SNL: S20E09... HOST: GEORGE FOREMAN... DATE: DECEMBER 17, 1994

The Wicker Breakdown:

  1. This week's show started with A Christmas Message From The President And Mrs. Clinton with Michael McKean as Bill and Janeane Garofalo as Hillary Clinton who shared their message of about how Bill’s new tax break for the middle class should provide enough extra cash for an extra special Christmas, while completely ignoring the poor. There was also a reference to another plane hitting the White House, which is another one of these news stories from this year that I barely remember since it never led to anything. It must have been funny back then because it did get a few laughs before leading to the announcement of, “Live from New York…”
  2. George Foreman then officially opened the show with a monolog about his late-life comeback to boxing which led him to joke about how easy it was to beat up the entire cast during any disagreements that came about during their rehearsals.
  3. Time Boxer was a sketch where George Foreman played himself as a time-traveling boxer who accidentally got sent back to 1939 where he ended up in a boxing match with Adolf Hitler. The beating he gives to the angry dictator inadvertently created a butterfly effect where George Foreman ended up the Fuehrer of the world, only using peace while avoiding the whole holocaust.
  4. Looking Good was a makeover infomercial with Janeane Garofalo and George Foreman as the pitchman. The way this system being sold works is that George Foreman beats the ugliness out of his customers.
  5. Hole then took to the stage to perform Doll Parts. 
  6. Once again, Norm MacDonald gave us the news. This week, Janeane Garofalo dropped in as Martha Stewart to share some ideas to make your house more festive for the holidays only Norm MacDonald kept getting hung up on her fancy choices of words. Adam Sandler and David Spade also returned as their, Two Guys From A Religious Cult, characters who reviewed a new New York City restaurant. We also got to hear from Chris Farley who played the cult leader who joined in on the review via satellite.
  7. Matt Foley: Motivational Trainer was a sketch where Chris Farley’s motivational Matt Foley character returned to share the tale of how he was the one who trained the great George Foreman for his amazing late-life comeback to the sport of boxing. Mainly, Foley’s annoying ass inspired Foreman to want to hit people again, after he had found peace and swore off any acts of violence.
  8. George Foreman then played a character named Uncle Joe who was attending his niece's wedding. Even though he just wants to enjoy his time as a guest, the host of the night keeps pressuring Uncle Joe to get involved and provide the entertainment by singing multiple songs even though he keeps aggressively saying no.
  9. We then got a parody of The Incredible Hulk where Tim Meadows played Bruce Banner who kept turning into Foreman as the Hulk over even the slightest of injuries. Fortunately, since the Hulk was so old, he kept having to nap before he could do too much damage to the room. Eventually, the Hulk broke the sketch to complain to the writers about how their sketches are so repetitive.
  10. Hole then returned to the stage to perform Violet. 
  11. Chris Elliot's Bedtime Story was a sketch where Chris Elliot barged into George Foreman’s dressing room in order to take a nap on the couch and demands that our host read him a bedtime story since he can’t sleep without a tale to send him into slumber. George then read the book Goodnight Moon while Elliott acted like a child who kept chiming in with questions about the simple plot.
  12. "Stalking" by Bruce McCulloch was a short film written, directed, and starring the founding member of The Kids In The Hall where he got caught stalking Janeane Garofalo. Even though she doesn’t accept him as a mate, she does seem excited about the introduction.
  13. Jackie Stallone's Psychic Circle was a parody of Jackie’s Psychic ads only in this version she claimed to be able to predict if her caller would be a success like her son Sylvester or a failure just like Frank.
  14. Finally, George Foreman closed the show by thanking the audience and saying his goodnights.
