    So…this is the difference between a random guest who has their one “funny/interesting” story prepared and just two funny people having a good time.

    I usually hate the guest spots but when you get a real comedian in there it just makes it so much fun to watch.

    The SNL reminiscences sound like a Tiny Secret Whispers improv bit. But how can anyone really know. Kinda lost on me, not one glimmer of a smile through all of that.
