  • The return of SNL’s Jacob the Bar Mitzvah Boy!

    One of my personal favorite “Saturday Night Live” Weekend Update characters, Jacob the Bar Mitzvah Boy, who is portrayed by the hilairous Jewish castmember Vanessa Bayer, made an appearance on Saturday to explain to the  Passover to the host, Seth Meyers.

  • The SNL skit you didn’t see

    It might have its moments, but for the most part, NBC’s Saturday Night Live is not very funny. Which is why we’re confused SNL cut the skit of a C-SPAN spoof of confirmation hearings for Chuck Hagel, President Obama’s nominee for secretary of defense.

    In a show that turned an eccentric Flushing-Jewish stereotype into an art form, Sylvia Fine, portrayed by Renée Taylor, was the queen. Constantly visiting the princess, Fran, and the Queen-mother, Yetta, Sylvia Fine (née Rosenberg) was a New York Jewish mother in a nutshell – overbearing, loud, hungry and mostly dominant.  Oh, and loud too.
