Brian Fellow Is Hosting SNL!

by admin February 23, 2009 3:54 pm
Brian Fellow Is Hosting SNL! When SNL alums return to their alma mater, the results are a mixed bag. In the last few months, we saw the welcome return of Tina Fey playing Sarah Palin to hysterically witless effect. On the other hand, we were also forced to suffer through Steve Martin's one billionth hosting gig, which stretched out one gag (that he's a self-satisfied blow hard) for exactly one hour and twenty minutes too long. But news that Tracy Morgan will revisit his old stomping grounds on March 14 instantaneously made me jump up and down, clapping and making high-pitched screeching noises that can only be heard by dogs. In other words, hells to the yes! No one can meld childlike and gangsta quite like Tracy M. In anticipation of his guest spot, I've dug up some choice Hulu clips (sorry in advance to our European friends) of Tracy at his finest and I'm crossing my fingers that at least one of them will make a cameo when he shows up at SNL in a few weeks. Strangely, there were no clips of my favorite Tracy incarnation, Astronaut Jones, the smooth-talking, street-savvy space adventurer, so you'll have to peruse non-Hulu sources for those, but peep the rest and get jazzed for his upcoming appearance after the jump.

Pimp Chat
As Bishop Don "Mack" Donald, Tracy conducted interviews with fellow pimps Pimpin' Kyle and Mr. White Chocolate in the back of his Caddy, stopping only to yell out the window, "Bitch, you got my money? I ain't playin'!" and awarded Bill Clinton a set of genuine Lee Press-On Gold Teeth for winning the prestigious Pimp of the Month honor. Only slightly less funny than the real public access shows from which this sketch was poached.


Uncle Jemima's Pure Mash Liquor
Did you know Aunt Jemima's husband was a bitter drunk hobo whose only friends were imaginary animated birds? You do now! Anyone whose motto is "Let's show that bitch there's more in this world than just makin' pancakes!" is OK by me.


Brian Fellow's Safari Planet
Possibly Tracy's most memorable character, developmentally-challenged adolescent animal lover Brian Fellow has given us such winning aphorisms as "that's one fuzzy bug," "that goat's got devil eyes!" and "that bird better pray he don't screw up my credit!" And all while inexplicably wearing lip gloss.


Dominican Lou
If I had no sense of humor about such things, I might think this stereotypical caricature of Dominican baseball aficionado Lou was highly offensive. But I do. Therefore, this is hilarious.


Woodrow the Homeless Man
I gotta admit, Woodrow's my least favorite Tracy character, but out of sheer obligation to the superfans out there who might call for my decapitation if I excluded him, I'm putting him here. That's love, y'all! I'm totally jealous of his outfit, though. And his song-writing skills.
