You keep talking about amazing moments, and then not showing them. Who edited this thing anyway?

How could you not list the sketch Jeffrey's with Sean Hayes. Jimmy Fallon is already losing it before a word is even spoken, but when Horatio Sanz shows up the damn bursts for Hayes, and Will appearing just ruins the sketch since nobody can function

I'm afraid you've made a pronunciational error. It's not pronounced "hot tub," it's pronounced "hot *TUB*."

What could be better than actually letting us see the damn clips, and the moment that caused the break in character? Maybe talking through the whole fucking thing and cutting it off before we see and hear it. Keep up the shitty work

If you just left the select sketch bits free of interpretation it wouldn't need interpretation, and wouldn't just be a list of short bits of the skits used to highlight the narrator speaking.

Super annoying commercial interruptions. Let's make a video and then immediately ruin it because we're so greedy we gotta cram MORE ads in

If I could watch a bit without an ad that I couldn't skip right during the set-up, this may have been funnier

This would be good, if you actually played the clips instead of describing them in detail and then jumping to the next one. *Fail!* Aren't clips covered under fair use? If not, why bother?

I like the skits you pick for these top 10 snl breaking character moments. But it seems you think your voice over is more important than the clips in the countdown. Or maybe you are from a radio background. Where you had to describe what listeners couldnt see. But it is not as entertaining listening to you talk over every laugh and its cause. Explaining what we could be enjoying if you weren't talking over it. You can pause. Cut to you. Simply give the behind the scenes info we may not know. Play clip. I always have to go and individually look up each of the top clips I haven't seen. Right after you "showing" them. And watch them again...for the first time.

There was a real old one with Candace Bergen (the first woman to host the show). She was in a skit with Gilda Radner, something about fundraising for the very dumb. Candace gets the characters' names confused and Gilda (the dumb one) has to correct her. Then Gilda launches on a monologue and you see Candice desperately trying to hold on. Then Gilda ad-libs a line ("Some people, even Fern here...") and it totally destroys Bergen. I think she slumps to the floor from her chair from laughing. She did recover and finish the sketch. Couldn't have been easy.

I remember in the 8th grade before summer started, my history teacher wheeled a tv into the classroom. We all thought he was going to force us to do one last school related thing before the year ended. No. He put the tv on and played a recorded tape he had of the "more cowbell" skit 😂 he thought it was too funny to not show us.

A couple cast members, Tracy Morgan most notably, took Jimmy Fallon aside and told him to stop breaking on purpose for attention...

I remember Farley's Motivational Speaker skit. I laughed so hard I cried. The acid might have had a little to do with it, but not much because it's still as funny today!

I liked the skit with Jimmy Fallon and Sean Hayes, they were these snooty high end fashion store employees. Will Ferrel came in on a motorized cart and he pulled out this teeny cell phone. Everyone broke character and started cracking up.
