Stick Figure Night Live! is a series of stick figure comic “recreations” of episodes of Saturday Night Live. Just as the show itself is performed live, the comics are drawn “live” while watching the show (with the occasional assist from DVR or some digital clean-up post scanning).


Belated Happy Holidays & Happy New Year.
(clicking the hyperlinked sentence will take you to my holiday card this year…which is a bit more refined than these stick figure comics – figured I’d share) On to the show:

Anyone else prefer Andy Samberg’s Rick Santorum as a frightened, bug-eyed dweeb as he’s played him in previous sketches?

Was the line “we’re all black friends” (in the “Inside the NBA” sketch)  a misread cue card, a weird improvisation, or exactly what was supposed to happen?

“White People Problems” was a tricky one…and instead of trying to draw out each scenario I tried to encapsulate the major beats in one panel. Looking at the panel it does seem a bit sparse and poorly composed.

On the other hand, though it’s not a complete picture, I’m pretty pleased with the “summation” of Nicholas Fehn and Drunk Uncle during Update.

Daniel Radcliffe next week. I’m predicting Harry Potter references during the monologue, possibly in the form of an audience Q&A…which brings to mind the Harry Potter sketch way back when with Linday Lohan, when she was…healthier.

    Seth is the only current cast member from the Lohan sketch, as Ron Weasley. I really hope someone will do an Alan Rickman impression somewhere in the episode, probably in the monologue!

      I certainly don’t imagine a rehash of that sketch, I was more feeling nostalgic.

      Meanwhile, having nothing to do with SNL, if you’re looking for Alan Rickman impressions, there are a few on a recent “Doug Loves Movies” podcast (the 12/30/11 episode) as well as James Adomian’s take on the “Comedy Bang Bang” podcast (episode 98)…both of which you might already be well aware of.
