Had the chance to see this comic
play skit recently. It was funny but uneven. It really was a very long Saturday Night Live sketch that sometimes hit and sometimes missed. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but Neil Simon they ain’t (does anyone else alive even know who Neil Simon was is?) Sigh.
I may have enjoyed it more had I known the likes of the two handers Nick Kroll and John Mulaney. There were obviously great fans of them in the house who picked up on the mysterious touchstones of their work (apparently they regularly experience peak tuna). I enjoyed the many theatre references including the obligatory dream ballet. That said there were many inside jokes, the theater ones I got, apparently some pop references I missed.
In today’s times this provides a very good excuse to spend an evening laughing. Give it a try. Ultimately I left entertained if sometimes a little confused.
