SNL Jack Harlow Tricks and Treats on Halloween edition

For the second time this season, Saturday Night Live hosting and musical guest duties merged, this time led by rapper Jack Harlow. Having just released his second album, gone on a world tour, and wrapped work on his first film–a remake of 1992’s White Men Can’t Jump–I must confess that I didn’t know much about Jack Harlow going into the show. I was fully convinced he would lack the charisma of someone like Megan Thee Stallion, who proved to be both an engaging host and musical guest. Harlow was surprisingly charming and funny, despite my initial ignorance and apprehension. He proved himself to be a competent host able to handle all the demands of hosting duties. However, he was not immune to the occasional poor sketch construction – like all the other hosts this season.

Best sketch of the night

The sweetness of reality with the spice of comedy is a recipe for hilarity. In this case, it’s the Pixar pitch set against an AA meeting. The result is a Fiat 500–sized car outfitted with snow plow and salt spreader that scrapes along city streets at 3 miles per hour because “that would be hilarious.” And yet we accept this as plausible within the context of the sketch. It’s true comedic gold.”I drank recently, by the way,” delivered deadpan and before expanding on his screenplay idea was a potent pitch-black punch of dark comedy. Every turn the sketch took felt natural that even an out-of-left field cameo from Tom Hanks felt absolutely essential.

Worst sketch of the night

The sketch “Bartenders” was one of the most disappointing of the night. It should have been an easy laugh, anchored in physical prop comedy, but it fell flat. The bartenders had no characterization or motivation, and the physical and prop comedy needed to be bigger.There was a lack of connection between the actors on stage and it seemed quite unnecessary to have anyone sitting at the table. Chris Farely, one of SNL’s most physical performers, had all his frantic movements based in a character. By having “Bartenders” on the same night as the return of “Drunk Uncle,” it created a yearning for more sketches with developmentcomedic characters.
