    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Chris Stigall spoke with comedian Rob Schneider on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT about the struggle comedians face in today’s current political environment. Schneider struck on ominous tone when discussing the path he sees the country on. “Democracies don’t end well. We are sliding very fast towards fascism. It’s an ugly kind of thing. There’s this kind of mob mentality that we have to be careful of,” he said. He believes comedians are pressured toward one side of the political spectrum. “There’s a polarization that’s happening…I do think you look can look at government and go, ‘Wow, it...

    SNL (Shabbat Nigh Live via Youtube) ^ | 28 March 2014 | Michael Rood
    For Judges to judge, there must be a standard against which all actions are judged. The Book of Judges is preceded by Moses’ reiteration of the Torah just before the nation of Israel proceeds into the Promised Land. The law, the standard of righteousness by which Israel is to govern themselves as a people, is repeated and amplified one last time before the death of Moses. It is in this final instruction of Moses that we find the context to the Book of The Judges, which is a prophetic shadow picture of the day and hour in which we live.

Saturday’s episode earned SNL’s second lowest ratings of the year. "Son of God. Noah," says the narrator. "And now, another extraordinary Biblical film that tells the astonishing story of the Garden of Eden and the Garden of Life itself." Dunham then appears naked. "Adam, Adam, a snake just talked to me.

    There are few prophetic events that stir the imagination more than “the mark of the beast.” For millennia, Bible scholars have attempted to decipher this cryptic code, but not until the end of the age did we have the geo-political world line up so precisely as to offer a plausible explanation that links global religious fanaticism with the ability (or inability) to buy and sell without a “mark” in the right hand or forehead.

    In October, shortly after her controversial MTV Video Music Awards act, Miley Cyrus hosted an episode of “Saturday Night Live.” She gave audiences another R-rated performance by donning a brown wig to cover her blond Mohawk and grinding to the song, “We Did Stop”—a spoof of her summer hit, “We Can’t Stop.” Who was Cyrus supposed to be? Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), partying with a flamboyant Speaker John Boehner (R-OH), portrayed by cast member Taran Killam. Bachmann (Cyrus) and Boehner (Killiam) were celebrating the successful shutdown of the federal government, thus proving they could “do whatever they want.” Ha. Politically...

    "Saturday Night Live" devoted its opening sketch to what was last week's most bizarre story: the scandal surrounding the sign language interpreter who said he has schizophrenia and was hallucinating while signing at Nelson Mandela's memorial service. Kenan Thompson portrayed Thamsanqa Jantjie, the interpreter, during a speech given by President Barack Obama, played by "SNL's" resident president, Jay Pharoah. Jantjie “clearly had no idea what he was doing,” Pharoah's Obama said, before Thompson's faux fake interpreter appeared from behind the podium.

    Saturday Night Live overlord Lorne Michaels reportedly set up a stealth audition for potential black, female cast members amid a clamoring from the Internet that NBC's long-running sketch comedy show had a diversity problem. The cry to add a black comedienne to the cast grew louder in 2013 as SNL replaced four departing cast members with a host of white talent. Then, as those murmurs gained traction and presented an actual PR problem that the network was forced to deal with in the wake of Kenan Thompson's candid interview on the subject, Scandal star Kerry Washington took a turn as...

We promised that it would be, but it’s not. And for that, we apologize.” …Ouch. Of course, they had to include to obligatory last-minute shot at Republicans tacked on at the end, but the cameo by Bill Clinton with his oh-so-unhelpful comments from last week really takes the cake:

SNL cast the hearings as a "partisan witch-hunt" in which Republicans tried to sensationalize the deaths for political gain, using the week's notorious criminals--including alleged kidnapper and rapist Ariel Castro--to gain media attention. The sketch, which opened the show, acknowledged that the media had not covered the Benghazi scandal--but instead of making fun of the...

It’s called, “Djesus Uncrossed.” “Critics are calling it a less violent ‘Passion of the Christ,’” the announcer said. “I never knew how much Jesus used the N-word.” The trailer featured Jesus and the Apostles gunning down scores of Romans. At one point the Jesus character slices a man’s head in half.

    One of the more memorable sketches to air on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” featured actor Alec Baldwin and comedian Adam Sandler as members of a Boy Scout troop. Baldwin played a gay scoutmaster, “Mr. Armstrong.” Sandler reprised his role as “Canteen Boy,” a scout clearly suffering arrested development. In the sketch, Mr. Armstrong makes a sexual advance on Canteen Boy, brushing his unshaven face against the lad. So uncomfortable is Sandler’s character, who is not so dimwitted that he doesn’t know a pedophile when he sees one, that he flees into the woods. The sketch was uproariously funny. But what...

Yes, the majority of their skits still tend toward skewering conservatives and Republicans, but to give credit where credit is due, they do take some shots at Obama when the target is too obvious to ignore. Such was the case with last week’s debate.... was a fairly glaring attack not just on Obama’s poor performance, but the totally vacuous nature of the MSNBC prime time lineup.
