And now for a truly spooky throwback! Circa the dark and mystical days of 2007, SNL did a dead-on political sketch featuring kween Amy Poehler as Hillary Clinton. Omg remember when we thought she was gonna be the ’08 nominee? And when Obama didn’t have white hair? And when Kristen Wiig was just playing ‘the wife’ in sketches? Truly a different, more innocent time.
We’re starting to think that Tina Fey can see the future. This sketch from the 90’s featuring a competent woman in politics being belittled and shouted over gives us a real weird deja vu feeling. Fortunately Fey and Dratch can make even the darkest shit hilarious.
We could prob guess your age based on whether you know Whoopi Goldberg from Sister Act, Star Trek, The Color Purple, or The View. But we won’t, because this isn’t that kinda site.
A lot of people forget, though, that Whoopi had a talk show in the 90’s, and had some of the most amazing women in showbiz as guests, including the hilarious Joan Rivers. It got real poignant. The footage is super raw, but the conversation is worth it.
Is this one of the funniest things ever to happen on a talk show? YEAH NO DUH DUDE. Amy Poehler used to go on Conan in the 90’s to play Andy Richter’s littler sister, and it was pure manic magic.
Brb, making Amy screaming ‘playtime is over, beantown beanpole’ into our ringtones.
Amber Rose is all of us, waiting for Conan but settling for White Castle.
But how cute is she in this interview? We love imagining bb Amber sitting on the train, vowing to hustle until she made it to late night talk shows. Gives us those Friday feminist feels.
Tina has always been queen. And this part improv, part scripted NPR parody from her Second City days in 1997 would probably still kill on SNL. Also how is Rachel Dratch always a 100% perfect person?? Women in comedy goals over here.
