The Nose Hosts 'SNL' In Its Pajamas

Apr 17, 2020

Last weekend, Saturday Night Live aired a prerecorded special, "Saturday Night Live at Home." Tom Hanks hosted from his kitchen. Michael Che and Colin Jost did Weekend Update from their living rooms and by Zoom or something similar. Chris Martin covered a Bob Dylan song in front of handwritten "ENTRANCE TO TRAIN" signs.

All of the late night shows are operating in some similar way right now. Jimmy Kimmel hosts from his living room and has people like Jason Bateman on by Skype or whatever. John Oliver sits at his desk in front of a mysterious white wall. Samantha Bee hosts from the woods.

And: The original one-woman stage version of Fleabag just hit Amazon Prime. The Nose missed the TV show, and so now this gives us an excuse to finally get on the Fleabag bandwagon a little bit.

Some other stuff that happened this week, give or take:

GUESTS:

  • Carolyn Paine - An actress, comedian, and dancer; founder, director, and choreographer of CONNetic Dance
  • Bill Yousman - Professor of Media Studies at Sacred Heart University
