SNL Throwback Of The Week #10, 4/17/2010

I am a huge Saturday Night Live fan. One of my earliest memories was of my parents watching SNL every Saturday while we were tucked in our bedrooms, and sometimes being allowed to watch for a bit. The show has gone through its ups and downs over its 35 year run, but the fact that it is still on the air after 35 years is a testament to the staying power of the show. Lorne Michaels is a genius at finding and developing young, comedic talent. SNL has produced a bevy of stars over the years, from Eddie Murphy to Tina Fey. The show is doing well again thanks to Ms. Fey and the rest of the team, but I love watching clips from the old shows. Every Saturday I will give you guys one of my favorites. This weeks clip features Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon as 2/3 of The BeeGees hosting the Andy Gibb Talk Show. Now I know that your probably saying: "How the hell can that be funny?" But after hearing Jimmy Fallon's dead on inpersonation of Andy Gibb for 2 seconds and you will be rolling. Once you add Justin Timberlake as the semi mute Robin Gibb, the results are excellent. I do not care for Timberlake so much as an musical artist, but he is a very funny actor and truly steals the show every time he is on SNL. Hope you enjoy the clip this week. Thanks to Hulu for the video. Live from my living room... It's Saturday Night!!!
