I used to love watching the last 30 minutes of Saturday Night Live because that is when they often took risk with their material, Sometimes they failed miserable others turned out to be some of their funniest stuff. Here are a few of my favroite one time skits. Any one remember these?
1. Fred Garvin "Male Prostitute" - Dan Akyrod in a plaid sports coat with dark rim glasses played a gigilo who was paid to entertain business ladies.
2. "What the Hell is That?" - Steve Martin played a country gas station attendant looking at some thing off screen trying determine what it was..you get the impression it's an UFO but the entire skit was Martin with a quizical look on his face repeating the phrase "Well that the hell is that?"
3.Talk Show - made up of a panel of guest all claiming to have had sex with margret trodeau
4. Sam Walton - promising to pay every american $1,000 to contact his or her congressman urging them to vote against a new tax increase. The sam walton character reappeared later in the telecast to rescind the offer after consulting with his accountant and learing it was cost prohibitive.
5. "Little Elvis" The Memphis mafia riding around with a very bossy minature Elvis Presley on the dashboard barking orders.
