I watched that SNL 40 thing everyone was talking about a few days ago. It was a bit too self-congratulatory and Lorne Michaels-centric, but man were some of those old clips funny. I was tempted to do a “what’s the best sketch/recurring character ever”, but there’s just too much good stuff. (I don’t think could choose between “Buckwheat is Dead” and Nick Winters/Rails, and those are two of the first few that come to mind.)
But…what are the worst recurring characters ever? I’ll go with Operaman and they “you likah the juice guys” but I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s something even worse in the Sandler-era oeuvre.
