SNL Dawn Farraway coffee commercial skit

From last night. They’ve taken the Faye Dunaway clip of her asking someone to leave a set that was in her eye line that recently went viral, and Lauren Bacall’s 80s High Point coffee commercials, and I Love Lucy’s Vitameatavegamin bit and rolled them all into one sketch. The moment I saw this I thought of DataLounge.

I don’t get the Vitameatavegamin connection

Sort of funny. More interesting is the references… that old Dunaway clip flying around TikTok and then suddenly it’s on SNL a week later.

“I… line.”

Would be a perfect skit without the farting stuff.

R4 Agree. The original source material is already funny as is.

I don’t understand how this got made. The number of people who would get the references is probably less than 200, and they all post here.

I swear if we see a sketch about an overflowing toilet at the Bellagio I will scream.

I loved it. Maya is great.

Maya is amazing. She makes it look so effortless while while everyone else is struggling. Bowen Yang was good too, but nowhere near Maya

Jesus Christ r1

Vitameatavegamin had high alcohol content and Lucy got drunk as she did multiple takes

Coffee is a laxative and Dawn gets gassier and gassier as she does multiple takes

Like I said, the number of people who would make these connections is infinitesimally small. Even R1 didn’t get it.

Maybe it would have been funny 40 years ago.

Maya's a hoot at spoofing celebrities... her Liza was insanely funny...

Oh, that explains it.

One season, they referenced Royce and Marilyn, two old ladies from LA that were a SoCal phenomenon only.

I agree the farting cheapened the humor for me.

But Maya killed it.

by Anonymousreply 16May 13, 2024 3:02 AM

It isn't very funny. The humor seems very dated. The skit shows how far SNL has declined over the years. 25 years ago, this skit would never have made the cut to even appear on the air.

All of the farting reminded me of the train wreck of an episode when January Jones hosted.

by Anonymousreply 18May 13, 2024 3:38 AM

It was as if they didn't know a smart and funny way to end it so they made it into a fart joke.

by Anonymousreply 19May 13, 2024 3:45 AM

Also—One of the photos of Maya after a break had her as Faye doing the “No Wire Hangers” scene.

Yes, r19–they totally ruined it.

This would have been funny without the farting.

Maya as Liza. This is a very funny skit.

I got two minutes in and didn't even crack a smile. Let's hope NBC puts this show to rest after season 50.

I don't watch SNL much but between that skit where cicily channels Julia Sygarbaker they are trolling data lounge clearly.n

I laughed so hard I farted.

by Anonymousreply 25May 13, 2024 4:42 AM

I thought at first she shat her pants similar to Kristen Wiig as Jamie Lee Curtis shooting the Activia commercials. If the cast wants to do juvenile, gross-out humor, they should go for it, like Dan Ackroyd’s Julia Child bleeding out all over the place. Why not have Maya spurting diarrhea everywhere instead of just her pretending to fart? Now that would be funny.

by Anonymousreply 26May 13, 2024 4:43 AM

Do they do a funny version?

by Anonymousreply 27May 13, 2024 4:52 AM

I had seen the Faye bit about eyeline on social so I knew right away what they were doing. I agree the fart bit was unnecessary.

That said, Maya is brilliant.

My four favorite SNL women are Gilda, Jan Hooks, Maya, and Cecily Strong.

Jackee gave an interview in which she said Connie Ford blasted her on AW for being in her eye line.

It's not that the actor doesn't have a point but do they have to be so cunty about it?

A pale imitation.

They should have had Donald Trump guest-starring in the skit.

R17 R23. BROKEN RECORD with you Bitter Betties. The same fucking anti SNL whine every fucking week on every fucking thread. Sheesh. Stop watching it. You're pathetic.

I remember Anne Hathaway's Katie Holmes imitation was the funniest thing I'd seen on the show in years.

by Anonymousreply 32May 13, 2024 5:30 AM

Fucking garbage.

Farting and shitting humor is the lowest of the lowest comedy, barely even comedy at all.

When you have no ideas, go with farting and sharting.

by Anonymousreply 33May 13, 2024 5:51 AM

OP - I instantly thought of Datalounge, too! And these very 'inside baseball' references tickled me. I'm 12, so I'm never going to not find fart humor funny -- especially when done so well by a true artist like Maya. But, the farts were there so the straights could still laugh even though they wouldn't get the references.

I wish IMDB listed the writer credits for each sketch. I have to assume Bowen co-wrote this one. But, this is why it's so great to have gay writers and performers on SNL.
