14 episodes

Join Seth Meyers as he sits down with fellow SNL alum and comedy-music sensations The Lonely Island (Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone) to discuss their wildly popular and groundbreaking series of SNL Digital Shorts that aired on Saturday Night Live beginning in 2005. Episode by episode they'll discuss how each short was created, what the response to it was at the time, and what impact, if any, it still has today. Aided by Seth, the guys will relive their time at SNL and reminisce on the nearly 50-year-old show from a time when putting short comedy sketches on the internet was so novel that they maybe even helped launch YouTube to do it. Along the way they'll talk all things SNL from guests, fellow cast members, and favorite live sketches including many that never aired.

Handlebar & Lobster Claw

I hope at some point in SNL 50 they randomly play Handlebar & Lobster Claw

And, since this is technically supposed to be a “review” I guess, love the podcast. 5 Stars

Two of Hearts

Love the show. Can’t believe Danny shoving Jorm into a van while dancing didn’t come up in either Hot Rod episodes

The chemistry is comedy gold

I apologize to Andy, Akiva, Jorma, and Seth (ouch Meyers, how does it feel to be relegated to alphabetical order) for referencing a competing product in a compliment. Here goes - this is the first podcast that has actually replicated what gave Smartless its meteoric rise: it’s a collection of uniquely hilarious people with fantastic chemistry. I’ve listened way too much to each episode just because they’re fun. Please keep making these.
