While Kornflake's away, Kevin and the Mayor discuss a recent stand-up comedy show from Saturday Night Live veterans Jon Lovitz (Tonto!), Tim Meadows (The Ladies Man!), and Chris Kattan (Mango!). 'Twas a fun show, especially the opening set by a friend of the Flopcast, TV Guidance Counselor's Ken Reid. And we were inspired to recall all the times we've previously encountered SNL cast members. Including: A long ago stand-up set from Dana Carvey, a powerful one-woman show from Julia Sweeney, and a goofy evening with Adam Sandler (plus a surprise appearance by Rob Schneider). There have been about 150 SNL cast members, and our personal SNL life list stands at just sixteen, so there is much work to be done. (The search for Melanie Hutsell begins tomorrow...) Meanwhile, Kevin also attended a new show called The Buy Me Boston Video Loft, a fascinating evening of rare Boston-area video clips from decades past. A 1970s kids show, a 1980s high school rap video, a punk rock fashion show, a cable access dance show... it was all just magnificent. There's also a Buy Me Boston book, filled with amazing old newspaper ads. And as you may have noticed, we sort of enjoy weird old stuff.
