Former SNL cast members such as Chris Redd and Jon Lovitz echoed their wisdom, pointing out that the comedy show features sketches, not skits.
Once on SNL, I said I had an idea for a sketch. Lorne said contentedly, “Jon, we don’t do skits. Skits are what they do on the Carol Burnett show. We do sketches. »Https://t.co/QTIJPbTZzc – Jon Lovitz (@realjonlovitz) May 2, 2021
Musk’s tweets came just days after multiple media outlets claimed SNL would not force cast members to appear alongside the controversial billionaire when he appeared.
Sources said Musk is scheduled to host NBC’s live sketch show on Saturday with musician Miley Cyrus. Apparently, its preparation is underway.
NBC rarely chooses hosts from the tech or business world for SNL. Previously, he had invited former New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner and former US President Donald Trump, before he was elected president in 2016.
SNL recently announced its final two hosts for Season 46. Comedian Keegan-Michael Key and The Queen’s Gambit co-star Anya Taylor-Joy will host the final two episodes of the season in May. Key will be joined by musical guest Olivia Rodrigo and Joy will be joined by musical guest Lil Nas X.
SNL is a late night live television comedy and variety show. The comedy skits of the show are usually presented as a parody or satire on contemporary culture and politics. A famous guest hosts each episode of the show, which typically delivers the opening monologue and also performs in sketches with the cast, with performances featured by a musical guest.
One of the oldest network television programs in the United States, SNL airs from Studio 8H at NBC headquarters in the Comcast building at 30 Rockefeller Plaza.
