A late-night comedy show featuring several short skits, parodies of television commercials, a live guest band, and a pop-cultural guest host each week. Many of the SNL players have spun off successful independent comedy and/or movie careers from here.
This is the original broadcast version on the 7-second delay from May 1990 and has the following differences from the rerun:
-Most of Clay’s monologue is replaced in the repeat with Clay doing his “clean jokes” because some hecklers can be heard in the live show. Clay also announces that he is donating his paycheck to Comic Relief in the live monologue (which aired opposite the original broadcast).
-Dad, What’s Sex in the classic SNL is completely uncensored, while the 7-second delay version has very awkward muting of portions of Clay’s explanation of sex, muting more than just the offending words and at one point the word “poontang” slips through anyway.
-Cool Mite has a sequence where a dog is supposed to come up and snatch away the doll standing in for Dice’s character, but he never comes forcing the cast to awkwardly ad-lib. Dress rehearsal footage is used for the classic SNL.
-Ridiculous Bull has a video issue where the motion in the scene freezes up every few seconds. This is not an issue with the recording but appears to be a network issue because I have another recording from a different affiliate with the same issue.
-Pardo has a voiceover the goodnights jokingly commenting on Dunn not appearing in the show.
