Kristen Wiig in Lifetime Gameshow (SNL) - this is HILARIOUS!!!

Hahahaha. Wow, this is edgy and super clever. Reminds me of the original SNL. A rare gem. Watch it noooooooowwwww!

Lifetime Gameshow - What's Wrong With Tanya?!

Anna Faris ... Mary Jo Beth Jojo
Vanessa Bayer ... Mary Jo Williams
Abby Elliott ... Tanya
Bill Hader ... Vince Blake
Andy Samberg ... Boy Tanya
Kristen Wiig ... announcer (voice)
Kristen Wiig ... JoBeth Anderson

Where did SNL suddenly get its edginess for this skit? Who wrote this masterpiece?

I'm not sure. I read somewhere that Vince Blake (Bill Hader's character) is a recurring character, but I'm still looking into that.

Anyway, this is edgy because it throws out sexual abuse as jokes, something that the original SNL players wouldn't have been afraid to do (they cut at everything from violence, to beating women, to sexism, to racism... anything edgy). Take Andy Samberg's male Tanya character. The jokes there are that he was sexually abused by his teacher and can't read. Wow. That's intense that (1) They presented those statements as jokes and (2) They got the audience (and me) to laugh at that. Wow.

And then it's super clever, because it is based in this world where the Lifetime movie conditions of life are actually reality (such as the fake raking, all the moms wear similar clothes, all the moms have similar names, all the kids are named Tanya, and Bill Hader's eruptions of control over Anna Farris). They created their own reality that mocks Lifetime movies. It's truly amazing.

Kristen Wiig doesn't get the best lines, but she supports well. The real stars here are Bill Hader, Anna Faris, and Andy Samberg (who makes the audience erupt in laughter without saying anything). Andy is starting to beat Kenan for best looks when never saying a line. =^)
