SNL: Some New Ladies
Meet Jenny Slate. She is the newest castmember to join SNL as they celebrate 35 years on the air. And she dropped the F-Bomb! Classic! Don't worry Jenny, I know how you feel. I do it all the time.
If you are into funny sites and video on the internet as much as moi, you may know Jenny from the Brooklyn based, platonic friend writing duo Gabe and Jenny. (Gabe and Jenny website) Check out The Girlfriend video. It's hilarious!
Nasim Pedrad also joined the cast this season. I'm not sure what to make of her yet. She wasn't in the show that much (unlike Kristen Wig who was in pretty much every sketch). I do know Ms. Pedrad didn't use any expletives. Here's a short list of some other people who did on live television:
- Sue Simmons in 2008 right after she thought they went to break
- Joe Scarborough on Morning Joe while discussing the Obama campaign
- Shaq talking to a reporter in 2006
- Jerry Lewis- yes- at the telethon- in 2007
Oh, by the way, Megan Fox was host. I bet Lorne Michaels had no clue when he booked her that "Jennifer's Body" would drop an f-bomb as well, but this time it was at the box office.
