Free SNL sketch ideas

1. Commercial: protein powder for beer. Perfect for health-conscious bros who still want to enjoy a night out with the guys.

*Bonus: cut to shot of Bill Hader secretly emptying white powder into gin and tonic at the bar. 

2. Paula Deen host. This was not my idea. I think it was Kate’s. Fantastic idea.

3. Foot weight loss cream for summer sandals.

4. Liz Lemon host.

5. Kanye and Jay-Z at coffee shop writing. Both focused. Kanye looks up and sheepishly asks Jay Z if the line, “Tell me what’s next, alien sex” is ‘cool’ or ‘just okay’. Jay Z shrugs his shoulders and says, “Just okay.”

*Funnier if familiar with Katy Perry and Kanye’s song, ‘E.T.’

6. Carrot’s perspective: how it feels to be good enough only when you’re all dressed up. Investigate parallels with Toddlers in Tiaras. Makeup vs. hummus. Veneers vs. ranch.

7. Office meeting in tiny break room. Someone has runny nose. Boss doesn’t understand general irritability.

5. Bachelorette party where the gifts reveal way too much about the giver. Wait — I think this has kind of been done. When Emma Stone hosted? Maybe?

7. Digital Hoarders: fear of deleting recycle bin and temp files. “SHE HAD 42 GB!”

*Don’t think tech can be funny? Remember Nick Burns, Your Company’s Computer Guy?

What are your favorite SNL sketches? Are you sad Kristen Wiig is done? What ideas do you have stashed away?

    Oh gosh. Three-part comment. Here it comes.

    1. At the golf tournament yesterday, this guy insisted I try the health supplement energy powder he sells. I wanted to ask him if I could put it in beer.

    2. When I consider SNL without Kristen Wig, I’m filled with despair. The two biggest questions of the fall: How will the Baylor Bears fill RG3’s shoes? and how will SNL fill Kristen Wiig’s shoes?

    3. sketch idea: pro athlete in-game book clubs. Ever wonder what the base runner and the first baseman have to chat about? Seriously, they gab and gab and chuckle and it’s clearly not about baseball and it’s not trash talk either. I think maybe they’re both reading a Jonathan Franzen novel. The same goes for when basketball players gather together for a teammate huddle before free throws and, perhaps, when two football players are arguing helmet-to-helmet, they’re really intensely debating the merits of Chuck Klosterman vs. Cormac McCarthy.

    Watching Bela Karolyi passionately make the point that Jordyn Wieber shouldn’t miss out on the Olympic all-around competition because she’s “accidentally from the same country” as Gabby Douglas and Aly Raisman, I couldn’t help wishing that Bela and Charles Barkley had a podcast together called “That don’t make no damn sense!” And if it can’t happen for real, it NEEDS to be an SNL sketch.
