    Cecily Strong introduced each of the GOP presidential "hopefuls" with a series of all-too-accurate puns.The Southern Republican Leadership Conference looks way more fun when it happens on “Saturday Night Live.”“SNL” mocked the event in its cold open this week, playing up the gathering of GOP presidential hopefuls as “the hottest event of the year,” complete with dance numbers and a very punny DJ (Cecily Strong). Strong introduced each of the “candidates” with zingers that ranged from a little painful (did Mike Huckabee really turn Arkansas “from a red state to a shred state”?) to, well, funny — and rather accurate....

Game show contestant Daniel Hoffman (Bobby Moynihan) and his celebrity teammate, Reginald VelJohnson (Kenan Thompson), must draw the Muhammad if they want to win $1 million. Will the media sharia thugs excoriate SNL for ‘taunting’ the Muslim world? Will the media sharia thugs condemn SNL for inciting the Muslim world for mocking them? Will the media sharia thugs continue to demand that freedom loving Americans adhere to the sharia?

    Saturday Night Live star Cecily Strong hosted the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner Saturday night, cracking jokes at the expense of the 2016 presidential contenders, the Clinton Foundation, attendant members of the mainstream media, and of course, President Obama. But a couple of Strong’s jokes may have come at the worst possible time; a quip about racist police drew laughter and groans while the city of Baltimore was besieged by a race-based riot just a few miles away.

    Liberals have spent years praising Hillary Clinton, calling her smart, tough and tenacious. Did it matter that her record of accomplishment in office was wafer-thin, or that the media is currently letting her skirt blame for the Benghazi debacle? "Saturday Night Live" star Seth Meyers is adding a new compliment to the liberal talking points to describe the outgoing Secretary of State. Sexy. And we don't think Meyers is trying to be funny.

    Last weekend Saturday Night Live presented a skit that mocked terrorists – no, not Tea Partiers, the usual butt of Hollywood’s jokes and DHS surveillance, but ISIS itself. The bit got mixed reactions – some found it in offensively bad taste, some appreciated the dark humor. This raises a serious question about comedy: is it ever acceptable to joke about terrorism?

Murphy was expected to play Cosby during a “Celebrity Jeopardy!” skit with the category “Potent Potables” alluding to allegations Cosby spiked women’s drinks and raped them, Norm Macdonald tweeted.

    Back in the fall of 2006, long before Brian Williams confessed to “conflating” his helicopter adventures over Iraq, Neal Santangelo knew the NBC news anchor was a fraud. Santangelo, a Boston firefighter, former president of Local 718 and a proud veteran of the Navy submarine service, served on a committee that brought the Congressional Medal of Honor Society to Boston that year for its national convention. About six months before the society’s gala banquet at the Convention Center, Williams agreed to serve as master of ceremonies. But when he arrived on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2006, Williams told committee members Tom...

    Do you all realize what a major deal it is that liberal comics are now openly ridiculing President Obama — and not just for his mannerisms and the like but based on his abject policy failures? In his first few years and beyond, liberal funnymen sometimes complained that Obama was so flawless that he didn’t provide them any material. Of course, we knew at the time that this otherworldly caricature of Obama was wholly mythical, but it was nonetheless very real in the eyes of its liberal beholders. They regarded him with a quasi-idolatrous zeal — almost as though it...

Rather than trying to scatter the smack talk across both parties, this was pretty much a mockery of Barack Obama’s entire second term, with the fake President himself doing the mocking. “Some people want to criticize the way our administration has...

In 1980, legendary comedian Andy Kaufman and his writing partner, Bob Zmuda, wrote a script for a film called “The Tony Clifton Story,” based on a character of Kaufman’s. On Page 124, there is a block of dialogue intended for Kaufman to speak as himself, informing viewers of Clifton’s demise. Among the lines: “On June 12, 1980 . . . Tony Clifton, at the age of 45, died of cancer at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Hollywood, California.” Four years later, at age 35, Kaufman himself would,...

    The amount of mockery presidents endure usually corresponds with their polling. It applies to Republicans (Nixon, Bush, Bush), but sometimes also to Democrats (Carter). In 2012, the Center for Media and Public Affairs found network late-night shows told twice as many jokes about Mitt Romney as they told about President Obama. Was it because Obama was more popular than Romney? Or did it make Obama more popular than his opponent? Obama isn't running for office again, so there's no need for satirists to go easy on him at the risk of endangering his electability. The last NBC poll put Obama's...
