more? How many different ones are there? I have only seen that one and the one with Drew Barrymore.

Aethelwine's avatar

@jettaray87 – sorry for not getting back to you very quickly. I was out of town. I searched on Hulu. It is possible there may be others there as well if you search for Will Ferrall
